Swedish-German battery partnership takes drive system to new heights
Höganäs AB has launched a new range of drive systems together with German battery experts VARTA Microbattery GmbH. The drive systems are based on Höganäs’ transversal flux motor technology and are completed with Engion™ batteries from VARTA Microbattery. This combination results in a hill climbing ability and commuting range that takes riding experience to new heights.
– The cooperation of two strong European companies with experience and history in their own specific technologies, partnering to produce an efficient and optimised drive system, is a big step forward for the future of electric bikes, says Fred Schellert, General Manager of VARTA Microbattery–Power Pack Solutions
The first e-bikes utilising the new Höganäs Eclino™ drive systems will be on display by OhmCycles at the Eurobike 2014 fair in Friedrichshafen.
