How the new Lancia eBikes are made
The four e-bikes are equipped with a brake lever with an engine cut-off sensor, which improves the performance of the braking system. The management of the main functions, including switching on, the operation of the lights and the selection between three levels of assistance, takes place via the waterproof LED display.
Let’s start with the first model, Lancia Ypsilon Brio. This is the folding e-bike dedicated to people who want a light and agile way to get around the city. The aluminum frame folds up and, together with the small size of the wheels (20 ” x 2,125 ”), is a feature that allows you to easily transport the e-bike on public and private transport. The 250W Bafang brushless rear motor and the 36V 7.8Ah 281Wh battery allow you to reach 60 kilometers of autonomy and a maximum speed of 25 km / h. The bike bag included as standard protects the eBike during transport.
It is the turn of the Lancia Ypsilon Incanto and the Lancia Estro, which reflect the classic style of women’s and men’s bikes, with iconic and timeless lines, re-proposing it in a new electric version. The bikes are equipped with a 36V 250W Bafang motor and a 36V 10.4Ah 374Wh battery, to travel up to 70 km on a single charge.
