The MoDe:Pro is an example of how competition can foster greatness. This futuristic e-bike is the result of a competition run among Ford's employees, who were challenged to come up with e-bike designs that could make connected journeys safer, healthier, more efficient and of course less stressful.
This bike is equipped with a 200 Watt motor with a 9 Ah battery. The addition of electric pedal assist means that riders are capable of hitting speeds up to 25 km/h.
The MoDe:Pro is clearly designed keeping in mind the needs of urban commuters. Therefore, it can conveniently be folded up to take on public transport. The e-bike also comes with a companion app that can be used to find bike-friendly directions.
Blending an eco-friendly ride system, portability and mobile compatibility, the MoDe:Pro represents the future of sustainable urban biking.
