Summary Light eMobility

The metropolises of this world exert a powerful magnetic attraction. People stream to them from all corners of the globe to live, work, and enjoy the city lifestyle. But as populations grow, so too does the urban landscape, with clogged roads, high noise levels, and poor air quality. Urban mobility today faces great challenges, and electromobility is one of the ways to counter them.

Electric two-wheelers with Bosch technology are already making inroads today; in addition to their quiet operation and lower consumption of resources, they delight users with the dynamic enjoyment of riding them. Bosch is rigorously driving forward the electrification of the powertrain in two-wheeled vehicles, bringing about a lasting change in urban life.

Starting with drives for e-bikes in 2010, Bosch has grown to be the market leader in this segment in Europe today. The segment is supplemented by emission-free powertrain solutions for e-scooters that can weave through city traffic flexibly and fast on two wheels. The 48-volt central drive system provides powerful drive for vehicles with an output of up to 20 kW and is easily scalable by the addition of battery packs. The electric system with an in-hub motor, developed with a close eye on the Asian market, offers a low-cost entry into electrification. Both systems ensure a thrilling riding experience with their advanced technology and user-friendly operation.



Narrow lanes, congested streets, and a shortage of parking spaces do not present any obstacles for maneuverable two-wheelers with an e-powertrain.
