AureusDrive develops, designs, conceptualises, configures and assembles e-bike systems with a focus on the commuter. As they celebrate 5 years in business of ecological mobility, the Swiss e-bike brand recently shared a couple throwback photos from their early days of development.

The update detailed how almost exactly five years ago, Gabriel Barroso and Sergio Tresch founded AureusDrive GmbH. The first prototypes were built and tested a little more than 5.5 years ago, and as seen in the photo below, the first prototype with a rear wheel hub motor was still painted by hand. Later, the first two Classic prototypes were picked up from Rhenus in Basel with a Peugeot Partner. At that time the model was still called g45c, as seen in the lower picture.

The brand wrote: “We look back on an exciting time and are happy to have put around 2,000 e-bikes on Swiss roads and thus make a contribution to more ecological mobility.”

E-bikes from AureusDrive’s new 2023 Classic and Comfort series are now available for ordering. New orange and mint colorways feature for the season, along with some technical improvements.
