CityQis a Nordic light electric vehicle for bad weather and urban mobility in car free areas. They are creating a platform for the first car-e-bike – an e-bike with car capability, technology and design, but still regulated as e-bike. CityQ functions as an electric bicycle, with pedal assistance but additionally offers weather protection, 4 wheels, capacity for 3 people plus luggage and a solar panel. It is prepared for high end pools and multi-vehicle share riding in Northern Europe. The vehicle further includes app for booking, track and charging, as well as connectivity.
CityQ was established by the end of 2016 to make year-around cycling more convenient to help cities and urban citizens transfer into car free mobility. And with Covid-19 – this has become even more urgent. As most cities are imposing restrictions upon car traffic and car parking, more urban corporates and citizens turn to cycling and car free mobility. However, in bad weather, 70% skips cycling and in Scandinavia and Northern Europe there are annually 239 days with rain and frost.
By 2020 CityQ has developed second prototype of CityQ which has been acknowledged internationally and have hundreds of potentially customers signed up – and interest from distribution partners all over the world. The innovating technology includes patenting chassis and an IT platform that, like a Tesla, replaces mechanical parts with software and connectivity.
