Ultra Motor’s A2B Electric Bike Debuts

Published September 24, 2008

LAS VEGAS, NV (BRAIN)—Besides introducing its A2BTM electric bike yesterday to bike dealers at Interbike, Ultra Motor also announced results of its first annual Smart Transport Survey.

The results indicate that Americans are ready to embrace alternative transportation methods and demonstrates why the A2B is an ideal alternative for urban commuters.

Overall, 80 percent of respondents said they think alternative transportation methods such as electric bikes, smart cars and hybrids are the way of the future. When asked about the main source of future transportation energy, nearly one-third of all respondents believe electricity will be the key energy source that people will rely on for their transportation needs in the next 10 years.

This suggests ample market opportunities for electric bicycles such as the A2B, which uses standard household current to recharge its battery just as a cell phone or laptop.

“Alternative transportation offers many clear benefits and it is evident that people are ready for change,” said Chris Deyo, chief executive officer of Ultra Motor USA. “Whether they’re headed to the office, college campus or running errands around town, commuters will find that our A2B electric bikes will fill their transportation needs without emptying their wallet at the gas pump.”
