Automaker General Motors announced that it is launching its first electric bicycles in Europe, beginning in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. GM designed the bikes in their new Urban Mobility Division in Oshawa, Ontario. They’ve been working on the bikes since 2015 when GM’s CEO Mary Barra said in a press conference that a concept e-bike would be “designed to help people stay mobile in an increasingly difficult-to-navigate urban landscape.” They designed the bikes and the motors in-house. The two bikes, under the ARĪV brand, include the Meld, a compact e-bike and the Merge, a folding e-bike. The cringeworthy names came about via a crowdfunding campaign the company ran last year. They will be available for preorder in the Spring of 2019, via online retailer Bike Exchange. Delivery is expected in the 2nd quarter of 2019. The Merge will retail for €3,400 and the Meld will run €2,800. The post GM Unveils Their New ARIV Electric Bikes appeared first on Electric Bike Action.
