Dott has announced the launch of its e-bike services in the Netherlands where the micromobility operator is headquartered.
A fleet of 150 e-bikes are now available in the eastern city of Amersfoort.
In the coming weeks, Dott will also be introducing 200 shared e-bikes in the eastern city of Enschede.
They cost €0.25 per minute with no unlock fee. Regular riders can take out a one month pass for €34.99 (100 rides).
With speeds up to 25 km/h, the e-bikes come fitted with lights, reflectors, a mounted basket, 26-inch wheels and have a claimed 60 km range.
Sven Jaspers, Netherlands General Manager at Dott, said: “Our e-bikes offer a great way for people to travel around their cities sustainably. They can help free our cities from the congestion of unused vehicles, and free riders of the hassle of owning their own vehicle. With Dott handling the purchase cost, maintenance, punctures and service, riders are free to enjoy the journey and get on with their day.”
In line with Dutch regulations, parking zones will be set up across both cities. Dott has identified suitable bike racks which can be used to park the e-bikes.
The launch in the Netherlands follows the company’s expansion into Madrid on 30 March.
Last month, we spoke with Dott’s Sustainability Manager Laura Hensel and the Founder of battery maker Gouach about their new partnership to extend a battery pack’s “first life”.
