Shared micromobility operator Dott launched its brand new e-bike on Tuesday, with the vehicles now available for hire in Paris.
The firm, which also operates a shared e-scooter scheme in the city, plans to deploy 3,000 e-bikes by the end of the year.
Priced at a similar rate to its e-scooters, Dott e-bikes can be parked at any of the 6,300 public bike racks situated around Paris.
In addition to the French capital, Dott is preparing to launch its e-bikes in Rome, Milan, Brussels and London.
Overall, the firm hopes to make 10,000 e-bikes available for hire across Europe by the end of the year.
Fitted with lights, reflectors and a basket, the blue e-bikes are able to reach speeds of up to 25kph and can be hired via the Dott app.
“We are committed to freeing our cities with clean rides for everyone, and the launch of our e-bike marks an evolution of our business,” said Maxim Romain, COO and Co-Founder at Dott.
“With more options for how to travel, we hope to encourage more people to choose to get around in an environmentally friendly way, helping our streets become less congested and more pleasant places to be.”
Dott currently operates over 40,000 e-scooters in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, and the UK.
