I didn’t know you can get e-bike from Jeep … but now you can for a measly USD $5,899.
Taken from Electrek … Jeep is the latest car company trying to cash in on booming electric bicycle sales by bringing a Jeep e-bike to market. The company has just announced that pre-orders are going live today for the Jeep electric bicycle. But wait until you see the price.
Jeep is asking for a whopping $5,899 for its fat tire, all-terrain electric bicycle.
Of course the Jeep electric bicycle is a lot more e-bike than most others, to be fair.
Marketed under a partnership with North American company QuietKat, the Jeep e-bike puts out an astounding 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of torque, thanks to its massively powerful Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor.
That motor is well known to put out over 1.5kW of power, though QuietKat and Jeep market the e-bike as providing 750W of power. They could be detuning the motor, or more likely using a lower figure to avoid running afoul of e-bike regulations in many US states that limit power to 750W.
