Like many other automakers, the upscale German brand Porsche is now expanding its e-mobility offerings with two first serial-produced e-bikes. Once again, industry expert and Rotwild maker ADP Engineering was on hand as a development partner. Both e-bike models are being launched under the “Porsche E-Mobility, Extended” umbrella and are designed to “reflect the fascination of the Porsche brand in terms of design and technology.” The organically shaped carbon frame is said to be reminiscent of the roofline of the Porsche Taycan e-car. As a result, Porsche’s first production e-bikes were also on display at the debut presentation of the new car. To take the e-bikes with them on their travels, Porsche has developed a special rear rack for its new (second) all-electric Taycan Cross Turismo car model. Thanks to the long wheel rails and a high payload of 50 kilograms, up to two e-bikes can be transported with it. In addition, the car’s tailgate can be opened even when the rear carrier is loaded. The rear carrier can be optionally upgraded with an additional rail for a third bike.
The two new Porsche e-bike models will be available in the three frame sizes from spring 2021 – both in Porsche Centers and online as well as from selected specialist bicycle retailers. The recommended retail price is €9,990 for the eBike Sport and €7,990 for the eBike Cross.
