March 21, 2011 - The Swiss Stromer E:Bike was the star of the show. It ended up in winning three product categories out of nine, namely the categories Sport, Wellness and Business. With this performance, the Stromer proved itself to be the optimal, high-end speedster, for e-vehicle riders which love speed and power, both on ordinary working days and on holidays.
The product categories represent the different demands consumers have for e-vehicles, or the different ways they use their pedelecs. ExtraEnergy identified the categories after 18 years of practical experience in the LEV sector. The categories were formalized in 2010, when ExtraEnergy unveiled beautiful trophies for the category winners. Since then, the sector has gradually warmed to the categories as identified by ExtraEnergy, as can be witnessed, for instance, in Winora's new e-bike range. Segmenting the sector in different product categories is a reply to the proliferation of e-vehicle products on the market and shows the vastness of the opportunities awaiting electric technology in future. ExtraEnergy believes these categories will help clients in their buying decisions and hopes they will spur the industry to excellence.
