Xiaomi has unveiled its first ever electric bicycle at an event in China. Named as Qicycle Electric Folding Bike, it is likely to cost Rs 30,000.
The 7 Kg Qicycle is made of carbon fibre and packs a host of sensors. The Qicycle is foldable to be kept in cars without it taking up a lot of space.
Designed as an electric folding bike, Qicycle comes with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. The Qicycle is backed by a 250W 36V electric motor and it uses Torque Measurement Method (TMM) to assist the rider’s pedal-power.
Xiaomi revealed that the Qicycle can be paddled with the aid of Shimano Gear Shifters even after the bicycle runs out of battery. It comes with the features of measuring calories burned, distance traveled, and traveling speed.
