Dott’s E-Bikes Have Now Launched Onto The Streets of Paris.
Dott‘s e-bikes provide(s) a simple, enjoyable, + comfortable way to travel across cities efficiently. Their e-bikes have now launched onto the streets of Paris.
Dott is a European micro-mobility start-up that was Founded in 2019, by Henri Moissinac and Maxim Romain in January 2019: they operate over 40,000 e-scooters in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, and in the UK. They’ve won two of the biggest micro-mobility tenders in the world (in Paris and in London), and they employ 350+ staff, with teams located in Amsterdam, London, and Paris.
By the end of this year (2021), 3,000 e-bikes will be in operation in Paris, providing a new way to get around, – making it easier for people to choose the type of environmentally-friendly travel that’s best for them through a simple app. The distinctive design is fitted with lights, reflectors, and a basket, and the bikes have been created to provide a safe, comfortable journey that’s “an improvement” on the traditional bike.
Following the recent launch of their e-bikes in Paris, the bikes will also soon be available in Rome, Milan, Brussels, and in London, too, – encouraging more people to switch to sustainable travel.
Maxim Romain, Dott’s COO and Co-Founder, said: “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. With more options on how to travel, we hope to encourage more people to travel in an environmentally-friendly way, – helping our streets to become less congested, and a more pleasant place to be.”
With speeds of up to 25kph, Dott’s e-bikes make(s) for an efficient transport choice. Parking is permitted in the mixed micro-mobility spots for e-bikes and e-scooters, and in over 6,300 public bike racks. Competitive e-bike pricing is equal to Dott’s e-scooters, and passes are also available to reduce costs for regular riders: they can be combined across both types of transport, through the app.
The vehicles are built to last, and they’re repaired where necessary: any parts that cannot be reused are recycled.
