Hamburg, Germany – September 5, 2023: Wunder Mobility, the leading provider of developer-friendly software and hardware for shared mobility operators, has engaged in a strategic partnership with Velocity Mobility, a mobility solutions provider specializing in fully automated sharing systems for cities and businesses, resulting in the supply of 1,000 e-bikes from early 2024. Through enhancements to the electrical wiring, the e-bike's battery, and the battery management system, the jointly developed e-bike by Wunder Mobility and Yadea seamlessly integrates with Velocity Mobility's state-of-the-art docking stations.

The future of e-bikes 

As an environmentally friendly mode of transport, bike-sharing has become one of the preferred sharing vehicles around the world, especially in Europe and Asia. During and after the COVID-19 pandemic, spurred on by booming consumer demand, many city authorities have increased their efforts to make their cities more bike-friendly. Initiatives include pop-up lanes and new cycleways. Political commitments to a transition to the Green Economy continue to drive investment in cycling infrastructure. In Germany, the bike-sharing market is expected to grow around 28% between 2022 and 2027, reaching 86 million USD in revenue. Wunder Mobility and Velocity Mobility have capitalized on this momentum and are now working together to put more e-bikes on the streets.  

Working with Velocity Mobility to create a top-class e-bike compatible with docking stations

Market-leading software provider Wunder Mobility has more than ten years of experience working with clients in mobility to accelerate shared mobility companies by providing a flexible and highly stable software platform to connect vehicles and manage operations. In late 2022, Wunder Mobility launched their first co-developed e-bike, a vehicle with an above-average range of 100 km, a dual security system and a swappable battery suitable for free-floating fleets. These e-bikes are made in collaboration with Yadea, the world’s largest manufacturer of electric two-wheel vehicles. 

In their most recent collaboration, Wunder Mobility is taking another significant step forward. Given that Velocity Mobility offers both station-based and free-floating sharing systems, Wunder Mobility's new e-bike has now been adapted to work with and for Velocity Mobility’s customers. Wunder Mobility took the initiative to make this happen and has worked hard with Yadea to adapt their e-bikes to docking stations by adding different wiring and external charging support. This strategic adaptation now enables Velocity Mobility to receive an anticipated shipment of up to 1000 e-bikes from Wunder Mobility in 2024, further augmenting the flexibility and choices available to Velocity Mobility's customers.

The new compatibility for e-bikes with docking stations is a great achievement for Wunder Mobility, because they can now cater to a wider array of operators, especially those that are already well-established and using docking stations. With increased micromobility hubs growing near metro and train stations, more and more mobility operators are interested in having fleets of e-bikes that are compatible with docking-stations.

Leading the way with IoT Middleware

Velocity Mobility stated that one of the biggest reasons for committing to Wunder Mobility’s new e-bike is the seamless connection between the vehicles and Velocity Mobility’s software via Wunder Mobility’s API-based IoT middleware. It efficiently manages data collection, distribution, and translation, while also allowing easy configuration of device behavior and providing valuable insights for troubleshooting and optimization. This streamlining ensures convenience and effectiveness for Velocity Mobility’s operations.

“The extensive market research, analysis and design development behind this e-bike has deepened our close collaboration with the team at Wunder Mobility. A market-dominating high range, low weight and uncomplicated maintenance sets new standards and complements the product portfolio of environmentally friendly urban mobility solutions”, added Dennis Brinckmann, Co-Founder & Managing Director at Velocity Mobility. “We are convinced that this bike with its intuitive operating concept and an appealing design can optimally meet the demands of our core user groups”, he concluded.

“Cycling is one of the key solutions for reducing mobility emissions. Through our collaboration we have produced a better performing e-bike for both the operator and the cyclist. This will play a vital role in helping cities and their citizens to achieve green goals and boost wellbeing through exercise”, said Gunnar Froh, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Wunder Mobility. “Superior range, weight and security coupled to our powerful platform will enable more short city journeys and cleaner and healthier longer distance urban travel”, he continued.
