The Bio-Hybrid represents a new concept of personal, emission-free mobility in an urban habitat. With its width of less than 90 centimeters and zero-emission 250-watt electric drive system the Bio-Hybrid is allowed to travel on normal bike paths like a pedelec and requires a third of the parking space of an automobile. It may be operated without a driver’s license and closes the mobility gap between bicycles and cars. The battery capacity is around 1.2 kWh, however a second battery can double the capacity to 2.4 kWh. With this second battery, a range of around 100 kilometers is achievable. In its two versions, Passenger (exhibition vehicle in the “Let’s be smart - Smart Village” Hall 4.2) and Cargo, it serves the personal mobility needs of people and goods in the connected city of the future: for the frequently mentioned “last mile” as well as for longer inner-urban distances. Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and 4G make the Bio-Hybrid an important element of the digital and connected city. In modern city neighborhoods, new forms of mobility, such as the Bio-Hybrid, have already become an elementary part of the infrastructure concept. “Schaeffler Bio-Hybrid GmbH”, a startup company founded in 2017, is currently developing the Bio-Hybrid ready for series production. The series launch is planned for the end of 2020.
