It would be if it weren’t marketed to the mobile urbanite who prefers an easy commute. Though the vehicle’s conspicuous Swiss emblem and design hints at the classic Army knife multi-tool, it’s 100% pure Voltitude.
According to its makers, the Voltitude is the culmination of an idea and a dream. Part of that dream was a debut at the Geneva Motor Show, where it already scored its first orders from select Swiss buyers. Here’s what it says on the product page:
“We are proud to introduce our revolutionary folding electric bike, result of nearly 5 years of development and 13 international patents. Featuring our amazing EasyFold™ system, the Voltitude bike can be folded and unfolded in exactly one second which makes it by far the world’s easiest and quickest folding system. Its latest generation motor and battery module provides up to 30 kms of fun and effortless riding. And it’s so beautifully designed that you will want to keep it near you at all times.”
The genius of the Voltitude is it’s an e-bike that could be folded and rolled into the office. Unfortunately, it isn’t available yet in retail outlets, much less outside Switzerland. In fact, Voltitude the company are actively seeking investors and entrepreneurs at the moment.
