NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helbiz (NASDAQ; HLBZ), a global leader in micro-mobility, today announced that it will be opening operations in Orlando, FL this month.
The company will launch with its newest e-bike model, featuring the latest GPS technology, which identifies no-ride zones and automatically slows riders down in designated areas. The lightweight model is equipped with a Shimano 3-speed hub for better energy efficiency and an enclosed front basket with a phone holder to protect small items while riding. The permit granted is for up to 400 e-bikes.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our newest e-bike model in Orlando, further expanding our presence in Florida,” said Salvatore Palella, CEO of Helbiz. “These lightweight bikes are a great, safe addition to our micro-mobility fleet. As temperatures rise this summer, we’ve already seen great adoption with our e-bikes across several markets as users look for transportation alternatives that can give them a little boost.”
The e-bikes will be available starting mid-July in Downtown Orlando. Riders can unlock the e-bikes for $1 and then 39 cents per minute. Helbiz provides free helmets for riders to order at Helbiz.com/safety and for pick up at local businesses, including Drunken Monkey Coffee.
