Brompton has announced the launch of a new Electric addition to its P Line of folding bicycles, featuring a new 4-speed drivetrain and the P Line titanium Advanced Rear Frame.
The P Line will be the first of its electric bikes to utilise the new 4-speed drivetrain, giving riders more options for terrain choice. Brompton Bicycle CEO, Will Butler-Adams spoke of his excitement about the launch.
“We are thrilled to be launching the Brompton Electric P Line today. This is the most compact folding electric bike on the market – and the culmination of years of research and development.”
Weighing in at 15.6kg with the removable battery pack (12.7kg without), it is certainly among the lighter end of the folding bike scale. To make it even easier to move around, there is the option of adding the Brompton engineered Roller Rack, a four-wheeled rack that helps to turn the P Line into an easy-to-roll bike.
The hub motor remains the same as the other electric bikes in their range, a custom-made 250 kWh system designed by Williams Advanced Engineering. This comes with a max assistance speed of 25km and a range of up to 70km.
The bike will be available in two colours, Storm Grey and Midnight Black, and mid or high handlebars. Prices will start from £3695 for the Urban edition and £3775 for the Urban with roller frame.
