Lime Launches Gen4 e-Bike in Washington DC

Lime has debuted the Gen4 e-bike, which features an interchangeable battery to improve each vehicle’s reliability and lifespan. The Gen4 e-bike also offers two-speed transmission, improved acceleration, and a phone holder to enhance the rider experience.

The Gen4 e-bike has now officially launched in Washington DC, following small-scale pilots across the US in 2021.

Along with Lime’s fleet of Gen4 e-scooters, the Gen4 e-bike aims to enhance the future of shared micromobility. The swappable battery is interchangable between the e-bike and the e-scooter and is expected to significantly enhance the efficiency of Lime’s operations.

Lime are now able to replace dead batteries on any Gen4 e-bike or e-scooter without the need to transport heavy vehicles with multiple van trips. This change therefore reduces carbon emissions and improves vehicle availability for riders.

Wayne Ting, CEO of Lime, said:

“The launch of our Gen4 e-bike is an important step towards achieving our mission of building a future where transportation is shared, affordable and carbon-free. Standardising our swappable batteries across modes is a leap forward for Lime and the broader micromobility industry, making operations more efficient and sustainable, while also improving reliability for riders.”

Additional upgrades to Lime’s Gen4 e-bike include an increased motor power, a phone holder to allow riders to easily navigate and follow directions, a new handlebar display, an automatic two-speed transmission that eliminates gears, and a modular design that extends the bike’s usable life to five years.

Lime invested 50 million USD in the Gen4 e-bike and plans to continue expanding their operations across the US in 2022, with plans to launch them in Atlanta and Charleston by the spring.

Wayne added:

“In 2021, we saw massive jumps in Lime e-bike use in cities, helping to fuel a welcome e-bike boom globally. We’re excited for city residents around the world to try the Gen4 as a great way to leave the car behind.”
