Veo Unveils First Dual-Passenger e-Bike

Veo has launched the industry’s first dual-passenger electric micromobility vehicle, the Apollo Class II e-bike.

The Apollo can safely carry two riders or can be adapted to provide riders with additional cargo storage. The vehicle will be available in select markets in early 2023.

Candice Xie, Co-founder and CEO of Veo, said:

“As the micromobility industry continues to grow, we must expand our vehicle offerings to address unmet market demands. The Apollo was developed in direct response to insights from rider surveys, feedback from municipalities, and global research that indicates the immense need for safe tandem riding and cargo hauling. By opening up micromobility to new riders and new trip types, we can reduce car dependency and help cities advance their ambitious climate goals.”

The Apollo features a throttle-assist motor to enable riders to easily travel uphill.

This power boost encourages people of all fitness levels to choose to travel by bike. Indeed, Veo’s ridership data shows that its first throttle-assist e-bike, the Cosmo-e, has four times as many riders per day compared to Veo’s electric pedal-assist bikes.

When the throttle is used, the vehicle will notify pedestrians that an e-bike is approaching with an audible noise.

Edwin Tan, Veo Co-founder and President said:

“If we want to get more people out of cars and into the bike lane, micromobility must accommodate rider needs for varying trip types and purposes. A second seat and cargo-hauling capabilities make the transition to micromobility realistic for more people.”

The Apollo features a 750-watt motor and 20-inch tyres. It has a maximum load of 400lbs and can travel up to  15mph with a 45-mile battery range.

The e-bike is also equipped with a light-up display that communicates information such as its battery level and speed.

In addition, the Apollo has an integrated phone holder and a Bluetooth speaker for safe navigation. The on-board speakers also use geofencing technology to inform riders of the local regulations.
