The four-wheel e-bike is technologically adapted for all-weather conditions. It has a photovoltaic system provided by In-Lab located on the roof which ensures recharging of traction batteries and supplies the vehicle's control electronics.
The e-bike is not registered as a car, so it can be legally used also on bicycle lanes.
