  • MAHLE expands its holistic systems competence

“The global market for pedelecs will continue to grow rapidly. Our aim is to expand our activities further in this area and establish ourselves as a systems provider,” says Dr. Jörg Stratmann, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of the MAHLE Group. With around 30 employees at its location in Palencia, ebikemotion® Technologies S.L. has comprehensive know-how of systems and components as well as proven competence in connectivity. In combination with MAHLE’s expertise in the area of drive units and industrialization, this will make MAHLE a systems provider for pedelec drives.

The strength of ebikemotion® is the use of compact and lightweight rear wheel hub motors, batteries, electronic control units, and other pedelec components that can be integrated unobtrusively into the bicycle. The hardware is supplemented by an integrated connectivity solution featuring mobile and web-based apps. The ebikemotion® system is particularly suitable for use in lightweight racing bikes, gravel bikes, and city bikes. ebikemotion® is a “hidden champion” in this sector and has already attracted a number of well-known customers.

“A pleasant cycling experience combined with a powerful drive and high connectivity make a good pedelec, and these factors are crucial if we want to be successful on the market,” states Wilhelm Emperhoff, Member of the Management Board and responsible for the Filtration and Engine Peripherals business unit as well as the Mechatronics division at MAHLE. “We are confident in the technology of ebikemotion® and are now looking forward to working even more closely with our new colleagues in this market.”
