During the exhibition, Rheinmetall car also made its world debut an electric bicycle drivetrain for its startups Amprio. It is understood, Amprio as operating system supplier has developed its own dedicated driving unit, includes a battery pack and peripheral devices (a display, connected to the rider and control interface), all of which are modularly arranged, bicycle manufacturers to meet the demand. Horst Binnig said: “The first city to resolve the last kilometer of the city or the travel needs of the future will give us huge business opportunities, with Amprio, our Group is rapidly expanding into the electric assist bicycle market.” Although the future of new energy vehicles proportion It must be increased, but equally undeniable that the traditional diesel model in the longer term there will continue to be the market mainstream, traditional type of diesel energy saving there is also a lot of space. In this context, Rheinmetall Automotive continues roots in traditional internal combustion engineAutomotive products.
