Bolt launches electric bikes in Paris

July 01, 2020


Introducing the newest member of the Bolt family of four and two-wheeled vehicles. Starting from today, all Parisian urban commuters will have the opportunity to get from A to B on a Bolt electric bike!

Bonjour, Paris!

Over the last few years, the Council of Paris has been developing a wide-ranging programme of green initiatives. A major element of which has been the focus on developing a more modern urban transportation system, introducing cycle paths at all major hotspots around the city.

This highly innovative, big-picture plan working toward a greener future for all Parisians is inspiring and made the selection of Paris as the launch-city of our brand new product — the Bolt e-bike — an absolute no-brainer.

We’re proud to now be an even bigger part of Paris’ green revolution, adding the electric bike option to our already 100% carbon-neutral selection of ride-hailing vehicles.

Bolt e-bike specs

Looking for the specifics? Here are the all-important specs:

  • Being mostly built from easily recyclable materials like aluminium, steel and plastic, Bolt’s electric bicycles are environmentally friendly.
  • The maximum motor-assisted speed is 25 km/h.
  • The Bolt e-bike has a range of up to 65 km on a single charge.
  • Bolt e-bikes are disinfected on a regular basis.
  • The streets of Paris will eventually have 1,000 Bolt e-bikes available for rental.

As mentioned, all of Bolt’s electric bikes are limited to a speed of 25 km/h. We also recommend that you bring and wear a helmet for your own safety.

If you don’t feel 100% confident on an e-bike yet, you can start off with Beginner Mode, part of our Safety Toolkit, designed to help you learn to ride safely. Before hopping on the bike, please pay attention to the recommendations in the app.
