LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hangzhou, China-based innovation company Hangzhou Yunmake Technology Co., Ltd. started displaying its concept electric bicycle, the Yunma EVELO, at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas at 8:30 am local time on January 6th. The concept bike, ideal for young urban professionals, is the first e-bike exhibited by a Chinese company at CES.
Hangzhou Yunmake Technology CEO Qiu Yiwu said, "The Yunma EVELO, an e-bike that will provide a convenient mode of transportation on crowded city streets, is positioned as a travel tool of choice for modern young professionals."
The new two-wheeled concept vehicle was designed based on the needs of the target rider. The manufacturer relocated the e-bike's switch to the lateral side of the handlebar, a design change that differs from that of traditional e-bikes, making the two-wheeler distinctively easier to ride. The switch to alternate between mechanical riding mode and e-mode has been placed on a handlebar, allowing users to shift back and forth using one hand.
The Yunma EVELO can be accessed using the Zhixingche app, through which the vehicle can be remotely locked and unlocked as well as located. In addition, the app can be used to locate the nearest recharging stations as well as provide remote performance monitoring. The Yunma EVELO comes equipped with several jacks allowing the plugging in of a wide range of digital devices, adding further convenience when travelling in urban areas.
Further information about the features of the Yunma EVELO will be released at a later time, as the product is not yet commercially available.
Yunmake is an open-minded international company that invites cooperation with others and adopts the Design-Driven Innovation concept as the cornerstone of its corporate philosophy.
Yunmake revealed that Propeller Design AB, a strategy design company based in Stockholm, Sweden, played an irreplaceable role during the design of the Yunma EVELO concept bike. It is for this reason that the overall appearance and functional design of Yunma EVELO reflects an obvious Scandinavian minimalist style.
Yet, the actual riding experience demonstrates that the minimalist design style does not compromise the functionality of the Yunma EVELO. The bike features both a slim appearance and a wide range of available features, much in line with the minimalist style that arose in the 1930s in the design of furniture, buildings and factories across Northern Europe.
Overall, the e-bike merges functionality with aesthetics, a combination that is likely to appeal to today's young urban professionals.
Mr. Qiu added, "The Yunma EVELO is the result of Yunmake Technology's efforts to promote multinational cooperation in industrial design and provide a better experience for today's modern youth in cities across China."
