Battery capacity and charging

Frikar e-bike uses series hybrid propulsion with no direct mechanical linkage between pedals and wheels. All energy transfer from the rider to the wheels is done via electric wires. The vehicle uses one 250W motor for electric assist, and one 250W motor for series hybrid propulsion. The charging time for the battery depends on the capacity, and which charger you use. The base model comes with a 190 W charger and a battery with 877 Wh capacity. Those will charge a fully depleted system in around five hours, and from 20% to 80% SOC in about three hours. Then you can beef up the system with our fast 8A charger that accelerate charging by four, bringing 20% to 80% charge time down to approx. 45 minutes. We will offer single 100 Wh battery modules that extend the battery capacity. Currently, we plan to provide space to fit up to 15 modules in total, with up to 300 km range.

Battery is removable so that charging can be performed independent of vehicle. That is quite important for cyclist who ride in very cold weather or lack charging possibilities where the Frikar ebike is parked. We continuously work on getting the best possible all-year battery suitable for our Frikar four-wheeled e-bike.
