Since committing to an all-electric future, General Motors is developing revolutionary, flexible electrification technologies that will enable its creative team to dream beyond the traditional vehicle and give the customers the freedom of movement that they seek.
Today GM brought one of those dreams to life when they revealed two innovative, integrated and connected eBikes – one folding and one compact – without a brand.
GM want customers to be involved from the start, so the automaker is asking enthusiasts from around the globe to help name our eBike brand using eBikeBrandChallenge.com. The challenge participant responsible for the selected eBike brand name will receive $10,000 and nine other participants responsible for runner-up submissions will each receive $1,000.
“As an avid cyclist and urban commuter, I know how great it feels to get where I’m going easily and to show up sweat-free,” said Hannah Parish, director of General Motors Urban Mobility Solutions. “We blended electrification engineering know-how, design talents and automotive-grade testing with great minds from the bike industry to create our eBikes. Now we want to expand our thinking beyond the company walls and hear from people who like to move and have rad ideas.”
Today through 10 a.m. EST Monday, Nov. 26, consumers can visit eBikeBrandChallenge.com to submit their ideas.
Want in? Here’s what GM is looking for:
– Simple, smart and bold concepts capable of bringing the eBike brand to life.
– Fun ideas capable of being understood around the world.
