Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the Folding Electric Pro takes four hours to charge and is pitched by Zinc as a “regular commuter” aimed at “widening the audience for e-bikes to a younger audience”.
Zinc’s new model comes with three riding modes, including a walking mode for more leisurely environments.
Commenting on the launch of the new model, Zinc’s chief operating officer, Chirag Shah said: “The Zinc Folding Electric Eco Pro bike is designed for the practicality of commuting around a city and it can be taken easily on public transport and folded down easily to store at home or at the office.”
