Basic questions about AureusDrive
The terms e-bike, pedelec or s-pedelec are often written, but what exactly is the difference?
E-bike is the umbrella term for a bicycle that incorporates an electric motor to assist muscle power. Pedelec is a category of an e-bike and assists the rider up to a speed of 25 km/h. The S-pedelec category supports the rider at speeds of up to 45 km/h. More about the difference pedelec or S-pedelec.
Enjoy the airstream at 45 kmh while reducing CO2. An e-bike needs 0.5 kWh of energy for 30 km, whereas a diesel vehicle needs 15 kWh for the same distance. That’s a factor of 30 less energy!
On average, commuters emit 0.8 tons of CO2 per year by car – equivalent to 10% of CO2 per capita emissions according to the production principle. If 50% of commuters switch from cars to e-bikes, Switzerland’s CO2 emissions from transport will be reduced by 15% – 2.5 million tons – with an increase in quality of life, more exercise, better health and figure and business-friendly.

- AureusDrive relies on proven and robust technology for its components. In order to offer our customers the best price-performance ratio, the components were also selected according to this principle.
- We distribute our e-bikes ourselves without intermediaries. This allows us to offer our customers a lower price than our competitors.
- We deliberately dispensed with additional features such as Bluetooth communication, 24-speed gears or GPS tracking. Our g45c is simply e-bike.
