Veo Apollo dual passenger electric bike launches with 750 W throttle assist motor
The Veo Apollo is a new dual-passenger electric vehicle, which the company claims is an industry first. The class two e-bike can support payloads up to 400 lbs (~181 kg), allowing you to carry an extra passenger or groceries. The Apollo has a 750 W throttle assist motor, helping you up to 16 mph (~25 kph), which you can use with or without your pedalling power.
The bicycle uses simulated engine noise when you engage the throttle to ensure pedestrians can hear you. Swappable batteries are used on the bike, providing up to 45 miles (~72 km) assistance range on a single charge; these batteries are also compatible with other vehicles in the Veo line-up. A light-up screen shows information such as your speed and the bike's battery charge level, and there is a built-in phone mount. The display system is also used to display turn signals.
You can connect wireless headphones to the vehicle via Bluetooth to clearly hear music or journey directions. Plus, you can use Veo Voice to read out local micromobility regulations to keep yourself and others safe when riding. The new Veo Apollo bicycle was shown at Micromobility America and is set to launch early next year. It is currently unclear how much the Apollo Veo will cost and in which "select markets" it will be available.
