Comments Off on Daimler Goes Smaller Than the Smart Car with Its Smart E-Bike

You would have thought Daimler had learned it wasn’t terribly good at making small cars after its Smart car turned out to have disappointing gas mileage, disappointing build quality–well, disappointing everything–but now it is going even smaller with the Smart E-Bike pictured here. Why is an automaker getting into the electronic bike market? Because the market is blowing up right now, with a three-fold increase in Daimler’s home market of Germany in 2010 of 200,000 units up from 70,000 in 2007. And across Europe, the electronic bike market has exploded from 200,000 units in 2007 to 500,000 in 2009 and 700,000 in 2010. So, welcome to the party, Smart . And there is some hope for Daimler here.
