CONSUMER AWARD 21


The Ellio Elite is a Belgian speed pedelec that stands out from the competition due to its intuitive riding experience, durable and maintenance-friendly construction and large battery capacity.

The company IntuEdrive wants to appeal to commuters used to taking the car and aims to offer them a worthy alternative for the daily commute to and from the city. The company has applied a considerable array of technology, derived from the automotive industry. This team of experts has combined the pleasure of cycling with the safety and convenience of driving.

Thanks to their background in the automotive sector, the founders developed a patented CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) drive, equipping the e-bike with fully automatic transmission. The cyclist will recognise this automatic transmission from the Park and Drive positions of a car’s automatic gearbox. He or she will also appreciate the all-wheel drive and advanced safety systems from the modern car (traction control, ESP, etc.). The revolutionary power train of the Ellio demonstrates how automotive technology can be a new standard for e-bikes. The intuitive character of the Ellio will reduce the apprehension many motorists experience with regard to speed pedelecs. Ellio Elite can be considered as a genuine replacement for the car.

The e-bike is also produced locally. Thanks to social employment, the Ellio combines craftsmanship and quality, such as an eye for detail, with the socio-economic benefits of local production.
