When Nicolas Muron was visiting his grandparents in the French Alps hamlet of Saint-Nicolas-de-Véroce in 2015, the concept for MoonBikes began to take shape in his head.
He makes a simple remark that winter: whereas there are several options for transportation in the summer, there are only three options in the winter: vehicles, snowmobiles, or walking. Nicolas, a tech and mountain enthusiast, resolves to find a solution.
Snowy terrain may be navigated in a variety of ways, but not many of them include electric power. One of their amazing creations is Moonbike, a lightweight electric snow bike designed for exploration.
A 3 kW continuous power motor, a front ski, and a rear track drive are all included in the new bike. This enables the Moonbike to reach its peak speed of about 42 km/h. To increase the range to between 1.5 hours and 3 hours of riding, the bike may accommodate one or two 2-kWh batteries.
Currently Moonbike is offering a black version of the snowmobile that will be limited to 100 units. The base version has a price tag of 8,900 euros.
