GenZe Gives E-Bike Fleet Purpose-Built IoT Technology To Track Everything

The North America Mahindra group is already finding ways to deliver on the GenZe connected electric bikes (ebikes) and electric escooter (escooter) platform. It announced its GenZe Fleet e-Bike – the world’s only electric bicycle that is purpose-built for fleets with IoT technology, to help independent operators manage, launch, and maintain a rental, corporate, or shared e-Bike fleet.

Mahindra Taps Into GenZe Fleet e-Bike Connected Electric Mobility Solutions

GenZe is also using its experience with other fleet clients. Its GenZe fleet partners are Ford GoBike, Scoot, Scoobi, Postmates, and Doordash. It now feels that e-bikes offer a zero-emissions solution to delivery couriers, sightseeing tourists, daily commuters, and city workers. As e-bikes become more present, many are seeing how much of a low-cost, eco-friendly alternative it is. Add to this that today many office spaces and city spots offer parking and code enforcement for e-bike fleets.

According to GenZe Chief Commercial Officer Tom Valasek: “Shared-use and delivery fleets are now a major part of the e-Bike category, as operators recognize the many benefits of electric bicycles. We’re delivering a plug-and-play solution that makes it easier for independent operators to establish and maintain an e-Bike fleet – regardless of size.”

What GenZe brings to the table is a free-floating durable cable lock solution that unlocks via a smartphone app. With GPS location tracking and theft security, it reports via an API data feed the battery level, lock/unlock state, distance traveled, operating time, and more. The data feed can easily connect into an operator’s existing system. With its removable battery, a key feature for fleet operators, faster battery swapping reduces labor.

This year GenZe added a theft-resistant seat, as well as integrated protective fenders with a covered chain guard and hub cover. There is now a lightweight aluminum frame with newer Shimano mechanical disc brakes, as well as a front carrier basket with a customizable decal graphics package. GenZe says its Class 1 e-Bike was designed to reduce maintenance costs and compliant with most electric bikeshare operators in the US, and upcoming MDS and GBFS standards.

On a personal note, I’ve had a GenZe 101 for 4 years and all I can say is that the e-bike just works. It is an everyday rider and has suffered no problems, not even brake or gear maintenance. My wife and I have been both pleasantly surprised with how sturdy and how low-key it is.
