Electromobility for light electric vehicles

Major cities around the world have fascinating powers of attraction. People stream to them from all corners of the globe to live, work, and enjoy the city lifestyle. But as populations grow, so too does the urban landscape, with clogged roads, high noise levels, and poor air quality. Urban mobility today faces great challenges, and electromobility is one of the ways to counter them. Light electric vehicles with Bosch technology are already making inroads today; in addition to their quiet operation and lower consumption of resources, their advanced technology, user-friendly operation and great dynamics make for maximum driving fun.

For a motor capacity of 0.25 to 4 kW, Bosch offers integrated powertrain systems with a choice of in-hub or central motor, specially developed for the Asian market. Electrified two- and three-wheelers are particularly popular in China’s major cities where there are millions of them on the road. For vehicles with a capacity of up to 20 kW, the 48-volt central drive system provides powerful propulsion and is also easily scalable.



Narrow lanes, congested streets, and a shortage of parking spaces do not present any obstacles for maneuverable two-wheelers with an electric powertrain.

Easily scalable


Electro mobility in urban areas is multifaceted and includes multiple purposes such as personal commuting, public transportation and delivery services. For light electric vehicles in the performance range from 0.35 to 20 kW, Bosch offers a technical basis for safe, efficient and dynamic riding experience.

Thanks to the easy scalability, the integrated system is the perfect fit for various types of light electric vehicles.

These include two-wheeler and three-wheeler e-scooters for commuting or inner-city deliveries. Depending on the vehicle segment and individual power requirements further adaptations are possible. For example, heavier loads, like an extra electric motor, can be transported without impairing performance. This modular system also permits straightforward integration in new vehicle models as well as shorter times to market.
