Electric bicycles and vehicles are not only trending amongst urban commuters and private users, they are rapidly gaining popularity for governmental or law enforcement applications.
As cities are more and more concerned about pollution and sustainability, electric bikes today are also often used to replace classical scooters and motorcycles.
Normal bicycles have long been in service for patrol, security, parks, trails and urban use cases.
The added power, higher speeds and less exhaustive ride style of electric bikes make the increasingly the choice of ride for these missions.
Electric bikes are the ultimate solution for urban law enforcement, first responders and emergency personnel. They offer reduced response times, extended range, lowered costs and instant familiarity. Electric bikes will greatly enhance the abilities of its rider and enable them to do more and do it more quickly and efficiently.
Besides beeing faster and quieter than regular patrol motorcycles and scooters, they allow a stealthy approach to scenes and are able to shortcut more efficiently in urban areas.
Electric bikes can be used to quickly bring fast response units of the local fire brigade to accident/ fire sites. E-bikes are able to reach fire/ accident sites faster than fire trucks and officers can start to assess, secure and prepare the site even before the actual fire trucks arrive.
A fire brigade fast response bike can be equipped with a trailer, allowing to take 2-3 fire extinguishers, 100 ft hose, basic firefighting and first aid equipment along with PA system.
Another new application for powerful e-bikes is medical and emergency attention and first aid missions. Equipped with defibrillator and first aid equipment they allow medical personal to reach the scene much faster than ambulances or cars.
Especially in crowded touristic areas, medical staff is able to be on site much faster than a motor ambulance, to provide first medical attention and care.
Ambulance/ First aid bikes are typically equipped with defibrillator, oxygen cylinder, medical kit, protective blankets, stretcher (trailer) and a double seat option.
E-Bikes also find applications in park, real estate and nature surveillance and asset management (documentation, tree control, park controll).
The UNIMOKE was designed to be a real workhorse that can be easily adapted to many missions. There are very few e-bikes that match the features of the UNIMOKE electric bike:
