These are the technical data
Jeep installs the battery in the form of a petrol tank, which can be removed between the top and center tube. The battery has an energy content of around 374 watt hours. This means that the cruiser should achieve a range of up to 50 kilometers.
Normally, from 374 watt hours, we would expect 70 kilometers of pedaling assistance. The relatively short range could be due to the relatively high weight of 30 kilograms. The driver may add a maximum of 120 kilograms of his own weight.
The cruiser is driven by a hub motor on the rear wheel. The motor from the Chinese manufacturer Xiongda has an output of 250 watts and a torque of 40 Newton meters. Since the cruiser is approved as a pedelec, the pedal assistance stops at 25 kilometers per hour.
For the pedal drive, the cruiser is equipped with a 7-speed derailleur from Shimano. For the wheels, Jeep relies on relatively small 26-inch models with a fat bike look, which are stopped by disc brakes at both the front and rear. On the left handlebar grip there is a small monochrome display and the buttons for the electrical control, on the right grip the derailleur is controlled.
