Specializing in snow mobility, the company is moving in on the US market, producing 400 MoonBikes for European and American markets. The company did provide us a press release, and we’ve pulled some interesting bits posted below.
MoonBikes is the brainchild of Nicolas Muron. In the winter of 2015, while visiting his family home in the French Alps, Nicolas realized that snow mobility solutions were extremely limited. Haunted by the desire to change how people travel, have fun, and explore nature during the winter, he put his experience as an aeronautical engineer at Dassault Aviation to task to create this unique vehicle. The start-up was created in 2018.
The year 2021 emerged as a promising year for the company. In Europe, 12 ski resorts adopted the innovative e-vehicle. Soon after closing a $5M seed round, MoonBikes decided to accelerate its commercial development in the US and, as a first step, opened an office in Boulder (CO) in September. Currently, 400 MoonBikes are being produced for both European and American markets. The company aims at producing 1,500 snowbikes next year.
MoonBikes will unveil the world’s first electric snowbike at the Consumer Electronics Show 2022 as well as during CES Unveiled, the official media event of CES. MoonBikes brings an unparalleled response to the challenges of modern mobility, creating a veritable revolution in the snow mobility market. Eco-friendly, perfectly silent and easy-to-ride, this unique mobility solution intends to change the face of winter seasons for years to come. The MoonBikes snowbike is only two-thirds the size of the average snowmobile. It gives its users the freedom of an e-bike, with the power of a motorcycle.
I’ve always wanted to create a machine to make winter exploration fun and easy, said Nicolas Muron, founder and CEO.MoonBikes
This idea is undoubtedly unique, and those who enjoy snowmobiles will probably love these. There is perhaps a learning curve, but I suspect that anyone who has operated at the very least a motorcycle will get the hang of this quickly.
