Stuttgart/Reutlingen – The new PowerTube 625 is Bosch’s energy supplier for maximum range and altitude. The powerful, integrable lithium-ion battery is the ideal companion for eMountain bikers and eBikers who travel long distances. Also new in the portfolio: the compact PowerTube 400, which can be elegantly integrated into the frame of city bikes. Bosch eBike Systems is thus offering three variants of integrable rechargeable batteries from model year 2020, which cover all application areas with different energy contents.

Combines highest demands on performance and aesthetics

“Any brand that offers eBikers new functions and features and provides more performance, as we do with our new Performance Line CX, must also offer more range. That’s what we are doing with the new PowerTube 625,” explains Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems. “With the PowerTube 500, which was introduced two years ago, we have already set new standards for integrated batteries. Today it is used by numerous manufacturers. Now we’re adding more with the PowerTube 625. With the two new models, we now offer the right battery solution for every wheel type and every requirement,” says Fleischer.
In addition to the aesthetic advantage, the PowerTubes from Bosch score above all with their high mileage and long service life. The lithium-ion batteries are particularly easy to handle and ensure untroubled riding enjoyment. A neat function allows the PowerTube to release about two centimetres out of the frame when opening, so it is easier to handle. A safety catch prevents the battery from falling out. The battery is additionally protected by the frame. There are two options for installing the PowerTube: horizontally or vertically.

PowerTube 625: Efficient power for demanding rides

The new PowerTube 625 has an energy content of approx. 625 watt hours and thus ensures long-lasting riding enjoyment even on mountainous terrain. Its compact size (416mm x 84mm x 65mm) and the weight of approx. 3.5 kilograms enables optimum integration into the downtube. The eBike thus achieves a slim and clean look. A completely emptied PowerTube 625 can be charged to 50% in less than 1.5 hours with the 6 A Fast Charger and to 100% in about 3.7 hours. The PowerTube 625 is also available in combination with DualBattery: The coupling of two batteries delivers up to 1,250 watt hours of energy to the pedelec.

PowerTube 400: Stylish energy supplier for city and country

With the new PowerTube 400, the stylish city eBike becomes a modern eye-catcher. The slim dimensions (349mm x 84mm x 65mm) and minimalist design allow seamless integration into the pedelec. With an energy capacity of approx. 400 watt hours, the lithium-ion battery has sufficient energy for daily trips in the city or smaller excursions to the countryside. With its low weight of around 2.9 kilograms, the PowerTube 400 can be easily stowed in a backpack and can also be used as a replacement battery for the PowerTube 500.
