E-bikes company aims to create "cleaner, greener" world with London launch

A company championing sustainable transport has announced that it is launching a fleet of green electric bikes in London this summer.

HumanForest, which trialled e-bikes in the capital last year, will be launching the new bikes in August.

The company predicts that the e-bikes will prevent the release of almost four tonnes of CO2 into London’s air each day.

The bikes are built using technology such as long-range, swappable batteries and initiatives to improve battery life and reduce waste.

HumanForest was due to launch in the spring, but the impact of Covid-19 on global supply chains and shipping has delayed the scheme until early August.

Agustín Guilisasti, founder and CEO of HumanForest, commented: “We are so excited to be launching our new fleet of e-bikes this summer.

“London is the perfect city for our bikes, with ambitious targets to reduce noise, traffic and pollution matched by our ethos of affordable and sustainable transport.

“Poor air quality kills millions of people each year, while road transport contributes to a quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions.

“Urban transport is increasingly damaging to our physical and mental wellbeing, and cycling can be an effective way to improve both.

“We look forward to reForesting London, one e-bike at a time, as part of our mission to build a cleaner, greener, healthier world.”
