On 26 March ExtraEnergy handed nine trophies to product category winners of the organization's latest pedelec and e-bike test. The award ceremony was held at the consumer cycle fair VELOBerlin in Berlin and was almost as popular as the Test IT Test track. On the day roughly 1,500 Berlin citizens tested a variety of e-vehicles on the ExtraEnergy-operated test track.
The 2010/11 test was the third test in which ExtraEnergy identified category winners. This time around 7 pedelecs of 6 different manufacturers were singled out in 9 different product categories. The Thömus Stromer of Ultramotor won 3 different categories, namely Sport, Wellness and Business.
The product categories mirror the different ways consumers use pedelecs.
