Devinci now in Monaco
Devinci maintains its grip in the field of self-service cycling, while the Principality of Monaco has received its fleet of 300 BOOST, an electric bicycle. With the MonaBike, the small city-state becomes the first to offer its population a 100% electric bike sharing system.
Since partnering with PBSC Urban Solutions, Devinci has delivered more than 80,000 bicycles that roam the streets of 35 cities around the globe. All devices are manufactured at the Chicoutimi plant.
The sovereign prince of Monaco, Albert II, received an electric tandem at the launch of the MonaBike.
“After a huge success among users in Barcelona and Valencia, where the number of users has increased during launch and is still growing steadily, we are very honored to provide Monaco with our all-electric bike sharing system, a real solution. micromobility. The self-service bike is the perfect way to get around and enjoy all that The Rock of Monaco has to offer, “said Luc Sabbatini, President and CEO of PBSC.
The BOOST electric bike is equipped with a propulsion motor that adjusts to provide each rider with customized assistance, while propelling them at a speed of up to 25 km / h. It has an autonomy of 60 km. The electric bike battery charges automatically when plugged into one of the PBSC Smart Stations.
The Principality of Monaco is an example to promote carbon-free travel with its Smart City program, which already proposed a bike sharing system. The fleet will be completely renewed with the MonaBike. New features add to the prestige of the service, such as the resort-valet option that will be deployed at prestigious events, such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Devinci was keen to mark it in his own way. At the official launch, an electric tandem in the colors of the MonaBike was handed to the sovereign prince of Monaco, Albert II.
The Monegasque prince is not at his first link with the Saguenay. In March, her two 4-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella became adoptive parents of two Saguenay belugas after a $ 150,000 donation to the Marine Mammal Research and Education Group. Albert II made this donation during his visit to Quebec. He is actively engaged in the protection of biodiversity.
