Company behind the original Mini Cooper to launch the Cooper E electric bike.

Cooper Bikes, the bicycle division of the Cooper Car Company, which made the original Mini Cooper, is to launch an electric bike. The Cooper E will have a 520 Reynolds steel frame and will feature an integrated battery and motor unit in the rear hub.

The bike's 250-watt motor will have an in-built KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery) system, similar to that found in Formula One cars.

"The Cooper E bike is clean and elegant in its design but functions as a brilliant city E Bike," said a company statement. The bike is due to be released later this month. Coming later in 2018 will be the Cooper E Disc which will feature a Gates belt drive.
