by donpedro

It has been long before electrically assisted cycling became a mass (and growth) market, when Panasonic presented its first e-bike 1979 in Japan. Bicycles always enjoyed a particular attention within the global corporation – company founder Konosuke Matsushita worked in a bicycle store in his youth -and have been part of the product range since the 1950s.

Also nowadays, Panasonic Cycle Technology is setting trends in the e-bike market – not only with battery technology, but also with the powerful motors of the GX series.
