In addition to traditional jeeps and pickups, which increase the mobility of Ukrainian troops, the Armed Forces have also used electric bikes from Ukrainian companies ELEEK and Delfast since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.
ELEEK Atom electric bike
Last week, Deputy Chairman of the Ukrainian Association of EVs Market Participants Vadym Ignatov wrote about the transfer of ELEEK Atom electric bikes to the Armed Forces, and the military has already tested them before and provided feedback.
“We take into account all the wishes of our fighters, which were discovered during the combat use of the first units. And most importantly, added a very important feature that will allow you not to take additional power banks in the raid. The companies have added 220 V output, which will allow the use of any standard charger. After testing in real combat conditions, special forces fighters assessed the benefits of electric bikes and the need for them will increase,” Ignatov wrote at the time.
The story of the use of electric vehicles in the Armed Forces continued today, after the message from the founder of Delfast Danylo Tonkopiy, who also told about the transfer of electric bikes for the military.
“We transferred electric bikes to the forefront in the first weeks of the war, but we didn’t talk about it – we do some things quietly. Now we have received permission from the command and publish photos where and what for our bikes are used,” wrote Danilo Tonkopiy.
In addition, the founder of Delfast quoted the military’s response to the use of electric bikes: “I liked the bike and it can really work for mobile groups. The plans for use include trips for air reconnaissance and equipment for work on “boxes”.
Thus, depending on the further efficiency of use, the number of electric bikes in the Armed Forces may increase.
