Did you know many of our EBC bikes take their names from popular Tesla models? Our founder, Sean Lupton-Smith has long been a fan of Tesla’s mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Tesla was founded 17 years ago by a group of engineers who wanted to develop an electric car that was faster, more fun to drive and much better for the environment than gasoline powered cars.
Fast forward to 2014 and Lupton-Smith took a leaf out of fellow South African Elon Musk’s book and founded the Electric Bike Company right here in the US with the aim of helping create real and lasting change in the world. Inspired by Musk’s Model S, the world’s first ever electric sedan built from the ground up, he first launched the Model C, a classically styled electric cruiser also built from the ground up. The Model S quickly followed – offering a classic step-through style electric cruiser.
Best-in-Class Electric Bikes
Now with six different E-Bike models and an electric scooter to boot, EBC like Tesla is an industry leader. Our best-in-class electric bikes give our riders the best possible experience. Elon Musk’s background as an industrial designer and engineer has been an inspiration to Lupton-Smith who has always been very hands on. Working hard to bring E-Biking to a much larger audience, he made it his mission to build a forward-thinking company that delivers what our customers want, exactly the way they want it. As you would expect, he was instrumental in the design process – from the advanced engineering and physics that go into building the best possible E-Bike to working out the best way to stack the batteries and designing the best-performing tires.
Designed and Built in the United States
As the only major E-Bike brand that builds bikes here in the United States, we source the best parts from 11 different countries and offer unlimited options to customize your E-Bike.
