As an avid cyclist and urban commuter, I know how great it feels to get where I’m going easily and to show up sweat-free. We blended electrification engineering know-how, design talents and automotive-grade testing with great minds from the bike industry to create our eBikes. Now we want to expand our thinking beyond the company walls and hear from people who like to move and have rad ideas.

—Hannah Parish, director of General Motors Urban Mobility Solutions

Consumers can visit eBikeBrandChallenge.com to submit their ideas through 10 a.m. EST Monday 26 Nov. Winners will be announced early in 2019.
