Welcome to Tas Electric Vehicles.
Our focus and speciality is electric bikes, also known as ebikes or e-bikes.
We have two wheel and three wheel bikes that have their motors in the front, rear or middle of the bike.
We have most of the popular brands like Leitner, Tebco, Powerped, E-motion, Smartmotion, Kalkhoff and more and what we don’t have we can usually order in.
The bikes we have in store are ready to go, but change constantly, so if there is anything you see in our online store, make sure you contact us rather than assume we have it in store.
Repairs and Service
Our workshop technicians are ready to repair and/or service your e-bike.
The ones you buy off us we know the best, and have spare parts to, so consider that as a factor when choosing an ebike.
Consider an Electric Bike Lifestyle
Electric bikes, or ebikes, are becoming a part of the two wheel landscape as people realise that cars are not that cheap to own. Environmentally cars are unfriendly and are becoming expensive to park, and on a nice day are just not as much fun as rolling along on a bike.
You may have shied away from bicycles over the years because you think bikes are hard to ride, or traffic is a bit daunting. Perhaps you don’t feel fit enough to ride a bike.
You may have a physical issues that makes riding a normal two wheel bicycle difficult. Perhaps you have damaged knees or hips or an issue that just makes pedalling difficult. Perhaps you have trouble with your balance.
Electric bikes have a motor to help you along by assisting when you are pedalling. Some of our bikes have a throttle as well. On these you don’t have to pedal at all (although riding with the motor only will shorten your range quite a bit).
What about scooters?
Some say that if you need a motor in/on your bike, then you might as well get a motorised electric scooter. For some people that is correct. For others it isn’t. Scooters are bigger and heavier than bikes. If their battery goes flat you have to push them, and they are not very fast. Electric bikes are not limited by the range of the battery. Three wheeled bikes (tricycles or trikes) are as stable as any scooter and the motor gives them a much larger capacity for cargo. For many this makes them a better choice.
Have an Electric Bike Conversation with us.
In our shop you will find electric bikes that can fold up and go in the boot of your car. These are quite popular for those that want to park at the edges of the city, where parking is often free, and then ride into town where they work.
Portable electric bikes also make an excellent emergency vehicle for Campervan and RV people, or truck drivers, or 4WD enthusiast/explorers.
We are happy to have a chat with you about all of this in our showroom and workshop in Prospect, Tasmania (about five minutes drive from Launceston CBD) where we have a range of electric bikes for you to test ride (or buy when you realise how much fun they are).
Not all the bikes we can supply are in the shop at any one time but you can see our range of bikes available here. In the shop we have accessories as well, so if you have a specific bike in mind or you need a new saddle or bike light, give us a call on (03) 6343 0544 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can also provide you with service and/or repair of your electric bike if you already have one so once again please give us a call.
