Jeeps can conquer most terrain but when it comes to last-mile solutions, there’s a new kid on the block the automaker is introducing this summer – Jeep e-Bike. It’s a branded model from QuietKat, a company that makes electric bikes for a variety of terrain that has bicycles for sale under the model names Warrior, Predator, and Apex.

The electrified all-terrain bicycle is an electric mountain bike powered by a 750-watt electric UltraDrive mid-drive motor. It has 4.8-inch fat tires and a Fire-Link suspension. Jeep says that the model gets up to 40 miles on a single charge.
QuietKat sells its bikes in two sizes: 17-inch and 19-inch. The smaller frame is billed for small/medium riders and the larger is for medium/large riders.
These frames were new for the QuietKat brand for 2019 have a lower stand-over height than their previous frames. The new sizes also allow for better handling according to the brand.
QuietKat currently sells additional/replacement batteries as well as external chargers.
Pricing of the e-Bike has yet to be announced. QuietKat’s bicycles are priced from $2,669 to $6,199 on their website.
