Salem Chosen as First U.S. City to Receive SANYO Hybrid BicycleSalem-News.com
SANYO presented the City of Salem and the State of Oregon with 2 hybrid bicycles today, after the conclusion of the Sustainability Summit.
(SALEM, Ore.) - A public dedication ceremony that was held in coordination with Salem Sustainability Summit, saw SANYO unveil its hybrid electric eneloop bicycle and gift; one to the City of Salem and one to the State of Oregon.
The new eneloop bike, an electric hybrid bicycle concept, stresses ‘looping energy’ or a lifestyle of reusing and recycling. With this new product, clean and reusable energy is “generated, recharged,and conserved” simultaneously.
Energy is generated by the rider, recharging the auxiliary battery, and conserving the energy both from the main battery and the rider.
A brief acceptance ceremony was followed by an inaugural ride in Riverfront Park as the public and media were given a chance to see the eneloop bicycle.
Tim McCabe, OECDD Director, accepted the bike for the State of Oregon. Mayor Janet Taylor accepted the bicycle for the City of Salem.
The event took place at Salem’s Riverfront Park Pavilion.
