As Poslovni Dnevnik/Sergej Novosel Vuckovic writes, this Sveta Nedelja-based company has grown 110 percent in recent years, this year that growth will exceed 120 percent, and the Croatian Greyp bikes company working seriously on its first city model, the electric citybike, which should be on the roads of the cities and streets by early 2024.
This was revealed on the sidelines of the first inter-industry discussion on sustainable business, launched by Nestle in Croatia, by Vladimir Karmelic, the marketing manager of the Croatian Greyp bikes company. The new model should be predestined for city driving and be more affordable, according to Karmelic. Existing models are more for mountain and trekking activities.
“With the development of technology that is our primary focus, we can see that the next step for the bike is to have it be an everyday companion to the rider, it will have navigation that warns of pollution on the route, informs the rider where there is traffic and crowding in the city and recommends green routes,” Karmelic stated when describing the future Greyp bike, a vehicle which is set to fit even more into the story of sustainability and the eco profile that the company believes so strongly in.
This year at the Croatian Greyp bikes company they can be very satisfied indeed with the irnumbers, they have sold, all over the world, 1500 of their most popular model, the G6, the older G12 was about sixty models sold, and the latest, presented this summer, the T5, has seen about 600 copies sold. Unlike the vast majority of companies, the pandemic has actually helped them due to increased demand, but, they admit, also slowed some things down because parts factories in Vietnam and Thailand ended up being closed.
Due to global disruptions in supply chains caused by that same public health crisis, they have experienced difficulties with the procurement of certain components, especially technological ones important for connectivity, which also affects the delivery of finished products. But unlike their competitors (including “regular” manufacturers), which have also experienced significant delays, Greyp bike customers are already aware that they’ll have a wait of around two months on their hands after making their purchase.
