Lohner is an old name in the motor industry. Heinrich Lohner owned a coach-building company in 1821 in Vienna. When his grandson Ludwig hired the young Ferdinand Porsche, they created in 1900 the world’s first hybrid electric car: the Lohner-Porsche Electromobil. The company successfully got involved in aircraft construction successfully – Lohner became the biggest propeller manufacturers in that period. They began with electric trolley buses and developed trams.

In 1957 the company launched the Lohner Sissy, the world’s first two-seat moped. Back in these years, it was a successful project but the company faded out and was bought by Bombardier.

Today, Andreas Lohner (Heinrich’s great-grandson and an IT guy with no motorcycle experience) succeeded in re-establishing the Lohner factory and created the Lohner Stroler and the LEA, an electric scooter

Lohner Stroler: two seats, one e-bike

This e-bike is retro pur sang. Lohner has built an electric engine in the back wheel, integrated a large saddle for a passenger and the looks are very retro-stylish. The battery has been placed under the saddle while the “body” is transformed to a small compartment for the charging plug and your personal stuff.

Today as we speak, Andreas and a design team is updating the Stroler and we can’t wait for these results. We keep you posted!
