First look at the new Cybex e-Priam electric pushchair
Cybex has launched an electronic version of their luxury Priam travel system and we've had the chance to try it out...
Cybex has expanded its range of pushchairs with the launch of the e-Priam, an electronic version of its popular Priam travel system.
We've already seen pushchairs with an electronic folding system, but Cybex has integrated a motor into the new e-Priam to help you over hilly and rough terrains.
Like the original Priam it comes as a complete travel system, so you can use the e-Priam frame with the LUX or LITE carrycot and an infant car seat.
The e-Priam is not out until July but we've a sneak peek at what you can expect....
What are the best features of the Cybex e-Priam?
One of the main features of the e-Priam is its smart uphill support feature. As you push the stroller the sensors in the handlebar detect how much your pushing and pulling. This causes a motor to kick in which assists you on inclines.
You don't need to put in a lot of effort before the motor kicks in and compared to the original Priam, it requires much less effort when you're going up or down a hill.
What's more, if you use your pushchair on rough terrain such as country paths it also comes with a smart uneven surface support feature. This can be turned on and off by the power button on the rear axle, depending on when you need a little extra help.
The e-Priam is battery powered and can cover approximately 8-45km depending on your load and terrain. However the batteries will take around 6 hours to fully charge according to Cybex.
How much does the Cybex e-Priam cost?
The e-Priam will be available to buy from July and will start from £1199. In comparison, you can buy the original Priam pushchair from around £800 depending on any additional extras you choose such as a carrycot.
And in terms of design it's is almost identical to the original Priam with a similar selection of colours with four different frames in rose gold, chrome with brown or black details and matte black.
