the commercial features bill murray reprising his role from the 1993 hit movie groundhog day. murray can be seen riding in the snow on the bike with the groundhog, punxsutawney phil, in a basket at the front. the actual subject of the commercial is the jeep gladiator pickup truck but the new e-bike makes a cameo. 

 

according to quietkat, the bike will be able to do 40 miles on a single charge with the power and efficiency of the 750 watt electric motor. 4.8-inch fat tires can tackle the most extreme terrain and fire-link suspension has all the tractive capability of a four-wheeler.
