LeEco Earns Coveted Spot in Rankings for its Sleek and Modern
Connected Bicycle

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LeEco (formerly Letv), a leading global Internet technology company,
announced today that the company earned the No. 6 spot in Fast
Company’s
Top
10 Most Innovative Companies in China
” list. LeEco was recognized as
one of China’s most nimble businesses, and a fast-rising newcomer
driving impactful innovation. The magazine highlighted LeEco’s Super
Bike, an electric, connected smart bicycle generating headlines around
the world.


“We’re delighted to have LeEco honored by Fast Company,” said Eric Mika,
senior vice president of open eco systems, strategic alliances and
partnerships at LeEco. “This award is a testament to our innovative
global movement to build and share a more beautiful, efficient, and
connected eco world that creates breakthrough experiences for our users.”

This January at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, U.S. audiences for
the first time were able to experience the breadth of LeEco’s
innovations ranging from its top-selling Le Superphones to the world’s
first 120-inch 4K Ultra HD TV, along with connected car technologies
that the company is developing with Aston Martin, as well as the Super
Bike. The LeEco Super Bike is an exceptional, connected device on
wheels, combining state-of-the-art software and hardware offering riders

“This is an exciting time for consumers as cutting-edge technology along
with our connected ecosystem is helping to reinvent everyday products
and devices,” said Zhenjian Lei, CEO of LeSports, a division of LeEco.
“We’re looking forward to bringing U.S. consumers many more exciting
products and new ways to experience content on our devices and bikes in
2016 and beyond.”

Most Innovative Companies is one of Fast Company’s most
significant and highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. To
produce the 2016 list, the magazine’s editors spent a full year
gathering and analyzing data on companies around the globe. For the
first time, Fast Company enlisted machine intelligence to help
inform the list: Quid, a San Francisco-based startup, used its software
to create topographical maps of innovation across more than 40 sectors
of the economy.

“This year’s package—which includes top ten lists in 27
sectors—emphasizes the breadth of companies with progressive, agile
business models, cultures of creativity, and ability to adapt in today’s
fast-paced world,” said Fast Company editor Robert
Safian.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March
2016) is now available online at www.fastcompany.com/MIC
as well as in app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning February
23rd.
