Belgian designer Benjamin Surain is looking for investors to commercialise a new sustainable e-cargo vehicle | thepack.news

In Europe we are already familiar with cargo e-bikes for many purposes. Whether it is to take the children to and from school, to do your shopping or to use this vehicles for a last-mile delivery by couriers … a lot of families in an urban environment are already using these kind of light electric vehicles. Today, with the expensive energy prices and extreme fuel costs, theses e-bikes are getting very popular and in most cases they even are replacing the family car.

This new way of sustainable e-mobility inspired Benjamin Surain to design his own light electric vehicle: the Cargo-ped (and this is just a project name) is a large, foldable and modular scooter for many uses. However, this is not an ordinary kickstep: due to the larger floor panel, you can position your feet next to each other which gives a much greater and safer stability than with normal kicksteps. Another safety feature is that you have to start the vehicle using your own power (yes, you have to kick off with one foot). This way you avoid a sudden acceleration and you can keep control. By operating the speed button with your thumb, you quickly get on your way.

Last-mile solution for couriers

This modular “XXL-kickstep” is a perfect solution for last-mile delivery in the city. Its 2 (standard) foldable boxes can contain a lot of parcels. The boxes can be customised for different uses, even heated for food delivery. Of course the boxes can be delivered in your company’s corporate identity.

Industrial plant logistics

Bicycles and e-bikes are already being used in large warehouses or industrial grounds. The Cargo-ped can be a good and practical addition because of its larger load capacity than the bicycle. The boxes can be customised according to the application and the business activity.

For families

The Cargo-ped is a sustainable means of transport and offers a good alternative for a car in the city. The Cargo-ped can be equipped with one or 2 fold-out and stackable boxes with a cover. At the moment Benjamin is searching for a retro box solution, such as an old wooden brewer box, a wicker basket or a leather suitcase. In this way the scooter can be equipped according to everyone’s needs and style.
