E-cargo bike on test in Oxford completes more than 200 zero-emission deliveries

An electric cargo bike on trial in Oxford by delivery service CitySprint has completed upwards of 200 zero-emission deliveries and travelled more than 8,000 miles.

The bike, provided by EAV Solution since May, is based on an electric pushbike and as such does not require a driving licence or registration with the DVLA. They are also permitted to use pedestrian areas and cycle paths.

The 2Cubed bike gives CitySprint the ability to transport up to 150kg of freight in a cargo space that is customisable to its clients' and riders' demands.

Oxford has a varied schedule in place for the duration of the trial to include ad-hoc overnight collections, hospital blood collections and medicine deliveries around Oxford. 

A number of couriers have been keen to get involved with the trial and see what the e-cargo bike has to offer.

Oxford’s service centre manager, Michael Peterson, said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to trial the EAV and now branded looks awesome, we have had feedback from multiple couriers and has been very positive.

“Members of the public have asked to take photos along with customers who have also been impressed with the EAV capabilities.”

The trial, says CitySprint, proves its commitment to making logistics more sustainable and offering a portfolio of zero-emission delivery options to its customers, and shortly follows the news that CitySprint is now a certified carbon neutral business.
