eMoped trial launched for London’s delivery drivers

HumanForest eMoped trial

HumanForest is launching a scheme in London to rent eMopeds to the capital’s delivery drivers.

Its eMoped trial consists of 200 vehicles, all fully powered by certified renewable energy, which will be rented by business delivery riders across London.  

The company describes its offering as a state-of-the-art electric vehicle suitable for longer trips, offering a 70-mile range, dual electric batteries, an integrated USB charging point, phone holder, integrated GPS tracking and alarm system, as well as a 40L Top Box equipped with HumanForest eMoped helmet. 

Users are given five minutes free per day and rides will cost £0.20p per minute thereafter, or customers can benefit from buying minute bundles, allowing them to ride from £1.50 per hour. Users will also be charged per kilometre ridden. 

Combustion mopeds are by far the most popular vehicle for on demand deliveries in London, and yet eMopeds are only used for 5% of deliveries.

HumanForest says that by making the eMopeds affordable and accessible, it believes it can help businesses and riders switch to an environmentally friendly mode of transport.

It estimates that it can remove the need for up to 3,000 combustible mopeds and that for every mile ridden on an eMoped, 130g of CO2 is prevented from being released into London’s air.

Parking will be available in certain areas of central London, near important transport links and busy high streets and all riders will undergop safety and compliance checks. 

HumanForest CEO & founder, Agustin Guilisasti, said: “Becoming multi-modal with London’s first shared and truly green eMoped scheme gives Londoners another tool to reduce their carbon footprint and improve air quality. 

“As petrol prices reach record-highs, this is a timely launch for businesses to embrace sustainable transport through a shared service with maximum flexibility. We are excited to welcome this new type of user into our community.”
