PeddleSMART and Stalcom Automotive Technologies announced at Cenex-LCV 2019 on September 4-5 that they are working together to create a range of zero-emission micro-delivery vehicles, including pedal-assisted electric cargo bikes, quadricycles and micro-vans.
According to the companies, this partnership will present a new offering to fleet customers, using lightweight, sustainable material and process technologies that deliver significant lifetime cost savings. Overall, the new vehicles will help reduce urban pollution and congestion and help move the industry toward a significantly improved urban environment.
One of the vehicles to be introduced to the market in November 2019 is the Urban200 that will enable transport and sustainability managers across multiple transport sectors to achieve a reduction of their operational costs whilst also reducing their carbon footprint. With the ability to transport 200kg (400 lb) for up to 40 miles and access bus lanes, cycle lanes and pedestrian areas, this small freight vehicle is a great way for clients to transport goods fast and efficiently, according to PeddleSMART.
Adam Reid, chief executive of PeddleSMART, said, “With towns and cities looking to go zero-carbon and planning to expand pedestrian areas, the arrival of the agile Urban200 gives our clients the opportunity to overcome access challenges, operational constraints and integrate with regional micro-hubs.”
Following to introduction of the Urban200 later this year, PeddleSMART will launch a range of quadricycle, N1 category vans and utility vehicles in 2020 that will give a unique pedal-assisted zero emissions offering to delivery fleet operators.
Urban Delivery Operations and Urban Delivery Technology are just two of the sessions being held at next month’s Parcel+Post Expo Conference. Plus, visit Parcel+Post Expo to see the test track, which will show off many new and exciting postal and parcel delivery vehicles.
