UPS is exploring a range of solutions to make deliveries within cities more efficient and with zero emissions, including with electric bicycles and tricycles. We launched our first eBike delivery pilot in Hamburg, Germany, in 2012. Today, we are working on more than 30 urban logistics projects in cities worldwide.
Biking enthusiasts and sweat-haters rejoice – the eBike is here.
As part of General Motors’ commitment to an all-electric future, the eBike is one of the latest electrification technologies developed to give customers more freedom to move and dream beyond the traditional vehicle. The eBike is also designed to reduce congestion in crowded urban areas, offering a way for public transportation commuters to complete the final blocks to their destination.
Two innovative, integrated and connected eBikes – one folding and one compact – were recently introduced without a brand.
