The RadBurro electric cargo trike, designed by Rad Power Bikes, has been approved for European markets.
It is one of the first to be Whole Vehicle Type Approved under the L2e-U category, allowing for 1,500 watts of clean electric power instead of the standard 250-watts. The power, combined with a long-range battery, large carrying capacity and manoeuvrable frame with flatbed, truck bed and cargo box configurations, makes the RadBurro adaptable for a variety of industries, the brand has said.
Rad Power Bikes, a global direct to consumer e-bike company with a European headquarters in Utrecht, the Netherlands, will showcase the RadBurro at the International Cargo Bike Festival in Groningen from 14th to 16th June and at the City Transport and Traffic Innovation Exhibition in Milton Keynes from 18th to 19th June.
“We built the RadBurro to be a realistic, versatile, and affordable last-mile alternative that can help solve many of the transportation challenges that businesses and Government programmes face today,” said Teun Kruijff, European commercial specialist for Rad Power Bikes.
“This type-approval means we can bring a powerful, proven solution to customers across Europe who are working to improve their operations and eliminate their carbon emissions.”
The RadBurro first launched in North America in 2018.
