Fully Charged: "Your new van is now an electric cargo bike!"
Big news this week in the evolution of UK cycling retail, and it comes in the form of a 4 wheeled last mile delivery solution from Vok Bike, now distributed in the UK by Fully Charged.
The merging of worlds, happening via the eBike, sees a closing of the gap between (B2B) commercial fleet vehicles and (B2C) personal eBikes used for cycling as transport. The common element; getting from A to B efficiently – using less time and energy, whilst also reducing cost.
For Vok Bikes, the Estonian manufacturer is intending to implement real change for the rapid growth of cargo bikes here in the UK, with their innovative quadracycles becoming a true sustainable and economically viable alternatives for many van trips.
Importantly, here in the UK quadracycles are classified as electric cargo bikes and can be ridden in cycle lanes.
Vok has been engineered as a commercial vehicle, designed and built for longevity, with durability and rider comfort in mind.
Quadracycles step in where two-wheeled cargo bikes can, for certain cargo types, meet a natural limit (which is also far beyond where many would imagine), offering potential for greater load capacity, whilst also maintaining stability, comfort and safety.
With Vok launching their XL product, and with the Vok Standard currently available to demo at Fully Charged, the business founded in 2014 by Ben Jaconelli, sees partnership with Vok as a prime opportunity to drive a transport revolution, reshaping what the future of our towns and cities could look like.
For businesses keen to explore what Light Electric Vehicles (LEV) can deliver as a last mile deliver solution and white van replacement, Fully Charged are hosting 3 consecutive demo days on the 17th, 18th and 19th May at their London Bridge service centre.
