Carr-e

cargo e-bike transportation for tomorrow´s city logistics

With its cargo e-bike concept called carr-e, Spirit Design likes to contribute to an innovative, urban mobility. As the planet becomes more urban, cities need to become smarter. There is a need of actions to be taken to avoid road congestions, conflicts with pedestrians and all types of environmental pollution. Urban transport is responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from tansport. The European Commission 2011 white paper outlines the need to reduce vehicle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 60% by 2050 (compared to 1990), to limit the effects of climate change.

According to these problems, Spirit Design made strong efforts to develop new transportation systems for cities. After detailed market and technology research, the innovation company recognized the high market potential of the logistic section for sustainable mobility concepts. Therefore Spirit Design developed last year the first virtual prototype of CARR-E, an electric 4 wheel cargo bike. The versatile pedelec is made to transport freights, charges and tools in the B2B field. Spirit Design produced a functional prototype for numerous usability tests and feature adaptions. After the testing, Spirit Design is moving into the next phase: the production of a near-serial prototype. There are negotiations with different production partners to realize this innovative mobility concept. Potential Austrian target groups for carr-e are logistic and delivery/messenger services, postal services, companies with an own fleet, promotion vehicles, cities and privates.
