The Trikes City company, in partnership with Be Cycle, a Lyon based bike delivery company, wanted to develop its own delivery vehicle.
In urban areas, the problem of the “last mile” delivery is a major issue to limit the heavy goods vehicles traffic and to reduce pollution.
The specifications were simple: to be able to transport parcels up to a weight of 450 pounds, using minimal electrical assistance.
We have therefore developed the chassis architecture to allow a good maneuverability of the cycle and a rotomolded transport box with a great accessibility from the side using a roller blind.
We have also imagined removable spare parts allowing quick change in case of degradation.
Finally the design of the box has been studied to stiffen the casing allowing an easy industrial process.
Of course the comfort of the driver was obtained throught many prototypes.
