UPS Testing New Cargo Cruiser Electric Delivery Bicycle

UPS announced yesterday on their Facebook Page that they're testing a new electrically powered delivery bicycle in Dortmund, Germany dubbed the "UPS Cargo Cruiser".

I wonder if there are pedals in there:

Cheers for green logistics. *Like 


  1. Cool. From the position of the driver's legs, it looks like his feet may very well be on pedals.

  2. Looks like a next generation velotaxi.

  3. Who makes it?
    How much?

  4. This looks like a promising concept. It will help in getting deliveries to areas where the bigger trucks can't reach. Besides, it can take smaller space in a warehouse, and doesn't need as much spending for fuel as the bigger delivery vehicles.

  5. The bike rental shop is not difficult to find, though getting adequate parking during busy hours might be difficult. The shop owner is polite and helpful and did his best to accommodate my height challenged girlfriend. electric bikes nz
