UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - 10 June 2019 - There is a new mobility solution available in Europe - the RadBurro Electric Cargo Trike designed by Rad Power Bikes. The RadBurro 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 maneuverable frame with flatbed, truck bed and cargo box configurations, makes the RadBurro adaptable for a variety of industries.

Rad Power Bikes, a global direct to consumer ebike company with a European headquarters in Utrecht, the Netherlands, will showcase the RadBurro at the International Cargo Bike Festival in Groningen on 14-16 June and at City Transport & Traffic Innovation (CiTTI) Exhibition in Milton Keynes on 18-19 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 programs 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 and is currently deployed by food companies, facility managers, urban cargo haulers, government and municipal organizations, and more.
