Today we congratulate our existing and coming customers in Germany on the purchase premium on commercial, high capacity cargo bikes that went into effect today. Cargo bikes with a minimum cargo capacity of 150 kg and 1 m3 are eligible for the premium, and the Armadillo do have this capacity.
This comes only days after the “diesel ban” story. This means we can not only congratulate our customers, but also all people living in German cities! You will now get cleaner air, lower noise levels, less traffic barriers, less congestion and more faces. And everyone on earth will benefit as a high capacity electric assist cargo bike only uses a few percent of the energy and resources a van uses, electric or ICE, when doing the same transport work. Thus we increase our chances to meet the 1,5 degree global warming target.
