The Electric Cargo Trike is a compact tilting vehicle designed for last mile delivery in urban contexts. The trike offers a sustainable alternative to large delivery vans, with a cargo bed to hold medium-large parcels, and a strap to secure them. The tilting front wheel assembly allows the driver to lean into corners which improves handling, stability and safety, and the front and rear suspension protects cargo from bumpy road surfaces.
Awarded the 2019 National James Dyson Award:
“This is an urban ute. Nobody has applied disruptive thinking to this type of vehicle before. This could become a transportation game-changer from a global perspective. Having spent a significant amount of my life in the developing world, I see a real need and opportunity for this design. The Electric Cargo Trike has a place in every developing country and is a great example of Kiwi applied technology.”
