Electric Cargo Scooter with 150 Kms Range Spotted in Testing

Many businesses and individuals depend on motorcycles for deliveries, but they can only carry small loads and don't shield packages from weather. To address these issues and improve last-mile delivery Qargos created the world's first electric cargo motorcycle.

Innovative Specifications

The Qargos electric cargo scooter is powered by a 6.1 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, developed in collaboration with French multinational software corporation Dassault Systèmes. This formidable battery connects to a 3.4 kW motor capable of generating 6 kW of peak power. With a top speed limited to 80 km/h the scooter offers a remarkable range of 150 km on a single charge making it ideal for urban delivery operations.

At 145 kg in weight, the Qargos electric cargo scooter features a spacious 225-liter cargo compartment capable of carrying up to 120 kg of cargo. The vehicle's charging capabilities include a standard AC power socket with plans underway to introduce DC charging capabilities that will significantly reduce charging time to approximately 3 hours.

Enhanced Efficiency 

The Qargos electric cargo scooter really steps up the game, letting couriers carry double the packages per trip and simplifying how they get it all done. With the larger cargo space, delivery executives can handle around 70 parcels per trip, compared to the average of 35 parcels with conventional two-wheelers. Say goodbye to lugging around heavy bags, the built-in cargo space ups delivery game comfort and gets jobs done 

With a cargo space that locks up tight, you have got both weather protection and theft prevention covered, a real collaborative effort for companies and their clients. Working with Dassault Systèmes, they have dialed up the scooter's design to cut through the air better. This not only stretches how far it can go but also steps up its game putting it in a strong spot among rivals for those delivery performances.
