Electric Cargo Bikes are an environmentally friendly alternative to some other modes of transportation. They are fully tax deductible for businesses, they have no parking costs, minimal running costs (charging the battery and servicing) and do not require a licence or road tax.
Studies show that they can be more efficient and improve a company’s image making customers more likely to repeat purchase, this survey also shows that people were happy to pay up to 5% more on goods and services from sustainable businesses.
