Zoomo has partnered with sustainable urban transport solutions provider, EAV, to again expand the range of vehicles available on its platform.
The announcement supports Zoomo and EAV’s, “shared vision of putting more light electric vehicles on the roads,” say the companies. E-bike subscription firm Zoomo also recently partnered with e-cargo bike manufacturer Urban Arrow to offer customers in the urban logistics space a “more diverse range of sustainable and efficient fleet subscription solutions”.
EAV says its bikes have a cargo volume of 2,000 litres and a 150kg payload and that this enables customers to make more deliveries in a shorter amount of time compared to vans as its vehicles can access cycle lanes and navigate pedestrianised spaces.
Zoomo says that as EAV’s official fleet partner, it will offer financing for the vehicles alongside its maintenance guarantee and fleet management software.
Michael Johnson, co-founder and CRO of Zoomo, commented: “We are bringing the vehicle leasing model from the automotive space to light electric vehicles.
“By integrating different vehicle types into our platform, like EAV e-cargo bikes, with leasing, servicing and telematically enabled software solutions, we are able to provide customers in urban logistics with a one-stop solution for all their delivery fleet needs.
“EAV’s cargo bikes are highly innovative and will enable us to offer more efficient and sustainable fleet solutions to our customers in existing and new segments, like parcel delivery.”
Adam Barmby, founder and CEO of EAV, added: “Zoomo are perfectly placed to support the take up of EAVs in city centres across the world, and drive the positive difference that we’re pushing for. We are thrilled to have a like-minded partner on our mission to revolutionise the last mile, and to create cleaner, safer cities.
“This partnership maximises our complementary expertise – with Zoomo’s servicing, financing and software making the switch to light electric vehicles a simple step for our shared customers.
“Meanwhile, we will continue to ensure every single vehicle meets the highest specifications for build and rider-experience, as we innovate on solutions which further reduce the cost and the emissions impact of urban logistics.”
EAV cargo bikes are available on the Zoomo platform in the UK and Europe. For more information visit: www.ridezoomo.com/eav.
