Micro-mobility company Voi, best known for their shared electric scooters in cities across Europe, are expanding and have now also launched e-bikes alongside their new generation of e-scooters.
Although they've only been in existence for eight months over 2 million people have already taken a ride on a Voi scooter, and now they're pushing to launch in 30 cities by the end of this summer. We're not 100% if the UK is in the pipeline eventually (at the moment e-scooters aren't legal on many paths and pavements), but Voi say they will be making an appearance in cities across Germany, Belgium, Italy and Poland.
Voi's fleet will include the Voiager 2, described as a 'state-of-the-art' e-scooter to provide maximum comfort, speed and efficiency.
The Voi electric bike and three-wheel e-cargo bike will have a 250 watt limit to comply with EU regulations, and Voi say their expanded range of vehicles gives them "the ability to offer city authorities a complete solution for micro-mobility sharing that can integrate easily with public transport and pedestrians in urban areas."
The Voi e-cargo bike has a large box at the front with seatbelts for carrying passengers, and is built for carrying heavy, bulky loads.
Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, of UK investors Balderton Capital, said:“At a time when there is such an urgent need to reduce carbon and protect the environment, it’s encouraging to see companies so passionate about building green transport solutions. VOI Technologies is working tirelessly to achieve its vision of creating car-free cities. Not only has it created new scooter models and e-bikes to adapt to its rapidly growing rider community, but its vision is being achieved with an impressive level of collaboration with local authorities.”
