This may not be the most practical cargo trike we’ve ever seen – but it’s certainly the most striking, combining a tricycle from the 1920s with the front end of a Citroën 2CV.
It’s the work of Milan-based designer Luca Agnelli, who creates unique electric pedal-assist bikes he creates using parts from salvaged vintage 1950s motorcycles, including petrol tanks that are repurposed to house the battery.
The Agnelli 2CV Paris, combines parts from the iconic French car, which was in production from a 1929 Doniselli Duomo cargo trike
The trike is finished with a saddle and other accessories from Brooks, and has a 250 Watt motor.
It is a one-off created for the Autonomy Urban Mobility Show (link is external), which took place earlier this month at the Grande Hall de la Villette in Paris - around 5 kilometres along the Boulevard Peripherique from the Citroën plant at Levallois-Perret where the donor car would have been built.
Agnelli, who began his career as an antique furniture restorer, set up his Agnelli Milano Bici business in 2015.
