As organisations across the Liverpool city region look at ways in which they can reduce their carbon, the recent announcement that £400,000 has been made available to buy ecargo bikes is great news for those businesses specifically looking to switch to a sustainable transport solution. With funding covering up to 40% of the total cost, (up to a maximum of £2,500 for two-wheel models and £4,500 for three-wheel models) now is the ideal time to consider if this is a good alternative for your business, particularly as more than one organisation can apply as part of a joint ‘high-street’ application, which is ideal for small businesses looking to make a change.
Colin Trigg, Director of E-xplore Bikes has long been a champion of e-bikes and has welcomed the announcement, explaining why investing in a quality product is so important:
“When we hear the phrase “quality German engineering” most of us picture a Porsche, BMW, Mercedes or Audi car, but more and more demanding German consumers are turning to ecargo bikes from equivalent high quality German brands like Riese & Muller, Kalkhoff and Cube. Just like their cars German quality doesn’t come cheap, but this new grant offers a great opportunity for businesses to make an affordable switch away from diesel and petrol vans to an e-cargo bike. Investing now could help you cut costs in the longer term as well as improving air quality across the city”.
