Why is now the right time to invest in ecargo bikes for your business?

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”.
