The iBullitt Solar Cargo eBike is exactly what every city should have. Currently, these transport bicycles are being embraced all over Europe as an alternative to motorized freight vehicles. In this way, they combat unnecessary traffic congestion and, of course, pollution. Not to mention that they help keep people active.

Developed by Urban-e, the iBullitt Solar Cargo eBike is currently used most by professional couriers. Nevertheless, it can be utilized by everyday individuals for groceries, home improvement and more. Thanks to its electric component, it can carry up to as much as 550 lbs.

The increase in the iBullitt Solar Cargo eBike is owed in large part to the European Union funded pilot project, CycleLogistics, which aims to reduce energy used in urban freight transport by replacing motorized vehicles with cargo bicycles.
