PedelecJoey’s Pizza, a chain of pizza restaurants from Germany, delivers pizza by pedelecs. Hereby, it avoids driving by car or moped.In Burgos (Spain) tourists can borrow an electric bike if they leave their car in an underground car park of a museum. In Lisbon, the police use electric powered tricycles and quadricycles. Now they can react quicker to emergencies and can more easily travel greater distances.
E-cargobikeSince 2011, Danish Post uses electric tricycles to deliver containers of packages and parcels to companies. By replacing traditional bikes with electric types, routes can be longer and the need to store packages and parcels lowers substantially.
