Also, from the financing he plans to go into production in 12 months. Pre-sales for the utility scooter will begin by then, they say.
Exact pricing hasn’t been determined yet, but the company says “prices will be in the range of about half that of front-loading cargo bikes commonly used by businesses for things like deliveries.
