Cruiser – The Velotaxi, our stable basis for comfortable driving: The Cruiser stands for performance and reliability under the toughest conditions in the field of inner-city passenger transport with electrically assisted rickshaws. Specially developed and designed as a Velotaxi based on motorcycle technology, it more than meets the demands of the users. Our eco-racer combines stability and driving comfort.
Innovative and aerodynamic design: The aerodynamically shaped cabin comfortably accommodates the driver and two passengers with light luggage. The cabin is manufactured using a rotational spin process and is made of 100% recyclable polyethylene. As a mobile advertising medium, the cabin can be completely covered with film.
Suitable for everyday use and easy to maintain: The Velotaxi Cruiser is custom-made down to the last detail. An ergonomic semi-recumbent seat enables an effective power transmission. The 3-gear shift transmits the pedal force to the differential gear of the rear wheels. An upgrade to the Rohloff hub gear system with 12 gears is possible on request. An ingenious steering system allows the extremely small turning circle of the 305 centimeter long cruiser. Hydraulically reinforced disc brakes offer optimal safety in road traffic. A robust textile partition, the seat upholstery and a roof-mounted boarding aid offer optimum driving comfort.
Power and innovation: The Velotaxi Cruiser is a pedelec (EPAC) that combines hybrid muscle power and electric assistance. The 48V motor has a nominal power of 250 Watt, so the Cruiser reaches maximum speed of 25 km/h. The integrated electric motor supports in 5 selectable steps. The Cruiser works with a 48V battery with 2 kWh electrical power.
