Cargobikes vs motorized commercial vehicle
At rush hour, the bicycle is much faster than the car (over a distance of less than 5km). In addition, the bike is very manoeuvrable and easy to ride. As for the car, it is subject to the vagaries of traffic. As a result, the average speed of a bicycle in the city is 15 km/h, compared to 14 km/h for a car.
The major disadvantage of the car is the difficulty of parking. A study shows that, on average, motorists spend 40 minutes a day looking for a parking space. This is only 2 minutes for cyclists.
The most important expenses for a commercial vehicle are: gas, maintenance and parking. This represents an average budget of 30.000€/year. For the bicycle, the cost of using it is divided by 100! (300€/year: no insurance, no petrol…)

That’s why replacing your utility vehicle with a cargo bike allows you to maintain regular physical activity and do good for your body and mind.
On average, a car emits 114g of Co2 per km travelled, compared to 0g for a bicycle. This mode of travel has a significant impact on CO2 emissions and air quality. It is therefore important to encourage its use.
