In West Germany lies the University of Ulm. Here, students can focus on natural sciences and engineering. They also gain the opportunity of working within industry with partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR).


In this partnership, the two worked on an electric cargo-bike. This bike is especially unique due to its innovative fast-charge capabilities. In only 30 minutes, the battery is charged up to 80%. It can also go up to 45 km/h and carry a payload of 100 kg.


Auto Trendy’s take:

The demand for cargo-bikes is growing. Their main purpose in a lot of cases is to carry payload. If charging time can be decreased, then the batteries can become smaller, and the payload could be increased. Innovations like the one discussed in this article will help make cargo-bikes even more mainstream while giving university students the opportunity to innovate and become more visible within their future industry.
