At Urban Drivestyle, we design electric vehicles for a urban future yet to come.
We want our cities to become less car logged, safer, quieter and cleaner. And our projects and products are our way to be part of the solution to create better cities for all of us.
We like to give our vehicles classic and vintage looks, simply because we want to make them more attractive, fun and cool but also as a tribute to the 50ies and 60ies, where most people rode light and small vehicles or two wheelers.
Why we designed DUO Moke like a tiny car
We always loved cargo bikes and we always planned to make our own version of what we think would be a real cool hauler for an urban environment. We sort of needed to empty our brains first, in order not to step into the "big bicycle with a huge box" trap and needed to start all over with the thinking process... What did we really want? Who would be using it? How could it be used in 1000 different ways?
That was our must have list:
Honestly, all we wanted was a tiny, legal, easy to maintain, low weight, low power pedal car! Just enough weather protection to get to work dry, just enough structure to feel protected and just enough space to carry groceries, a second person or 2 kids... And so small it can perked anywhere without problems...
All of that packed in a compact, yet cool looking vehicle that would NOT make you look like you were just about to head for yoga lessons after having a cup of mate tea in an overpriced coffee shop...
So what is it?
Duo Moke is a simple, rugged electric cargo/ passenger electric bike made of Chromoly Steel tubing and a aluminum top structure. The frame structure is welded and the cabin part is fully removable and can be modified very easily to suit different needs (Child transport, cargo, delivery).
The advantages of a velocar are immense:
Because Duo Make can be operated as a 25 kph cargo bike, it is considered a legal bicycle. So you all the great advantages of todays bicycle infrastructure and laws:
DUO M0ke has a small engine in each rear wheel, taking away most of the peddling work and it can carry up to four 20 Ah batteries for a range of up to 200 km between charges.
How does it ride?
Simply fantastic! We never rode anything so close to a Kettcar since... super stable, very tight turning radious, no tendency to ever feel unstable.
How much will it cost?
We really do not have exact numbers as of now, but are planning to sell the basic platform at around 3.900 USD.
Stay tuned for more information about this amazing UD project, we will definitely take it further!
