The e-cargo bike grant scheme may now have closed, but the market for delivery e-bikes goes from strength to strength.

It's an exciting time for cargo e-bikes and trikes. As businesses begin to recognise the benefits of making local deliveries by cargo bike - not to mention families using them for the school run - manufacturers are responding with a range of innovative, van-beating, designs.

The Fulpra is a Dutch-built electric cargo trike with a generous 3,000-litre cargo capacity, and a tilting system that promises the smooth riding characteristics of a conventional bike; even when lugging a payload of 350 kg.
