Baltic delivery firm Omniva is to test the use of Ligier Pulse 3 electric three-wheeler delivery vehicles for delivering mail and courier shipments in Tallinn.
The pilot project is to run from this month until February.
Omniva’s Pulse 3 three wheeler has already been used by delivery firms in Belgium and France. They have been imported to Estonia by OÜ Autosõit.
“In Estonian conditions, the suitability and reliability of electric mopeds is definitely an issue, which is why we are testing them in the autumn and winter period,” said Jaak Saar, Head of the Delivery Network Unit at Omniva.
Saar added: “Electric mopeds combine the speed of motor vehicles and the silence and environmental friendliness of delivering on foot, making it the best tool for mail carriers.”
The parcel carrier at the rear of the Omniva EV moped has the capacity of up to 55 kilos, while 20 kg of parcels can be carried over the front wheel. In addition there is a bag for dividable materials by the knees of the delivery person, and there is additional storage under the driver’s seat. The Pulse 3 is charged from the standard power network (650W @ 220V AC) and no additional charging systems are required.
The Pulse 3’s maximum speed is 45 km/h. In the city, with around 10 stops per km, is around 30km. On the open road this increases to 50km. Typically an Omniva mail courier will have a 15-20km route so the range is ample.
