Hold your breath! No, not because I want to tell you about how bad the air quality is in our German cities. I’m sure you already know that. But if you find yourself standing on the corner of a busy street with cars, trucks and countless delivery vans zooming past you, I’m here to tell you that there is a ray of hope.

Hold your breath! No, not because I want to tell you about how bad the air quality is in our German cities. I’m sure you already know that. But if you find yourself standing on the corner of a busy street with cars, trucks and countless delivery vans zooming past you, I’m here to tell you that there is a ray of hope.
WORLD CLASS
Here are Beres Seelbach and Philipp Kahle from onomotion. These two visionaries want to make delivery traffic of the future emission free. Although they don’t see an end to the growth of online commerce, they do see a solution for the many traffic jams, the air pollution and the shortage of workers in the parcel industry. And instead of e-cars they developed something even better. Introducing ONO. An e-cargobike that combines the design and technology of a bicycle with the advantages of a classic van.

WE WANT TO LIVE IN A CITY
WHERE THE AIR IS AS FRESH
AS IT IS IN THE COUNTRY.

Beres Seelbach,
CEO & Co-Founder

ALWAYS ONE STEP AHEAD
With ONO, a package can quickly and ecologically complete the first and last mile of its journey. With a battery packing a maximum power of 1000 watts, ONO can zip through the urban jungle at 25 km/h, either on a regular road or on a bike path. This way it’s always one step ahead of any conventional large diesel transporters. In addition, the load wheel with its minimal turning circle is very practical and easy to manoeuvre, both forwards and backwards, and despite the futuristic design, the driver is protected in the cockpit from wind, weather and street hazards.

Design marries technology: Who would have thought that a cargo bike could look so cool and futuristic and solve so many problems at the same time? Photo: onomotion
THE FUTURE’S CYCLE OF MOBILITY
ONO has more to offer than just looking extremely cool, however. The large box, which can easily be taken on a off via an integrated loading ramp, offers 2×3 m of space and can be filled with up to 300 kilograms. The lightweight body also makes a fully laden ONO e-cargobike a master of agility and versatility. This means that it’s drivers can enjoy a much more relaxed ride than they would with a larger transporter. Another big advantage for delivery services is that the drivers don’t need a car drivers licence. Philipp and Beres managed to kill two birds with one stone.

WE ARE ESPECIALLY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE PLATFORM STRATEGY,
WHICH WILL ENABLE US TO MEET ALL OUR FUTURE MOBILITY NEEDS IN THE LONG TERM.

Gwendolyn Schröter,
Investor

THE MIX DOES IT
Are you as impressed by ONO as I am? I just think that this is what the future looks like. And although neither a bicycle nor a van are anything new on our roads, the basic idea of combining the two is truly ingenious and innovative. Bike plus van equals ONO. I love it!
