DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Carqon

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Electric Cargo Bike

INSPIRATION:
We have based our research on insights from the audience of energetic and trendy parents with the ambition and means to get the best out of life in everything they do. Target group exists out of parents between 26 and 45 years old, with dual income and above average disposable income. They are facing urban mobility challenges getting through busy city traffic. The target group lives a luxurious lifestyle, with focus on quality & style. It became clear for us in our research phase that there is a need for a luxury cargo bike with features seen from the car industry.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Carqon wants to offer ambitious parents the freedom and convenience of a distinctive cargo bike which distances itself from the status-quo. Via a stylish, sturdy and thoughtfully designed cargo bike, fully equipped with reliable high-end quality parts. Carqon is an exclusive mobility solution for parents who want to benefit from the freedom and convenience of a cargo bike. Carqon wants to provide parents a mobility solution where they can move in style.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Carqon is based on intuitive driving. The driving experience is like driving any other normal bicycle even though the Carqon is longer and can carry more persons. The interaction between the motor control and the pedal control is also very intuitive. The harder you pedal the more assist the motor will give you.
