According to Zypp Electric, the Zypp Cargo is built with last-mile logistics in mind and can haul up to 250 kilograms of cargo while boasting a range of up to 120 kilometres on a single charge. To further support the demanding and busy schedule of last-mile logistics, Zypp Electric has designed their Zypp Cargo with provision for an additional battery and battery swapping mechanism to avoid the long charging times of EVs. The battery in question is a 40Ah unit.
Akash Gupta, Co-Founder & CEO of Zypp Electric was quoted as saying, “With extensive research for more than 3 years, we are extremely happy to launch Zypp Cargo, India’s first B2B Heavy Duty IoT enabled Electric Scooter today. This is an exclusive product with a strong OEM tie-up.”
He went on to say, “It will offer an easy ride experience combined with design sensibility that adapts to varied cargo requirements. With its durability and unique design, the after-sales service will be available all across the operational cities. Soon we’ll launch this on an EMI ownership plan too.”
In terms of design, the Zypp Cargo uses a metal body with a limited number of plastic panels and this maximises durability. The scooter uses a split seat for added flexibility where the rear seats can be opened to fit crates and bags.
There is also a large coloured digital display panel and it is enabled with modern technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) to track vehicle position, battery usage, driver statistics, etc.
According to Zypp Electric, the Zypp Cargo can be easily integrated into IT systems of logistics partners, e-commerce companies and food delivery operators. This facilitates real-time business intelligence such as distance covered, usage parameters, average utilisation, wear and tear, etc.
