In any case, it sure is electric mobility
It’s here to stay, even if it takes longer than planned. Proof of this is some of the companies that are preparing for an increasingly promising and sustainable future.
THE bicycle path

What’s the first thing people look for when talking about electric vehicles in general?
Many companies have realized the benefits and advantages electric vehicles
for different purposes. With a greater search for appropriateness to ESG practices (sustainability) and for economy, we have noticed a sixfold growth in 1 year of Cicloway’s rental income for the delivery market, mainly highlighting the use of tuk-tuk, one of our car-boss.

both for the general public and for companies.
The company deals with sales and leasing. Which of these modalities are most in demand? Can you measure each of the categories with numbers and percentages?
Yes, Cicloway works with the sale and rental of mopeds, and the fleet has more than 20 models of electric vehicles for purchase or rent. Among the products are electric tuk-tuks developed with the aim of reducing costs
efficiency and operational sustainability for all market segments.
Light mobility vehicles intended for transports from 1 to 6 people or from 20 kg to 500 kg of cargo
they have a battery that can be charged in common sockets, for about 4 to 6 hours, generating an autonomy of 40Km, 50Km and 135Km, depending on the model.
It is important to point out that we have observed a great deal of attachment to the company, including a greater search for adaptation to ESG practices and for the economy
. We have seen a sixfold growth in 1 year of Cicloway’s rental revenue for the delivery market, mainly highlighting the use of tuk-tuks.
In July 2021, 6% of rent collection
is directed to the delivery sector. In July 2022, we accounted for 36%.

like Mini Segway Lite
and from 86,900 BRL
, Girafa Tuk-tuk – aerial maintenance crane. Products from 450 BRL
, depending on the plan. Rental values are based on the floor for São Paulo.
What is the greatest combination that Cicloway offers on the market today?
Today we serve different types of companies from different segments. We have a variety of clients from delivery companies to animal care companies. But the biggest audience we serve today are security companies and circles
With an electric vehicle, it is much easier for them to circulate inside and outside, without noise and without consuming 1g of CO2. Cicloway has been operating for 17 years in the security market, using segwayi
, when the activities started. In the last 6 years, it has developed new markets such as delivery, facilities, services, gardening, among others.
From a year to now, the representativeness of the delivery has been multiplied six times
and there are very positive prospects for the application of electric vehicles, in deliveries, in microdistribution.
How does the company see the market in the coming years?
We see a delivery market that only has a growth curve when we talk about it delivery of goods to home address
the e-commerce sector is also 100% connected to deliveries.
In this sense, the perspective is only for expansion and this ends up stimulating the growth of electric vehicle delivery methods, because within the last mile (last mile), where e-commerce
it has great power, there is no vehicle that is efficient, economical and can provide better results than a moped.
We believe that, following market movement
our perspective is a blue ocean, with many possibilities and room for the development of other applications that we discover over time, with the insights of our customers.
