Gaius Auto unveils new commercial electric cargo scooter --- RAPIDE 3
At the 2018 Paris Motor Show, Gaius Auto unveiled a revolutionary new commercial vehicle --- the RAPIDE 3 electric cargo scooter.
The RAPIDE 3 is a remarkable combination of the classic three-wheeled vehicle design and the latest battery technology. It is essentially a three-wheeled utility vehicle which boasts the agility of a scooter as well as the cargo capacity of a light-duty truck.
According to the information shared by Gaius Auto, the company is presently in the process of finishing design and production qualifications for the RAPIDE 3 electric cargo scooter. The sales of the scooter will likely commence towards the end of 2019.
The newly-unveiled RAPIDE 3 electric cargo scooter is equipped with a new kind of lithium-ion battery called Lithium Titanate (LTO). The 5.2 kWh battery pack of the scooter gives it up to 105 km (65 miles) of driving range, and a charge of nearly 80% in barely 15 minutes. The top speed of the scooter is 95 km/h (59 mph).
Furthermore, the RAPIDE 3 electric cargo scooter is capable of hauling a cargo load of up to 440 L (16 cubic feet) or 200 kg (440 lb). With its various rear cargo options, like open beds and refrigerated cargo holds, the scooter will apparently be an excellent vehicle for fleet use and other commercial applications such as transportation and deliveries.
