Cambridge Electric Transport

Through continuous urbanisation, it is anticipated that by 2050 there will be as many people in cities as there are on the planet today? In order to manage this extreme growth and the increased levels of pollution and congestion urbanisation is creating, we require scalable and extendable technology to increase the efficiency of urban flow – as well as make carbon-free cities achievable.

Cambridge Electric Transport is dedicated to developing urban transport solutions to meet these challenges.

Our core concept is the CitiPod, a pedal-assisted ultra-lightweight electric vehicle based on e-bike technology. Because it conforms to EU regulations for e-bikes, it can be deployed immediately on existing cycleway and road infrastructure, delivering a zero-emission urban transport solution that will also minimise traffic congestion. See here for more details.

In addition to developing the CitiPod, CET is providing the following range of products and services:

  • Staff travel advisory and management services for employers;
  • Cycling community support services such as the Campus Cycling Hub at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus;;
  • E-bike sales and rentals;
  • Specialist velocycle sales.
