Oxygen Cargoscooter, Green Delivery at EICMA 2010

Next week, the Esposizione Internazionale del Ciclo e Motociclo, an event known to the entire world as the EICMA, will become the place to be for all those fans of two-wheeled vehicles. Since there are only a few more days left until the show opens, information about the models to be presented at the event have already begun to arrive.

Among the models to show up for the Milan glamor, electric bikes or scooters will likely be at the center of attention. One such a model, the Oxygen Cargoscooter, hopes to be the star of the show in its segment.

Manufactured by Oxygen, the Cargoscooter is a full electric delivery tool, which can achieve a range of up to 120 km (75 miles) per charge and a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph). The scooter can carry up to 90 kg (198 pounds) of load, making it ideal for post or pizza deliveries.

The scooter draws its power from Saphion phosphate lithium-ion batteries. A regenerative breaking system is in place to help increase the traveling range of the scooter by some 8 to 12 percent.

“For business or for pleasure, choosing an Oxygen vehicle today means making the right choice. Our everyday actions have an impact on the environment and lay the foundations for our future. Oxygen keeps its promises and is constantly looking for perfection, so as to consistently offer its clients the very best quality,” the company said in a statement.

The manufacturer of the scooter will also be bringing the CowScooter special edition version of the model, which sets itself apart from the regular version only by its... paint.

autoevolution will be in Milan next week, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal images of these machines, as well as for first-hand details presented at the event.
