Pop-up: Velo E-Mopeds

We're excited to announce that Velo E-Mopeds are joining us at BOXPARK Shoreditch for a week-long pop-up at unit 18.
We caught up with the guys there to find out more about their electronic mopeds.
Tell us about yourself...
Our concept came about in lockdown, having commuted in London and absolutely dreading rush hour - the hot, cramped expensive public transport on top of that bringing into the equation the impact Covid has had on our lives and will continue to do so we wanted to bring a safe, inexpensive, eco friendly way to travel around our cities.
Our roots are in London and Brighton, both at the cutting edge of new movements. Both cities are at the forefront of a green revolution in which fossil fuels have no place. In Brighton, private diesel vehicles will soon be banned from the city centre and central London has extended its low and ultra-low emissions zones.
Where they lead, other urban centres will follow. The Government has also adopted the goal to remove diesel and petrol vehicles from city centres, outlined in its The Road to Zero Strategy.
We believe that the time of the electric vehicle has arrived. E-mopeds offer an antidote to pollution, congestion or relying on public transport. If you don’t have a driving licence, all you need is Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) to get on the road with a Velo e-moped. The relatively low cost of purchasing and running an e-moped makes them a viable choice for a wide range of customers.
The mopeds are so easy to use and super stylish. We hope you love them as much as we do.
Come join the electric revolution.
