Pre-sales of City-KURT CK1

The City-KURT CK1 is a novel type of personal electric vehicle, a perfect blend between a e-bike and a micro-car. You can drive it without a license on pavements and bicycle paths respecting the speed control limits. You can bring along up to 50 kg in the large trunk or choose a customised vehicle that fits your specific needs.

Optionally, when communication between a dispatch center and the driver is desirable, a smartphone with app can be provided. This allows to monitor a fleet of vehicles, monitor the vehicle status and provide help or give instructions.

The City-KURT CK1 is electronically controlled. It has two active wheels that provide for easy manoeuvrability and fast acceleration. Its powerful batteries can cover up to 50 km. They recharge during the night or when parked. KURT provides the lowest air and noise pollution at the lowest energy cost, yet it takes less space than standard vehicles.

The City-KURT CK1 can also be customised for different usages and equipped with stronger motors and more powerful batteries if needed.

Personal vehicle: small and safe, take it for short trips to visit friends, family or to go shopping.

Personal golf cart: small and comfortable, use it on the golf course and carry your golf equipment.

Food delivery: transport the pizza and food orders in an insulated cargo box.

Emergency services: in crowded areas a fast intervention is difficult. Use a small CK1 and quickly drive with emergency equipment to where help is needed.

Professional services. For those who provide services at home and need to carry basic equipment. With the CK1, you can get anywhere.

Light Logistics. Last mile deliveries for parcels and mails.

Security services. Patrolling the streets or sites and taking essential equipment with you.

Pre-sales orders are now accepted. Listprice: 9990,- euro (excl. taxes for the standard model).  Regional restrictions might apply. Volume production will start when a minmum number of orders has been received. Contact us for more details.

KURT is a breakthrough for Light E-Vehicles

Peter Harrop, Chairman of IDTechEx market research company : “Years ago I pointed out that the 100 or so manufacturers of car- like specialist electric vehicles should not design every one from scratch but have a common platform. Look at the Polaris Industries leisure, military, industrial etc four wheelers. They make no attempt to standardise. Look at the sales figures for the Renault Twizy that should be modularised into ATV, AGV, mobility for the disabled, runabouts in mines with roll bars and ruggedisation and Airport Ground Support Equipment GSE (Charlatte, Stewart & Stevenson etc). All design every vehicle from scratch. The industry is ridiculously fragmented. For example, Bradshaw has only a few million pounds a year turnover in its hand made industrial vehicles. Altreonic’s KURT vehicle is one of the first that has the potential to overcome this uneconomic fragmentation”.

Dr. Bodo Schwieger from Team Red (an international consultancy firm on mobility and transport), stated in an interview: “Amongst the mobility solutions of 150 providers we evaluated, the modularity of the KURT concept is unique”.
