Smart solution for municipalities: compact HopOn e-mobile

Developed as an innovative solution for CEP services on the last mile, the all-electric HopOn from CARIT Automotive GmbH & Co. KG presents itself as a versatile helper – not least for working with bulk goods in difficult space conditions. This is because the compact electric transporter has new features specially tailored to work in gardening and landscaping, waste management and park and cemetery maintenance. On March 15, CARIT presented the tipping solution “The Tipper” in the Dutch city of The Hague, where an entire district is being closed to combustion vehicles as part of a series of tests.

The HopOn powered by CARIT is the latest development from the Münster-based company. It is not a cargo bike, but a lightweight electric vehicle with the potential to revolutionize last-mile delivery and make work in gardening, landscaping and green space maintenance considerably easier. The four-wheeled, all-electric vehicle, which is officially approved for road traffic, can be used to transport loads such as leaves, garden waste or street dirt weighing up to 250 kilograms and with a volume of 750 liters comfortably and emission-free, even through the narrowest alleyways in the city centre, through the garden gate or along narrow cemetery paths.

As the innovative electric vehicle is only 84 centimetres wide, it fits through any door. In contrast to cargo bikes, the HopOn is characterized by the use of automotive components, high stability and resilience as well as low maintenance costs. The modular design of the HopOn loading area allows the use of interchangeable containers – including those from other suppliers – and the electric innovation achieves a top speed of either 20 or 30 kilometers per hour. The range with one battery charge is up to 50 kilometers and can be doubled with an additional battery. Thanks to the user-friendly operation of the HopOn and Tipper, both the journey to the construction site and the work itself are quick and easy.

The sustainable HopOn concept is also very popular in politics and business. The vehicle has received special funding from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection and has been recognized as an example of best practice by the Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM).
