IKEA needs no introduction since it has already won over people’s hearts with more than 460 stores in 63 countries. Their flat-pack furniture is the favorite of hipsters, budget-savvy shoppers, and practical minds alike. Now, IKEA is taking its commitment to sustainability even further by testing a new delivery scheme that utilizes solar-powered electric cargo bikes! It’s an exciting way for them to join forces with nature while providing convenient services to customers.

IKEA has recently taken a step in the right direction with their Delft store introducing an electric cargo bike powered by solar energy. This fabulous three-wheeled pedal-powered machine is capable of making deliveries within city limits, demonstrating that IKEA understands the importance of sustainability and eco-friendly practices. What’s even better is that this method allows access to roads and alleyways which would otherwise be inaccessible for cars or delivery vans, establishing a remarkable level of doorstep convenience.

IKEA’s cargo e-bike trial in The Netherlands was an immense success, prompting their global franchisor to promise a full scale on the initiative. According to Helene Davidsson, sustainability director for IKEA Systems BV, Move Electric reported that this Sunrider bike model has enough cargo capacity for approximately 90% of IKEA’s product line and emits 98% less CO2 than any modern diesel van–talk about eco-friendly.

“The solar-powered cargo bike is an advantageous asset to last-mile service, as it provides a silent and pollution-free solution that can avoid traffic delays,” said Davidsson. “This vehicle does precisely that” he added confidently.

IKEA’s ambition to become carbon-negative by 2030 is the driving force behind its trial of the cargo e-bike. Not only are they striving for net zero emissions, but also hope to produce a greater environmental benefit by taking more carbon dioxide out of our atmosphere. Additionally, IKEA has promised to upgrade all medium and heavy-duty vehicles that exceed 7.5 tons in key markets worldwide with zero-emission EVs before 2040 arrives.
