In this master's thesis, an electric cargo bike for the last mile was developed because that means of transport turned out to be a cheap, sustainable, and feasible solution. During the design phase, a paneled cabin emerged as an equally compact and practical solution. The idea was refined in terms of design. It wasn’t only the loading and unloading that was rethought; modularity was also given priority. This e-cargo bike can not only transport goods, but also people.
