EXCLUSIVE SALES FINANCING PARTNERSHIP FOR ONO E-CARGO BIKES
Schweinfurt-based financial services provider Mercator-Leasing becomes a set premium partner of Berlin-based mobility service provider ONOMOTION to jointly offer innovative, reliable and urban mobility solutions
The European mobility service provider ONOMOTION develops and produces high-quality e-cargo bikes that can now be rented by delivery services, public institutions and businesses. In addition to products and services, financial solutions for financing sales in the B2B business are becoming an increasingly important part of the sales strategy. The overall offering, including financing, determines success, competitive edge and customer loyalty.
“With ONOMOTION, we are expanding our portfolio in the e-cargo bike scene and transferring our know-how to the proven managed service contracts. We see an enormous growth market here in inner-city delivery traffic, which represents a particularly sustainable and ecological alternative in urban traffic,” says Thomas Weber, Sales Manager at MLF Mercator-Leasing GmbH & Co- Finanz-KG. “We also offer an all-in lease for this product. This allows ONOMOTION, at the request of the customer, in addition to the procurement of the object also service, maintenance, support or e.g. also the consumables in the contract in a rate to integrate and thus an all-round carefree package to offer,” continues Weber.
With the ONO E-Cargo Bike, ONOMOTION offers a completely new type of urban vehicle that offers maximum efficiency, maximum driving pleasure and, above all, comfort thanks to its full encapsulation. In addition, it can be used without a driver’s license, in any weather and even on bike paths. The interchangeable container offers fast and exible loading capacity, especially for delivery drivers in local traffic. With this cargo bike, ONOMOTION is implementing its vision of a livable and healthy city and new mobility cycles.
The ONO, an electric transporter classified as an e-cargo bike, combines the flexibility of a cargo bike with the loading capacity of a small delivery truck. The ONO can carry a load of up to 200 kg. Equipped with two step-switchable electric motors, two replaceable batteries and a digital fleet management program, the electric bike can cover a distance of up to 60 km. The weather-protected cabin allows Infarm growers to use the bikes year-round. The insulated container modules keep the products fresh during delivery. The ONOs will be deployed from Infarm HQ in Berlin-Tempelhof, where the batteries will also be charged with electricity from renewable sources.
“We are proud to offer our customers Mercator-Leasing as a reliable partner for our Vehicle-as-a-Service, our format of all-in rental contract for the ONO. The previous experience of the cooperation and the feedback from our customers has encouraged us to further expand this partnership,” said Beres Seelbach, CEO of ONOMOTION GmbH.
