Micromobility rethought: with the “mocci Smart Pedal Vehicles”, CIP Mobility GmbH sets completely new standards for efficient, smooth, and sustainable commercial mobility in urban areas. Developed as a highly innovative micro-mobility platform, mocci breaks with many conventions of the traditional bicycle industry and combines smart hardware, smart software, and innovative materials. The “Smart Pedal Vehicles” offer a completely new riding experience that is customizable to the rider, safe, sustainable, and fully connected. The serial hybrid drive enables chainless and low-maintenance locomotion. The use of recyclable high-performance plastics and the elimination of components and mechanical transmission enable a safe, low-maintenance system. All mocci components are developed and produced sustainably in Germany.

“Our Smart Pedal Vehicles are an innovative, individual, and sustainable solution for companies that want to operate flexibly, quickly, and environmentally friendly in urban areas.

In this way, we question current concepts, completely rethink them and take a holistic view of the topic of commercial mobility in the context of the networked, digital city.”
