Mobility service provider SIXT adopts ONOMOTION’s e-cargo bikes, paving the way for cleaner and seamless urban mobility

Find out how SIXT has teamed up with ONOMOTION, one of our portfolio start-ups, to integrate e-cargo bikes into their fleet. The ONO bikes are emission-free and offer customisable cargo space, a 50 km range, and weather protection for riders, making urban transportation more convenient and cities greener and less congested.

The challenge

SIXT is an international mobility service provider with around 2,000 locations in more than 100 countries, providing individuals and businesses an alternative to vehicle ownership. In line with its sustainability ambitions, in recent years SIXT has significantly increased the proportion of electrified vehicles in its rental fleet and has recently teamed up with ONOMOTION to offer an agile alternative for its customers in busy urban centres.

The solution

ONOMOTION, a Berlin-based e-mobility company, has designed an e-cargo bike that combines the flexibility of a bicycle with the capacity and durability of a van.


ONO e-cargo bikes have a range of approximately 50 km on one battery charge (1.4 kWh). The batteries are replaceable, meaning additional batteries can be carried to increase the range. Cargo storage volume is over 2m 3 with a capacity of up to 200kg. The storage space is also customisable, for example for shelves and load securing. The cargo bikes can be used on cycle paths and in low emissions zones and provide protection from the weather for riders.


As part of ONOMOTION’s sustainability vision, it produces its vehicles according to the cradle-to-cradle principle of circularity and 97% of its suppliers are based in Germany or neighbouring European countries.

The impact

SIXT is the first mobility provider in Germany to include the ONO e-cargo bikes in its commercial vehicle fleet. In 2023, SIXT began trialling 15 ONO e-cargo bikes in Berlin and Magdeburg. During the 12-month trail, the vehicles travelled 20,000 km within the two cities.

SIXT offers the e-cargo bikes as part of its rental portfolio for private customers, for example as a sustainable option for transporting larger items such as weekend shopping or large-volume items from the DIY store; and for its business customers as sustainable addition to their own fleets, with the option of exterior customer branding. Since ONO e cargo bikes are emission free, they have full access to low-emission traffic zones and green spaces.

“With the ONO e-cargo bikes, we provide our customers with a flexible and sustainable vehicle for urban transport. Due to our shared values, ONOMOTION is the perfect partner for us: We wholeheartedly support the traffic shift towards sustainable mobility and focus on innovative solutions.”
