ELVITEN Interview Series – KYBURZ Switzerland AG
This is a new interview, as part of ELVITEN interview series, in which we present ELVITEN partner – KYBURZ Switzerland AG, their tasks in the project, and views on Electric Light-Vehicles and urban mobility.
Enjoy the reading!
KYBURZ Switzerland AG develops and produces high-quality electric vehicles for delivery companies, industrial companies, municipalities and private individuals.
The original 3-wheeled KYBURZ electric vehicles for postal delivery have become an integral part of the roadscape in many countries. KYBURZ is an international leader in high-quality mobility and transport solutions for the last mile.
Finding pleasure in development while focusing on sustainability and environmentally friendly methods and products KYBURZ Switzerland AG is looking forward to the future and can build on its solid basis of craftsmanship and many years of experience. The warranty for the service and maintenance of its products is one of the company’s highest priorities as well as being an important line of business.
Tens of thousands of proven KYBURZ DXP delivery vehicles are in use in many European countries as well as Australia. This need-based application of reliable and safe vehicles is requested for collection and delivery at low cost of ownership. It is used in many ways and constantly optimized like every product by KYBURZ.
In addition to the delivery of twenty vehicles, KYBURZ’ part in the ELVITEN project is the transfer of data from all kind of vehicles to the ELVITEN cloud platform. Usage data, motion data, or technical data: the KYBURZ fleet box captures available information of all kind of vehicles like e-bikes or Electric Light-Vehicles and transmit them to a server by mobile network. With this technical service KYBURZ provides the data basis for the scientific evaluations and studies within the ELVITEN project.
As a market orientated medium enterprise which employs around 150 people KYBURZ’s motivation to participate in the ELVITEN project has many reasons: The collaboration with an international team of researching scientists may be one. The practical application and ongoing development of the company’s own data transmission system is a central interest in joining the ELVITEN project besides the connection to different partners with experience in the sharing economy.
Urban as well as suburban mobility as we know it today really calls for new approaches. Traffic space in European cities is limited by the historical development. While maintaining individual forms of mobility, only a reduction in vehicle size and mass and the sharing of transport modes can be a solution. Electric Light-Vehicles (EL-V) will play a major role in this process.
KYBURZ Switzerland as a producer of LE-Vs is constantly gaining new knowledge and experience, which is used in the optimization and development of lightweight forms of electric mobility. At the same time, there are still many questions to be answered in this topic: Does the individual mobility of people follow the same path as the transport, distribution and delivery of goods?
Individual mobility behaviour of many people is very irrational in many different ways. A change in mobility will be implemented by financially precisely calculating companies. Electric Light-Vehicles (EL-V) yet started to be the financially more attractive solution for the distribution of goods in European cities.
Improved knowledge about mobility, as gained in the Elviten project, supplemented with the already existing advantages of Electric Light-Vehicles, will massively change the urban and suburban street scene in the near future. KYBURZ Switzerland is convinced to be a leading partner for this transformation following the Martin Kyburz’s (CEO, founder and owner) words: “Each and every one of us is responsible for positively influencing world events and only when everyone does, we will have the chance to succeed.”

ELVITEN Interview Series – e-Trikala
This is a new interview, as part of ELVITEN interview series, in which George Gorgogetas from e-Trikala SA shares their role and contribution to the project implementation, and views on urban mobility.
Enjoy the reading!
A short introduction of your organisation.
e-Trikala SA consists a Development Company of the Municipality of Trikala which was established in March 2008, while the ICT activity officially begins at 2004 with the operation of the Information Society Office of the Directorate of the Municipality of Trikala. E-Trikala established the first free WiFi network in the city of Trikala and undertook most of the Municipality’s ICT projects and activities. It also started running and participating in new projects, on a national and European level and covering multiple areas of interest such as e-health, wireless networking, fiber optics, mobility, intelligent transportation.
Finally, e-Trikala is a leading partner in a network of ten large cities in Central Greece, called “Digital Cities SA”, which all apply whenever applicable the methods of any successful project/initiative. The dissemination of best practices is one feasible outcome of this networking. The catchment population of these capital cities may reach 1 million citizens, nearly one tenth of Greek population.
What is your task/responsibility in the ELVITEN project?
My main responsibility has been the Project’s management and the demonstrations in Trikala, organizing the events, dissemination activities, vehicle and user management, definition of vehicle usage schemes.
What was your interest in joining the ELVITEN project?
I was already interested in electric vehicles, their eco-friendly approach and usage of new technologies, so I was quite excited to see that Trikala would be part of such a project. It gave me a change to try them and also urge other people to use them and help in getting them known to a wider audience who in other circumstances, would have never tried them.
What is your opinion on Electric-Light Vehicles?
After trying the e-bikes and 4 wheelers, I would definitely want to own one. I want to contribute to less pollution in the environment, but also appreciate the ease of use that they offer. The need to move to greener energy is vital and we are at a point where the technology is more than ready for full electric vehicles to replace traditional ones.
Could you explain the impact of EL-Vs on urban mobility?
In small cities like Trikala, where everyday distances that people travel are not very long, I can see people gradually shifting to using EL-Vs, firstly because in the long term they will cost less as the need no petrol. Their small form factor also makes it ideal for basic city usage. Trikala is already a city where most of the population uses bikes, and so far everyone who has tried an e-bike wants to own one!
What do you think about the future market for urban mobility?
As prices drop and the technology in electric mobility advances, more people make the shift to electric vehicles. In combination with gas prices being much more expensive, I believe that electric vehicles will gain more and more ground, in combination with more charging stations so that people can make full long trips.
