Inspiration
We have based our research on insights from the audience of energetic and trendy parents with the ambition and means to get the best out of life in everything they do. Target group exists out of parents between 26 and 45 years old, with dual income and above average disposable income. They are facing urban mobility challenges getting through busy city traffic. The target group lives a luxurious lifestyle, with focus on quality & style. It became clear for us in our research phase that there is a need for a luxury cargo bike with features seen from the car industry.
Creativity
