Model T was originally developed in 2000 / 2001 to the Copenhagen based company, Quickshaw, with inspiration from old rickshaws from Vietnam. The founder of Quickshaw asked Lars Engstrøm if he could develop a modern cargo bike for people transportation where the passengers sat in front. This has been a ground-breaking feature since – at that time – rickshaws in Copenhagen were commonly designed with people sitting behind the driver. By having the passengers in the front, the passengers can enjoy the front view, and the driver has direct contact with the passengers.

A social cargo trike

Model T drove in hundreds through the streets of Copenhagen for years by Quickshaw, and most of these trikes are still being used this day. Since then, Model T has developed from being a cargo trike for passenger transportation to be a cargo trike used for outdoor experiences. This development has gained awareness by many organizations which have used Model T as a social cargo trike for many years.

Built to be versatile

The model is especially popular as a social cargo trike for organizations and private persons driving around with seniors enjoying outdoor experiences together. However, the seat can also easily be raised and fixed using the rubber hook. In this way, the cabin can also be used for transporting several and large goods.
