The British e-bike brand Volt is collaborating with Deliveroo in a trial that will bring subsidised e-bikes to food delivery riders across the UK.

Volt’s Burlington e-bike, complete with Deliveroo branding, will be offered to “a select group of riders” at a subsidised rate with “various buying options” on offer. The deal will see these riders pay less than 50% of the standard retail price of a Burlington, which currently start at just over £2,000.
