In 1998, mechanical engineer Niels Holme Larsen attended a cargobike exhibition in Copenhagen. The following day, a critic from the Danish newspaper Politiken concluded that cargobikes would only be able to compete against cars when they could transport two children and groceries at the same time in a light and stable cargobike. After having read the review Niels decided to build such a cargobike, which resulted in the now wellknown Nihola Bikes.
Today, 20 years after, Nihola develops and produces cargobikes for families, Rehab/handicap-, institutional- and commercial use.We developed and produced 1600 postal bikes in 2011 for the Danish Post and these cargobikes are still in use after 250.000 start and stops.
The goal and vision of Nihola was then to become the market leader and innovator on the Danish market. With more than 10.000 nihola bikes in Copenhagen alone this goal has been fulfilled. The goal and vision is now in 2020 to stay competitive on the Danish market while obtaining higher market shares in Europe and North America – we currently have dealers in 35 European countries, Canada and the U.S.
