FACOM EM.A, the industrial mobility solution
FACOM and Cobrane Design were able to create the FACOM EM.A with Blanc Tailleur Design R&D’s support for the design.
This electric scooter still has a responsive and reliable handling thanks to its pendular steering and its entirely French production. EM.A is compatible with FACOM’s trunk range and can hold a weight up to 100kg in load to meet all the mobility needs of the service agents with an autonomy of 60km all while being 100% electric. This scooter is CE approved and is extremely secure thanks to its puncture-proof tires and safety speed restriction to 17 km/h.
The Journal des Entreprises dedicated an article to this contract between Cobrane Design and FACOM (article in French).
Cobrane Design, the electric scooter specialist
A great success story for Cobrane, a startup supported by Blanc Tailleur Design R&D from the idea to the manufacturing.
Cobrane Design was created in 2012 by Raphaël Colombié hoping to build scooters specifically made for service agents on industrial sites.
The first version of the Cobrane tricycle was created in Raphaël Colombié’s garage. It was developped with Blanc Tailleur Design R&D, allowing to validate its industrialization. The Cobrane electric tricyles are easy to handle thanks to their patented steering system but they’re also very steady on both ascent and descent, even when fully loaded. It’s a vehicle specifically thought for service agents on production sites, allowing them to move quickly, safely, without polluting the site all while increasing their productivity .
