In this context, there is no doubt that there is unstoppable growth in the sector. Data from the NPD Group indicate that, after the pandemic, food delivery alone accounts for 7% of total restaurant spending in Spain.
The same consumers who choose delivery for their purchases are the ones who are opting for the most sustainable options on the market. The data speak for themselves:
Currently, most of the world’s energy, including that which powers delivery vehicles, is based on the use of fossil fuels. To understand the magnitude of the problem, the example of the Valley of Mexico is very illustrative: 86% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the metropolitan area come from transportation.

1. The numbers come out
Taking into account leasing, fuel and repair costs, the total monthly cost of a combustion motorcycle for food delivery is around €400. While the monthly cost of an electric motorcycle is less than 250€. The big difference is explained by the fact that the electric vehicle represents a 90% saving in fuel costs and a 60% saving in maintenance. In addition, in the case of electric scooters, the batteries can be charged at a conventional socket, further facilitating logistics for food delivery.
