The original Electrolux Ergorapido was released in 2004. It was launched in red/brown colour, only, and was an immediate succes. There was no product like it on the market with such good design and function. It quickly became a great seller.

During 2006 some new colours and a few technical improvements were launched. But in 2007 a new generation with great improvements were launched. The design was changed and the perfromance and scution power was greatly improved. Also the filtration was improved.

In 2008 special editions in black and white were launched, ans soon afterwards more improvements were developed. LED lights to give better sight to when you clean in dark corners and under sofas, were introduced. More importantly, the range was extended with 18 V Li-ion batteries during the autumn of 2009. In some markets these models were named Ergorapiod Plus.

During 2011 the first Ergorapido Green, made in recycled plastic was launched.
