There is an old video of a previous version of the Ergorapido, featured in a modern art installation. You can watch it on Youtube
Note: This Ergorapido and the upgrades seems to be plauged by battery problems, and quality issues. Beware, extreme caution needed.
Below you can see a picture taken from an Electrolux website, with a picture of one of the models of the new Ergorapido. The model is called Li-35 (or Li35), has powerful Lithium batteries, improved performance (pick up and runtime!), and a very nice new color scheme. Looks very stylish with the dark accent colours, and is well worth a test.
Turns out that it is part of a new improved range of Ergorapido – featuring all Lithium batteries, and boosted performance. You can also find Ergorapido Li-30 (or Li30), with Lithium battery technology as well. A third version is named Li-21. All still with great maneuverability, self standing function, self cleaning brush roll etc.
This Ergorapido will make your home cleaner and better looking than ever. What color and model would suit you?
An informative video:
I have noticed that in some markets, the model denomination still is ZB30XX (not Li-35/Li-30/Li-21) even if it is the new models. You can see if it is the improved version easily by looking at the granite grey back of the hand unit (vs the previous orange).
More information will follow, when I get hold of that, and have made a test of this Ergorapido. Aku.
Looks very exciting!
See where you can find it around the world.
The Ergorapido has won many design awards through out the years, but in 2014 it got the best ever. It got awarded the Best of the Best award from Red Dot. This is very rare, and very few products get that.
“Ergorapido answers the needs of instant and spontaneous cleaning where & when needed! The design is inspired by wind tunnel testing, giving the product a streamline and sleek look. The 2-in-1 feature was emphasized by slightly offsetting the removable handheld from the rest of the unit, yet still managing to create an impression of unity. Designed to be on display, superior finishes such as stainless steel, have been used to give a sophisticated and premium impression. In addition to a line-up of trendy colours, an eye catching orange accent has been introduced to make Ergorapido stand out on the shop floor.”
