Not to be underestimated when you are fully loaded! However, buying an electric cargo bike has a cost, so here are some tips on how to choose the right model.

The different electric cargo bikes

There are different types of electric cargo bikes, to suit all types of use. Cargo bikes are particularly well suited to electric bikes. They offer you considerable assistance in moving around on this heavy vehicle (between 30 and 55 kg), to which you can add loads of up to 200 kg on certain models!

Two-wheelers have two wheels and a loading area between the steering column and the front wheel. Three-wheelers are the most common electric cargo bikes: they have three wheels, which are positioned differently depending on the brand. Models with two wheels at the front offer more comfort and stability and are ideal for carrying passengers. Models with two wheels at the rear are more suitable for transporting goods. 

There are also the longtails, which have no cargo box, but only a reinforced luggage rack at the rear that can accommodate a secure seat. It offers plenty of space, which is handy for taking up to 3 children or bulky luggage with you. Finally, there are also compact electric cargo bikes, which are no longer than 170 cm. These models have two loading areas: front and rear. They allow you to transport children as well as goods, and to get through traffic easily, but also to find a parking space more easily. 

How to choose your electric cargo bike

The choice of your electric cargo bike will depend on what you intend to carry with you, but also on the nature of your daily routes. If you're wondering which electric cargo bike to choose to transport your children and you're riding in the city, we recommend a two-wheeler with a front bucket. It has the It has the advantage of being narrow and therefore easy to handle, especially for getting through traffic or climbing a kerb. If you want to transport up to 4 children or have groceries next to your 2 children, opt for a three-wheeler instead, which offers a larger load capacity.

Although the purchase of a cargo bike represents a certain cost, there are cheap electric cargo bikes, such as the Velocargo Longtail R500 from Decathlon. Upway also offers used electric cargo bikes that have been reconditioned by us.
