It was only a matter of time before the global car brands began reacting to cargo ebikes as they may substitute the small cars and smaller vans for last mile delivery.
The VW cargo ebike offers a maximum payload of 210 kg including a rider and goods loaded on the platform in the front. The electric motor is mid mounted and assists up to 25 kph.
According to Volkswagen the cargo ebike has a unique tilt-levelling technology for smoother riding and prevent damages to the transported goods. In 2019 the VW cargo ebike will be launched for sale.
