Cargo Line – the smart system

The smart alternative to the car

The Cargo Line is now part of our smart system. Take advantage of continuous component updates over-the-air, or customise your riding modes on the eBike Flow app. Whatever the conditions, Cargo Line is a constant support: moving heavy loads up steep inclines becomes a breeze.

At a glance

Robust Cargo mode

Cargo mode is specially designed to support the unique requirements of eCargo bikes. You get maximum performance and 400% support - four times your own pedal power.


Safe and comfortable handling

Auto mode ensures you get the right level of support at every point in your ride. When you need to stop, ABS makes sure it's a safe one.

Powerful 85 Nm

There is power of up to 85 Nm behind your eCargo bike, so you can move heavy loads and climb hills effortlessly.

Smart walk assist and hill hold

Walk assist and automatic hill hold ensure you're always in control, even when out of the saddle.

More details

Strong support

Whether you're tackling a steep hill, or pedalling on the flat, 85 Nm of torque and a perfectly tuned transmission provide powerful yet natural support.

Safe riding sensation

Navigate difficult riding conditions with ease: The multi-sensor concept and sophisticated software enable consistent acceleration and give you a smooth, safe riding sensation. The new Auto mode senses the riding conditions and automatically adjusts the level of support. With no need to switch riding modes, you can concentrate fully on the road ahead.

Robust Cargo mode

Specially designed for the Cargo Line, Cargo mode lets you get maximum support from your eBike, namely 400% of your own pedal power. In addition, Cargo mode optimises start-up behaviour: Despite the high level of support and torque, your eCargo bike starts smoothly and pleasantly. Prefer different dynamics or torque? Simply use the slide control in the eBike Flow app to adjust Cargo mode to suit.

ABS Cargo

eCargo bikes place enormous demands on the brake system. The Bosch eBike ABS provides faster, safer, and more accurate braking, even when fully loaded. This way you protect yourself, your load and other road users.

Bosch eBike ABS is only available in the following countries: all countries of the European Union, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Norway.

Smart walk assist

When you need to get off and push, Cargo Line walk assist eases the burden. Press and hold the minus button to activate. As soon as you start to push, motor support kicks in. At the same time, the integrated hill hold function stops your bike from rolling backwards or downhill. Safety is never an issue, even on the steepest of climbs, and setting off on your bike again is effortless.

Easy handling

Save battery power and increase your range: When you cycle faster than 25 km/h, the electric motor and gearbox automatically decouple. This results in minimal pedal resistance and exceptionally smooth handling. Cargo Line is also compatible with shorter pedal cranks. This means better ground clearance and an even safer ride.

Effective technology

Keep your eBike cool, no matter how hard it's working. When pushed to perform, or on hot days, the cooling fins of the Cargo Line keep the heat at bay. With no need to worry about the drive unit overheating, you can push yourself to the limit, even on long summer rides. Cargo Line's compact dimensions and magnesium housing reduce the weight of the drive unit to just 2.9 kilos. This makes your eBike even lighter and easier to handle.

Customise your riding modes

You can fine-tune the Eco, Tour, Sport, Auto, Turbo and Cargo riding modes to give you more support or to use less power.

Here's how it works
