For making deliveries to customers, picking up the kids from school or shopping for groceries, Cargo Line, which is designed specifically for cargo bikes, makes transport easy and convenient. Whether or not you are carrying goods, the Cargo Line Drive Unit responds precisely and predictably in every situation. For the 2021 model year, the Cargo Line is getting a software update, giving cargo bike riders increased torque of 85 Nm as well as a more dynamic set-up. The motor now delivers even more powerful support at low cadences – giving riders greater momentum when starting off or accelerating. This makes everyday transport a more relaxed experience and guarantees maximum fun when making deliveries.

Cargo bikes take the strain

With a permissible total weight of 250 kg, Cargobikes can transport large loads and are therefore an alternative to cars

Shopping trips with the eBike are sustainable – even in terms of CO2-emissions

By comparison:

The preparation of a gratin produces many times more CO2 compared to a ride on an eBike

At distances under 10 km eBikes are the fastest means of transport

Cargo bikes are real problem solvers: they reduce traffic noise and parking space shortages

8t CO2 per year  the potential saving when a conventional cargo bike is used to deliver parcels compared to a van
