eCargo Bikes

An electric cargo bike, often called an eCargo bike, is an electric bike with purpose-built storage. The bikes come in different shapes and sizes to suit whatever is being transported, whether that be food, parcels, heavy goods and children too!

They provide convenient, affordable and green transport to anyone interested in:

  • Saving money on fuel and running costs by reducing vehicle use
  • Becoming more active and healthy
  • Lowering personal and business carbon footprints
  • Improving the air we breathe

Below are some examples of different types of eCargo Bike.
