This new Volkswagen cargo electric bike designed to carry loads of up to 210 kilograms with zero emissions.
Cleaning mobility is also fashionable when it comes to scooters and bicycles. The former seems to be having a boom lately, with proposals such as Xiaomi’s, but electric bicycles still have a lot to say, and proof of it is the Volkswagen e-Bike Charge, an electric bike designed to carry an extra charge.
It has a different design than usual, away from folding and minimalist concepts such as Peugeot and with a platform to charge beyond what we saw in the basket of the Panasonic electric bicycle. On the other hand, it has three wheels, with a lithium battery and zero emissions, let’s see how Volkswagen’s proposal is.
