Best Cargo Ebikes That Are Still Affordable 2023. Rad cargo bike

The Rad Power Bikes RadWagon Is E-Cargo on the Cheap. It’s Also Brilliant.

Legit e-cargo bikes used to cost used-car money. Now there’s little reason to spend a dime over 1,500.

By Dan Roe Published: Aug 19, 2019

The Takeaway: The Rad Power Bikes RadWagon is a reliable e-cargo steed for thousands less than competitors.

best, cargo, ebikes, affordable
  • A powerful direct-drive hub motor and throttle give you a scooter-like ride when you want it
  • Integrated lights and fenders get you right out of the box
  • Single frame size fits most riders, but isn’t ideal for everyone

Price: 1,499 Weight: 73 lb. (claimed)

If you’re considering the Rad Power Bikes RadWagon against your traditional e-cargo options from Tern, Yuba, Xtracycle, Riese Müller, and others, ask yourself whether you’d rather have a little more torque and refinement or 3,000. That’s the price differential between the RadWagon and its direct e-cargo competitors. After a couple months of riding the big, bright orange thing, I can report that I’d buy one and keep my 3,000.

That’s not to say that the RadWagon is a sketchy budget e-bike, although you’d be right to find the pricing incredulous. The 750-watt Shengyi direct-drive hub motor isn’t as torquey as comparable mid-drive systems, but the bike easily climbed the same hills where we test other (mid-driven) cargo bikes. You get mechanical disc brakes instead of hydraulic; the difference felt negligible. The rear cargo deck is long, providing space for massive panniers or a series of compatible Rad Power Bikes cargo decks and child seats (although they’re not always in stock).

Not all cost-saving measures go unnoticed. The jumps between cogs of the 7-speed freewheel are vast compared to higher-end 10-speed drivetrains, which makes power delivery harder to control, especially on a cadence-sensing system (as compared to torque-based sensors on mid-drive systems). You find more exposed cables: Rather than being integrated into the battery, the entire motor controller is out in the open. The holes drilled through the planks on the rear cargo deck and running boards don’t all match up. And the frame comes in only one size; at 6-foot-2, I maxed out the seatpost, which doesn’t bode well for taller riders.

But the RadWagon is a utilitarian bike and I barely cared about most of these complaints while using it on a daily basis. For the purpose of loading up the panniers (and racks, if you mount them) and riding from point to point, the RadWagon is no less capable than any other (4,000 to 6,800) e-cargo bike I’ve ridden.

5 Things We Love About the RadWagon

Big Display

The unit shows speed, distance, pedal-assist level, wattage, battery level, and an odometer.

Integrated Lights

Never worry about forgetting your lights—the headlight and taillight use power from the battery.

Twist the grip-based throttle to get 750 watts on-demand.

Big Motor

The Shengyi direct-drive motor is quiet and provides a sustained 750 watts.

Cargo Deck

It might not be recommended, but you can put an adult on the rear cargo deck and running boards.

How Is This Bike So Cheap?

We had the same question, so we put it to Rad Power Bikes cofounder Mike Radenbaugh. The company launched the RadWagon at 1,800 in 2015 and has been working to get the price down ever since. The direct-to-consumer model cuts out markup from dealers (and puts the assembly burden on you), but the company also takes advantage of scale. “(The price) is based on a lot of standardization work and high volume, working with manufacturers,” Radenbaugh says. That explains why there’s only one frame size, and the Shengyi hub motor drive system costs significantly less than a name brand mid-drive system. Selling a lot more e-cargo bikes than niche e-cargo firms helps, too.

Pedal Assist or Throttle

Unlike most e-cargo bikes, the RadWagon gives you the option to use either one of five pedal-assist modes or a throttle on the right side of the handlebar. A 12-magnet cadence sensor on the drive side of the bottom bracket picks up your pedaling input and doles out e-assist accordingly. Power delivery isn’t as fluid as it is on torque-sensing systems, but the cadence-sensing design gives you full power from easy, fast pedaling. I think this behavior makes the RadWagon easier to ride than a mid-drive e-cargo bike because you don’t have to pedal very hard to get a full effort from the motor. That said, reviewers from other outlets found the system jarring compared to riding a pushbike, so you might not enjoy it as much if you prefer your e-assist to feel more like regular pedaling.

The range from the 48-volt battery largely depends on terrain. I averaged around 35 miles per charge, but my cumulative home-work-home-work-home-work route included more than 2,000 feet of climbing. I reckon you’d get more than 40 if your route is mostly flat. The battery indicator is annoying: Rather than just telling you how much charge remains in the battery, it estimates how much charge you might have if you continue using a certain level of assist. For instance, climbing a half-mile hill on medium assist, I went from three bars to one, and then the display unit told me the battery would soon be dead. Accordingly, I switched to the lowest pedal-assist level to make sure I wouldn’t have to pedal the 73-pound bike over the hill by myself. But when I crested the hill and began descending, I got my three bars back. In other words, don’t trust the battery indicator on undulating terrain.

best, cargo, ebikes, affordable

Reliably Equipped

The RadWagon comes with a 1×7 Shimano Altus drivetrain. There’s an 11-34t freewheel instead of a cassette—there’s no room for a freehub body next to that big hub motor—and the 34t climbing gear is handy for steep hills. The Tektro mechanical disc brakes use 180mm rotors and stop the hefty bike with ease; I never felt myself wanting for hydraulics during testing. Handy cockpit details include an on/off switch for the throttle and a bell that’s integrated into the left brake lever. The e-bike-specific tires are 2.3-inch-wide Kenda K-Rad’s with a puncture-resistant liner and a reflective strip for visibility.

Included accessories include integrated front and rear lights, fenders, a double-legged kickstand, and a clear plastic cover for the rear wheels to keep cargo or children’s dangling feet from hitting the spokes. Minor gripe: The kickstand’s legs don’t have a rubber coating, so they’ll scratch up wooden floors.

Ride Impressions

This spring connects the fork to the down tube and keeps the bike in a straight line when you’re not actively steering (although it’s barely noticeable when you are).

The RadWagon is 79 inches long and weighs as much as a 10-year-old, but despite being an absolute beefcake, it handles surprisingly well. In the interest of real-world testing, we took it to an abandoned golf cart path and thrashed it up, down, and sideways around the twisty course. It felt akin to street-racing a minivan, but the practical hauler was adequately maneuverable. During actual commutes, it’s stable when loaded down yet zippy enough to shoot gaps in traffic.

The running boards make it easier to carry human cargo. Note that your friends will affect the handling, though.

The direct-drive motor is quieter than mid-drives (there’s only one moving part) and never felt underpowered. It’s not as capable up steep climbs as a Bosch, Yamaha, or Shimano system, but I could still climb a sustained 8 percent incline at 12 to 14 mph on the highest pedal-assist setting. A thermal limiter in the controller reduces power if the motor gets too hot, preventing you from cooking the motor on extended climbs. The throttle gives you full power on-demand but needs some pedaling input to keep the bike moving uphill. Everywhere else, pedaling isn’t strictly necessary.

The company lists 20 mph as the top speed, but selecting 28-inch wheels within the display unit’s settings boosts the e-assist limit to 24 mph. There’s also regenerative braking; when you descend past the 24mph e-assist ceiling, the bike doesn’t pick up speed as quickly as you’d expect because the motor is recycling kinetic energy to recharge the battery.

Panniers aren’t included, but these Rad Power Bikes bags become even more cavernous when you unroll the top. I fit two Honda Accord headlight housings into this bag with room to spare.

Radenbaugh says he’s not trying to build the absolute best e-cargo bike. Rather, he wants to be the Volkswagen of the market, bringing reliable transportation to the masses. Cost has always been a limiting factor for adopting the e-cargo life, and the RadWagon makes that lifestyle attainable for a lot more people. On top of all that, it’s an amusing bike to ride—to punch a throttle and zip about on a 73-pound hunk of orange aluminum is invigorating, certainly more so than sitting in traffic. For 1,500, you can feel it for yourself.

Best Cargo Ebikes That Are Still Affordable 2023

When it comes to car replacement, there is no better suitable type of ebike than cargo ebikes. In this list of the best cargo ebikes, we wanted to share our top picks for families or those who just happen to want extra cargo capacity. From power to efficiency and to affordability this list provides an array of options if you’re on the hunt for your first or perhaps next ebike. Let’s get into it.

Best Cargo Ebikes Review Video

First, let’s talk about the Lectric XPedition. This ebike is quickly becoming known as the best value ebike on the market, and for good reason. It starts at just 1,399 for the 14Ah single battery version and 1,699 for the dual battery 28Ah model, making it the most affordable cargo ebike in existence with its almost-too-good-to-be-true price. The battery capacity is absolutely unheard of at this price, and depending on when you purchase, Lectric throws in some free accessories but also has a slew of other options.

The XPedition has Zoom hydraulic disc brakes and a powerful 1310-watt peak motor, which makes it perfect for hills while hauling cargo. The bike can reach speeds up to 28 mph while pedaling or 20 mph while using the right-hand twist grip throttle. Additionally, the bike has some impressive payload capacities, making it a great option for those looking to carry heavier loads.

The Lectric XPedition is also known for being easy to assemble due to Lectric’s FOCUS on the customer experience. They’re also known for their solid customer service, which is a big plus for those who may need assistance in the future.

Cargo ebike with suspension and torque sensor: Aventon Abound (2,199)

Next up is the Aventon Abound. This bike is priced at 2,199, making it slightly more expensive than the Lectric XPedition, but it has some features that may make it worth the extra cost. For starters, it’s easily the best looking, but still affordable cargo ebikes on the market. The Aventon Abound has a sleek frame design that is sure to turn heads.

One of the main differentiators of the Aventon Abound is its torque sensor. This measures pedal input and gives you more motor power as you put in more of your own effort, resulting in a more natural riding experience. Additionally, the bike has a name brand SR Suntour suspension fork, which is the only bike on this list to have front suspension, providing a smoother ride. The Aventon Abound also has a dropper seat post for ease of mounting and dismounting.

The bike’s 15Ah battery is hidden nicely into the frame, and Aventon states up to 50 miles of range. The torque sensor helps to eke out that extra range due to the efficiency gains of how the motor is engaged. The Aventon Abound also has premium touches throughout, including a color LCD screen, turn signals, and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. The motor is 750 watts but peaks higher than that and is plenty powerful, with a max speed of 20mph with the throttle or while pedaling.

The Aventon Abound has a total weight capacity of 440 lbs with 143 on the included rear rack. Aventon also offers some high-quality accessories, including a frame bag and footboards. The bike comes in two colors, and Aventon has dealerships around the US so you can buy it in store or online, whichever you prefer.

Most comfortable for taller riders: Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 (1,999)

We like to lovingly call this the minivan of ebikes as it is the cargo ebike we currently use (and have since 2018!). The Rad Power Bikes RadWagon is not only still our favorite but Rad Power Bikes is the largest seller of ebikes in North America. It has heaps of accessories available to add plus it just keeps getting better and better with multiple iterations. It currently costs 1,999 and is offered in three colors: orange (above), black and white.

Like most ebikes it’s heavy at 76.7 lbs which something to consider when purchasing a cargo ebike. As with all Rad Power Bikes, it is a Class 2 ebike that reaches speeds up to 20 mph with the right hand twist grip throttle or pedal assist. It has a 48V 14Ah battery (672 watt-hours). Range in our experience will be 20-50 miles depending on conditions, rider weight, cargo, throttle usage etc.

This ebike accommodates a range of riders from 5’1″ – 6’4″ and is ideal for riders with a 24.5″ – 36.25″ inseam. This is accomplished with the new telescoping seatpost on the RadWagon 4 which helps riders be in an ideal riding position while still keeping the center of gravity low.

Going the extra mile for safety this ebike meets the international and U.S. standards set by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and the European Committee for Standardization. As it is the minivan of ebikes, accessories are a must when it comes to family-friendly rides with deck pads, child seats, caboose, front rack, small/large baskets, panniers, and much more all available for sale. The RadWagon has a 350lb total payload capacity and 120lb rear rack capacity for kids or cargo.

Second most affordable cargo ebike: KBO Ranger (1,699)

The KBO Ranger is unique for a few reasons. This powerful bugger with a shorter wheelbase is the most affordable compact cargo model on this list with a price tag of just 1,699. Enjoy a 35-60 mile ride with this 48V 17.5Ah (840-watt-hour) battery, sized a bit larger than the average.

It powers a 750-watt rear hub motor which peaks at 900 watts giving it the extra power that is needed to keep this 77lbs going up the steepest of hills. It is a step-thru design with a minimum seat height of 27.5″ and a standover height of 15.7″. Note that taller riders above 6′ tall may not be able to get full leg extension and riders may want to add an adjustable stem to further customize riding position. The KBO Ranger has a 400 lb weight capacity.

The Ranger is outfitted with a Shimano thumb shifter and rear derailleur, as well as mechanical disc brakes with 180 mm rotor. A bright LCD can be found on the handlebars and integrated lights can be found on the front and rear. This ebike does have wider tires with a thickness of 20″x3″ to make up for the fact there is no front suspension. A front rack is available for purchase along with a rear “fence” to help keep passengers safe.

Check out the full review we’ve done here.

Well-priced with dual batteries: Blix Packa Genie (1,999)

The Blix Packa Genie has some features that other cargo ebikes simply don’t have on this list: a dual battery option and hydraulic disc brakes. The base model is well priced at 1,999 and the dual battery option is 2,399. Color options are white, gray, and teal.

Out of the hub motors on the list, the Blix Packa Genie is rated at the highest output of 1,350 watts (750-watt nominal). With unmatched performance, this sleek and speedy ebike fits a wide range of riders of 5’1″ – 6’3″. According to Blix, with the dual batteries (1228 watt-hours) riders can expect up to 80 miles on one charge. Compared to other models on the list, the Blix Packa Genie has a thumb throttle and a twist shifter instead of a twist grip throttle and thumb shifter.

LED lights are integrated into the front and back for safety. You’ll also find puncture-resistant tires with reflective tire sidewalls, included running boards, dual kickstands, and fenders. For those looking to customize their Blix bike more, racks and baskets are available along with the “VIP Section” and rear seats. The Blix stands out for its brakes, motor and battery capacity still at a reasonable price.

Best quality accessories: Flyer L885 (1,999)

Does the Radio Flyer red wagon bring up some childhood nostalgia? To say Radio Flyer has expanded their product line since then is an understatement. The Flyer L885 is another great cargo ebike for the family and kids. A

vailable in three colors: black, red, white, and blue and three different sizes (small, medium and large) this beauty costs 1,999. Due to its various frame sizes, the Flyer L885 might just be the most accessible cargo ebike on the list fitting riders from 4’10” – 6’6″ rider.

Max rider capacity sits at 220 lbs with a total capacity of 400 lbs (the rear rack is rated at 150 lbs). The bike comes with a 48V 15Ah battery, but you can add a second battery for twice the range. It boasts a 500-watt motor with Class 2 speeds up to 20mph. Added safety features include a classic integrated bell as well as a LED headlight and taillight. Unique to the Flyer L886 is the 26″ x 3″ wide tire in the front with a 20″ x 3″ tire in the rear to help keep the weight distribution low.

Flyer has an excellent section of available accessories for the Flyer L885. Our favorite? The Kid Cargo Carrier for its Smart design for hauling kiddos and zipping it up for a grocery run.

The best cargo ebike you can buy: Tern (2,999 – 9,000)

Tern is the undisputed premium cargo ebike brand with Bosch mid-drive motors. With over ten options, they’re awesome ones to consider if you have a higher budget. Since tern has gone so deep into the cargo ebike category you can pick the model that suits your needs the best. The cost is significantly higher than the others on the list due but you won’t be disappointed. range from 2999 – 9,000.

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review: An electric cargo bike that ticks (and carries) all the boxes

The Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 builds on the success of earlier editions of this heavy-duty, all-electric cargo bike. It’s also one of the comfiest two-wheelers you can ride, and with plenty of power, it’ll get you where you want to go, whether you’ve got a sizeable payload on board or not.

  • Improved ride performance
  • Design further optimised for the purpose
  • Excellent build quality
  • – Needs space to store

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review in a sentence: A brilliant new incarnation of this all-electric heavy hauler now is now even more comfortable than before.

I’ve owned an earlier edition of Rad Power Bikes RadWagon for a few years now, and if you’re the sort of person who needs to get stuff, including people, from A to B, then it’s hard to beat. The earlier version of the two-wheeler is perhaps a little less refined and has larger wheels and narrower tyres. As a result, if you’re transporting any major weight, this can be noticeable in the quality of the ride (not in a good way).

Enter the Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4, which is the latest iteration of this chunky cargo bike. It has smaller diameter wheels and beefier rubber, all of which means it’s more capable than ever when it comes to heavy hauling duties. Of course, if you’re not in need of a battery-powered cargo cycle, then there are plenty of alternatives, as the best electric bike guide here at T3 illustrates. But read on to find just how useful this cargo carrier could be if you’re in the market for one.

Remember that before you hit the road on any new bike, check out the best bike lights and best cycling helmets, so you can be seen and stay safe on your new investment. In the meantime, here’s more detail about this fantastic electric cargo bike.

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review: Price and availability

You can buy the RadWagon 4 directly from Rad Power Bikes for £1999 / US 1999 / €2299. The good news is they have a great infrastructure set up, so it doesn’t matter if you’re shopping from the US, the UK or elsewhere for that matter. It’s well worth checking out their website to get an angle on shipping costs that might be affected by where you live. My model arrived in black, but there are orange or white frame colours, too, if you prefer.

The best bit is that Rad Power Bikes sells a selection of add-on accessories, such as running boards and a deck pad if someone is going to be sitting on the back. There’s also the ‘Conestoga’, which is a cover for keeping your shopping dry. Cargo-carrying aids include a front-mounted basket and a front rack, depending on what you’re going to be lugging around.

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review: Design and build

The cargo bike is a common sight in the cycling utopia that is Holland. They’re less easy to spot in countries with real hills, however, because these bikes are heavy. The main reason for that is obviously the extra bulk that comes with building a bike that’s aimed at getting things from one place to another.

So, the first thing to consider is the weight of the Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4, which is just under 50kg (approx. 110 lbs), but it can handle a total payload capacity of 158kg (approx 350 lbs). That’s quite a lot, and while it can be ridden without power assistance, the 672Wh battery pack and 250W geared hub motor combination is an essential part of the package.

Rad Power Bikes have tweaked the design a little, with a honed frame style that accommodates those beefy wheels and 22” x 3” tyres that have improved ride quality a lot.

Elsewhere, Rad Power Bikes has stuck to a tried and tested format, so many of the components seen on earlier versions of the RadWagon remain in place. There’s the running gear, which is 7-speed and Shimano-based, handlebar controls and a trip computer along with the saddle, which is as comfy as it ever was and can be easily adjusted without the need for tools thanks to its quick-release lever.

The same goes for the handlebars, which can be tweaked thanks to the new addition of another adjustable lever. I’ve always been impressed with the build quality of Rad Power Bikes models, and the RadWagon 4 is no exception. It’s all very good, indeed.

I spent some time during assembly picking my way around the RadWagon 4 and, if anything, the quality of the build and components seems to be better than ever, including really good Tektro Aries 180mm mechanical disc brakes that can stop the bike with ease, even if it’s loaded down with cargo. One thing to note is that there’s a knack to getting it out of the box – I found putting it on its side and edging it out the easiest option and also the best way to avoid scratching any paintwork.

Once out, the bike needs pedals added, the handlebars to be put into position and the front wheel attached. Other than that, it’s a case of fine-tuning the saddle position, checking everything is tight and you’re good to go. Charging the battery before the first fun is also recommended. The other great thing about the RadWagon 4 is Rad Power Bikes sells accessories, like a cushioned seat for the cargo deck and running boards for feet.

In fact, there are numerous add-on accessories that can turn the bike into a people/children carrier, including a caboose for little ones. Folks should most definitely not be carried on the bike without these official approved accessories, however.

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review: Riding experience

The Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 is slightly different to ride compared to the previous model that I already own. Those smaller wheels and fatter tyres do actually improve the feel of the bike, and they’re certainly more than capable of handling larger payloads. This is a very easy bike to get ready for the road because all you really need to do is turn on the ‘ignition’ using a key on the side of the battery.

From there, it’s a case of pressing the middle button on the left-hand side of the handlebars and choosing an assistance mode using the up and down tabs. These simple controls allow you to turn on the included front and rear lights – there’s taillight illumination that shows when you’re braking, too, while the levels of assistance can be tweaked on the move too. A twist throttle on the right side, meanwhile, allows you to squeeze more power from the motor.

The riding position is upright and casual, while gear changes are seamless thanks to the Shimano hardware. There’s a selector on the ride side of the handlebars to go up through the gears, while a button underneath allows you to swiftly click back down through them. It’s basically the same setup as my older bike, and it’s good to see Rad Power Bikes has stuck with something that works so well. I’ve never had a problem with this arrangement.

It’s possible to get up to 44 miles/72 kilometres from a charge, although this diminishes if you’re transporting lots of heavy stuff or carrying a passenger. Recharging is a simple affair, with a charger cable that plugs into the side of the battery pack. This can be done with the battery on the bike, or you can remove it if preferred.

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review: Verdict

I’ve carried all sorts on my earlier version of this bike, and the RadWagon 4 seems every bit as good as that. I’m also very relaxed about just how durable this bike will be, having used its predecessor for several years. I haven’t even had to tension the long chain at all, which is a part of the design caused by the longer wheelbase of the cargo bike setup. So I’ve got no worries about the build or the quality of the RadWagon 4. In fact, I’d say it represents cracking value.

If you weigh up what you can really do with the RadWagon 4 – it’ll handle your weekly shopping excursion. For example, if you’ve got the right rack accessories on board, then you can leave the car at home for starters. Got kids who need a lift? Get the right passenger accessories, and you can use the RadWagon 4 to do those runs too.

This is such a great all-rounder; it’s definitely one of my favourite bikes of the moment. Storage might be an issue for some, but if you’ve got space, then a Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 makes a lot of sense.

Rad Power Bikes RadWagon 4 review: Also consider

You might think electric cargo bikes are a bit niche, but their popularity is rising. They can be a great alternative to taking the car, and with the ability to carry a heavier payload, these bikes are great all-rounders. What you can buy when it comes to cargo bikes does depend a little on your location. Rad Power Bikes sell all over the place, but other names to look out for are Urban Arrow with its Family Electric Cargo Bike (retailer link) or the Tern Quick Haul P9, to name but two.

There are big-name players in the cargo bike market too, like Specialized, which has the Globe Haul ST (retailer link) to consider. Aventon, with its Abound model, is also worth a look, while the ludicrously-named Benno RemiDemi 100 (retailer link) is like a short-wheelbase edition of a cargo bike if space is an issue for you.
