A useful article, thanks. Hauling heavy and bulky stuff is, IMO, where e-bikes really shine, as they're barely slowed in doing so (though range is decreased). It would be have been good though to mention trailers as an alternative or adjunct to e-cargo bikes as they allow one to use a regular e-bike, but have the option to add a large load carrying capacity when needed. Of my two trailers I use the Burley Travoy the most, while the Carry Freedom Y frame is better for heavier stuff, but not so easy to use. The Tern HSD has a dedicated trailer hitch apparently, which has moved up my N+1 list a few places.
