Interesting to see what comes out of this. I hope it will succeed. Revonte has recently partnered with the Finnish e-cargo bike brand Ouca Bikes and they have shipped their first bikes. 

My suspicion is that large bicycle manufacturers lack courage of using these simpler systems because bicycle servicing and spare parts is so important for their resellers. We need more Van Moofs and Cowboys to build crowdfunded bikes that will be sold directly to consumers.
