The Haul ST and Haul LT models sold in the USA are perhaps one of the best electric cargo bikes, and since March of this year the brand has introduced their equivalent, the Turbo Porto model, to the European market. It's one of the most powerful bikes on the market, with 710Wh batteries and 90Nm of torque that deliver up to five hours of continuous driving. The bike weighs 39.6 kg without load, and the maximum weight with load reaches 200 kg. Its length is 2.065 meters. The Turbo Porto features belt drive, front and rear lights, an integrated Garmin Varia radar system, a robust anti-theft system and a 44-litre polyester additional side bag that can hold up to 25kg of goods. If you want to carry children instead of cargo, you can easily equip one or a pair of seats with safety rails and footrests. The price of this bike is quite comparable to the cost of a small car and is $8,999 (5500 pounds sterling / 6400 euros).

And you get all this for $1,799.

The Turbo Levo will cost you quite a bit (10,700 euros), but it would be strange if one of the best eMTBs didn't have a hefty price tag. Specialized has a 2.2 drive with an impressive 90Nm of torque and a 700Wh battery. The Mastermind display shows you battery status, as well as altitude, your jump data, and GPS data. This beauty weighs 22.9 kg, has a mixed wheel setup (29″/27.5″) and a stroke of 160/150 mm.
