Tern launches the Quick Haul, a cheaper electric cargo bike
Tern has unveiled the Quick Haul electric bicycle at a lower price point than its previous electric cargo bikes. The bike has a low-step through frame and a compact design to make it easier to steer through a busy city.
The cargo bike has many places for carrying goods or passengers up to 330 lbs (150 kg). Tern also sells a range of modular accessories so the bike can be customized to what it is carrying, such as the Go-To Bag and Shortbed Tray.
The bike is one size fits all, with an adjustable seat post and stem to suit riders who are between 4-ft 11-in and 60ft 5-in (150 and 195 cm) tall. The Quick Haul weighs around 50 lbs (23 kg) and has a vertical parking feature so you can transport it in elevators or park it inside your apartment.
The bike uses a Bosch PowerPack 400 battery and Bosch motors; the sportier P9 will have 300% assist from a Bosch Performance motor, delivering 65 Nm of torque. The batteries will provide a range of up to 65 miles (105 km).
There will be three models of the Quick Haul available. The D8 will have a 1 x 8 drivetrain and the P9, a sportier Class 3 bike, will have a 1 x 9 drivetrain. Both versions will be capable of speeds up to 20 mph (or 25 kph). Lastly, the P5i will have a Gates carbon belt drive and will initially be exclusive to Europe. The Quick Haul e-bike will be available from Q2 2022, with prices starting at US$2999 (or €2999).
