La Carqon classic is an electric cargo bike that aims to set a new standard in terms of design, functionality and technology.
This interesting (albeit expensive) design test integrates a child's door that avoids lifting the child to place it in the trolley: he can climb it himself. The cargo bike "with built-in wagon" also features a safety lock that prevents the scion from opening and jumping out on the way.
The cost, as mentioned, is not the most accessible. Let's say that in my opinion it is prohibitive: it starts at 4999 euros. That's a nice load too, huh.
Lots of load, little effort
With optimum pedaling assistance provided by the Bosch mid-motor and a mega effective range of 120 kilometers, cyclists can pedal smoothly and quickly in everyday traffic. The Carqon trolley is made of a recyclable and very durable HDPE plastic. There are room for two small children and a baby, or all the load you need.
The stability of the bike and its load are guaranteed by the low center of gravity, and the off-road tires combined with the sturdy suspension of the front fork do the rest. Luxury on two wheels, go.
Lots of stuff, no doubt about it. But what a price, though.
To quote the Carqon makers, “even on the roughest roads, your baby will be able to doze off comfortably”. Good. Independence, fun, safety and… style! This cargo bike is available in different color combinations: black and red, black and gray, all black or all white.
I like it very much, I don't deny it. And with the same frankness, I say I wouldn't buy it. At certain prices, an electric cargo bike comes close to an electric quadricycle like the Citroen Ami: if there are children to carry, then I privilege the safety of four wheels. Call me booomer :)
