This Dual-Battery Electric Cargo Bike That Can Load Up to 400lbs. Could Replace Your Car

This is the Packa, a full-feature cargo ebike that has a dual battery, a multi-modular racking system, and a total loading capacity of 400 lbs. Built by Blix Electric Bikes, a Santa Cruz, California-based company with Swedish roots, the Packa is considered a “natural car replacement.”

Its total length is only 81’ – slightly longer than a typical bike. It has 24″ wheels and a low step-over frame of only 21,” allowing for a low center of gravity and easy maneuvering. Packa’s smart safety features include an automatic built-in brake light and power cut-off when breaking and puncture-resistant tires.



According to Packa, its dual battery system with an impressive 1,171Wh, uses high-capacity 35E Samsung cells that give up to 70 miles per charge and 25,000 miles of battery lifetime. Its robust rear motor provides up to 750 watts peak output. Its direct-drive technology spins the motor directly without internal gears, thus making it very resilient and quiet.
