This week on Electrek’s Wheel-E podcast, we discuss the most popular news stories from the world of electric bikes and other nontraditional electric vehicles. This time that includes Amazon’s new delivery via cargo e-bikes, Bafang releasing a new internally geared hub for bikes, the potential for USB-C e-bike charging, an awesome new European-built electric scooter called the Äike T, SONDORS Metacycle shipments, and lots more.
This week the podcast is sponsored by Tern Bicycles, who recently released the Quick Haul to make quality electric cargo bikes more affordable.
