Yuba releases news electric cargo bike, the Supermarché

By Stephen Frothingham

COTATI, Calif. (BRAIN) — Yuba Bikes’ new Electric Supermarché builds off the brand’s front-loading cargo bike, the Supermarché, with an electric pedal assist option to consumers.

The Electric Supermarché features a Bosch CX Performance motor, a 500wh battery pack, and is designed to handle more torque, which allows it to power up hills and move larger loads, ideal for cargo bikes.

The company said the low center of gravity on this bike is the key to its easy handling and stability. The bike has cable actuated steering, which the company said “allows for more versatile and seamless steering range, and ease of movement for a bike of its size.”

The Electric Supermarché can carry two to three children and 220 pounds up front or 80 pounds on the integrated rear cargo rack.

The Electric Supermarché will retail for $5,999 and be available to customers starting in September. The company will show the bike at Interbike in Reno next month.
