Cannondale has today announced the release of two brand-new e-cargo bikes. Which sees the brand entering the e-cargo space for the first time.
The two new Bosch-powered e-cargo models are called the Cargowagon Neo and the Wonderwagon Neo. Cannondale says the bikes offer easy solutions to everyday challenges such as carrying children and transporting all kinds of equipment. As well as providing a sustainable, easy-to-use alternative to public transport or a car.
The Cargowagon Neo is, as the name suggests aimed at carrying cargo and luggage. It features an aluminium frame but has a 200kg+ max weight capacity. A range of accessories for the Cargowagon such as panniers and racks will also be available.
The Wonderwagon Neo is the bike Cannondale says the whole family will be able to enjoy together. With a 250kg max weight capacity, the Wonderwagon has child seats up front to help little ones as well as a rear rack, box shelves, rain cover and built-in frame lock.
Announced last November but included in the launch is the Compact Neo e-bike. A compact, alloy-framed urban e-bike that features 20-inch wheels and a Hyena drive unit. The brand says the Compact Neo combines compact size with unmistakable Cannondale style and can easily be stored at home or the office.

Within the grey high-sided cargo box at the front of the bike are two front-located and forward-facing child seats which use five-point harnesses and headrests. An additional rack at the rear can also fit an additional extra seat.
Cannondale also appears to have packed in plenty of tech elsewhere and the Wonderwagon features an SR Suntour Mobi 80mm suspension fork, as well as a Cannondale dropper post which the brand says aids getting on and off the bike. At the front two dual headlamps deliver 260 lumens each and are powered by the Bosch motor.
