ExtraEnergy has been testing pedelecs and e-bikes since 1992 in Tanna, Germany. Each year ExtraEnergy carries out Spring and Autumn Tests, each with up to 40 bikes, and these tests are recognised internationally as authoritative benchmarks.

Objectives of the Special Cargo Pedelec Test

  1. To give an informed market overview both for industry specialists and end users.

  2. To raise product awareness through high-impact media partnerships.

  3. To support the further product optimisation by means of the test results, which will be intensively discussed with manufacturers before publication.

Test set-up

The test bikes will be divided into two application categories (child transport and business use) as well as into four vehicle categories: single track, with or without extended wheelbase; multi-track; and heavy transport for payloads over 100 kg.

The test will run under real world conditions at the well-proven ExtraEnergy test circuit in Tanna, which was also used for the first cargo pedelec test in Autumn 2013. ExtraEnergy’s unique and specially-developed measurement technology will gather data during the test rides to determine key metrics including range, power assist levels and drive efficiency.

In a separate Ergonomics Test the everyday usability and intuitive operation of the bikes and their add-ons for child-carrying or business use will be evaluated.

External Experts

The concept, implementation and media work for this special test will be supported by cargo bike experts Wasilis von Rauch (e-Rad Hafen) and Arne Behrensen ( who led the pioneering project „Lasten auf die Räder!“ (Cargo onto Bikes!). There will also be a visitor's day when test participants, experts and media partners will be invited to Tanna for information exchange and networking.


Media partners

Test results for consumers will be published by ExtraEnergy's permanent media partner, the German e-bike magazine Special-E. Complete test results will be published in German, English and Chinese in the ExtraEnergy Test Magazine. The special e-cargobike test will also be covered by journalists writing for magazines for parents, as well as trade magazines for trades people and logistics operators.
