Today Aventon announced its first ever e-cargo bike, the versatile and functional Abound.
Available for pre-order today, the Abound marks a big step for the eBike producer by expanding into new form factors of micromobility. Aventon has already made a name for itself in the ebike world by producing affordable and reliable products such as the Aventure, an all-terrain fat-tire e-bike, and the Level, a classic commuter. Now, the company looks to bring the same build quality that they’ve become known for to a load-carrying vehicle.
Aventon’s Abound will be joining a growing market of e-cargo providers large and small, such as Rad Power and Lectric, who we’ve gotten to know on The Micromobility Podcast. While Aventon is not the first major eBike producer to delve into e-cargo models, it is clear that the company has taken its time to develop a trustworthy vehicle capable of carrying precious cargo, including an additional passenger. Furthermore, this news is coming just a month after Aventon announced a permanent price reduction across all of its models, demonstrating their strong commitment to managing their production and maintaining affordability.
We’re thrilled to see a big player like Aventon tapping into the e-cargo market, as e-cargo bikes possess an even greater potential than normal eBikes to replace car trips for families and delivery workers. Considering Aventon’s strong relationship with large retailers, this bike is sure to make a splash. Now let’s take a closer look at the all-new Aventon Abound.
