AVNSON puts folding e-cargo bikes on the road

Combining the strength of a cargo bike with the convenience of a folding bike, AVNSON, a mobility start-up based in Hamburg, presents the Long John Urbanox and Urbanox-Mini e-cargo bike models. Offering a unique solution for environmentally friendly and efficient transport, these models are now available for order and will hit selected specialist dealerships from May.

Emission-free, practical goods and passenger transport, flexible connected mobility and a lack of storage space in urban centers are now possible to combine in everyday life and when travelling: After four years of development, numerous prototypes, and rigorous testing, AVNSON is proud to unveil its EFBE-approved models to the public. Featuring a patented folding system, the Urbanox and Urbanox-Mini adapt to urban infrastructure in under 40 seconds, allowing for space-saving storage and transport.

The Urbanox cargo bike comes in three variants, all of which can be folded without removing the basket:

  • Urbanox A: Adjustable in width with detachable hinged doors serving as a practical basket, perfect for bulky items.
  • Urbanox V: Offers versatile transport options for daily needs, from shopping to equipment.
  • Urbanox N: Features a large expandable bag, offering flexible usage as a practical rucksack.


Crafted from heat-treated 7005/T6 aluminium for exceptional durability and lightness, all Urbanox models boast a Shimano drive for powerful assistance. The modular adapter system ensures compatibility with various drive systems, allowing for easy upgrades or replacements without necessitating a new bike. The bottom bracket position does not change. Similarly, the AVNSON battery system favours modularity, accommodating all standard rechargeable batteries on the luggage rack plate. Equipped with a cable steering system and 20-inch wheels, Urbanox models are designed for a permissible total weight of 200 kg. The concept focuses on utilising the cargo area effectively to reduce overall bike length.

Urbanox-Mini: Compactness redefined for urban commutes

The Urbanox-Mini, featuring a rear hub motor, combines the performance of a cargo bike with the compactness of a folding bike. 200 millimetres shorter than the standard Urbanox, it includes a foldable front luggage rack and basket, ideal for urban commuters. The Urbanox-Mini also offers maximum modularity for both motor and battery systems.

Initially available in Germany, Austria, Benelux, Ireland, France and Portugal, the Urbanox and Urbanox-Mini can be ordered now. The Urbanox will be in specialist retailers from May 2024, followed by the Urbanox Mini in autumn 2024.
