I just bought a Lectric XP Light https://lectricebikes.com/collection...e-lectric-blue

I haven't put it in the baggage compartment of my 7 but I believe it will fit just fine. It weighs 48 lbs and folds. I can ride it 30 miles on one charge. I weigh 190.

Default E-bike in an 8

depending on the frame size you will most likely have to pull off the front fork and handlebars. I have transported my large frame gravel bike in the back the rear seat back would need to be removed and I would highly recommend removing the rear stick. I was constantly worried about something shifting into the stick at a bad time.

This^^. Not sure about ebikes, but a full size mountain bike will fit pretty easily in the back with other camping gear. Definitely remove the stick!! I pull the entire front fork assy, leaving the handlebars and all shifters/brakes intact. Then wrap the pieces in a shipping blanket and bungees.
