    Lolz. Range and ability to carry weight wasn't enough. I do 120kms a day but there are some who do 150kms. You wouldn't do that one one charge and it would take an age. The only way to make it work was to throw the bike on a trailer with mail then set up a hub with the postie returning to that hub several times a day to get more mail. Then trailer back to base. 4 wheel vehicle running would exceed what we were saving with the electric bike.
