I would like to transport e-bikes and 3 of them weigh approx. 70 kg, plus the weight of the bike rack. can I carry approx. 80 kg on the ahv? Thank you very much

I have a Thule 2 bike carrier and I only need the “non-electrical tow hitch” according to a Fisker rep at the Orlando pop-up event. The carrier is an Helium Pro 9 (can hold 3 bikes) with a max load of 112 lbs. I believe the Ocean is rated to tow 4,000 lbs. so 80 kg shouldn’t be a problem.

The number you are looking for is the tongue weight, or the maximum downward force/weight the hitch can support. Thats unknown but I'm sure it's at least 350 lbs or 160KG or so. Likely its much more than that so you are fine.

While we know the towing weight, we don't know the tongue weight.  It's usually 10-15% of the towing weight (2040 lbs/1090 kg for Sport, 4000 lbs/1815 kg for Ultra/Extreme).  I would guess around 200-300 lbs for Sport 400-600 pounds for Ultra/Extreme, which easily works with any accessory like a bike or cargo carrier.
