Are the batteries removable and if so, how much do the bikes weigh without the batteries? That is going to be key to determining what bike rack may work. You will probably find that many bike racks are limited to 50lbs per bike and a few are 60.

Our electric bikes are about 62lbs each with the battery (50 without) and we have not found a bike rack yet that is a good match. However, ours are also folding bikes and when we travel we take the batteries out, fold them up, and put them in the back of our toad. That actually works better than the rack as it keeps them out of bad weather is more secure while traveling. We are still looking for a rack as we do have a hitch on the back of our CRV and would like the convenience of using the rack if we are at home and want to go somewhere for a quick ride.

I am using a Kuat Racks NV 2.0. It is expensive, but, does the job. Will hold 2 EBIKES with 27.5 tires at 55lbs each. 5000 miles with ebikes so far.

What I got

Ended up getting a Hollywood rack.
Went back to the place where we got out bikes Crazy Lenny's in Madison.
They were cheapest and shipped.
Plus my wife grew up on Crazy Lenny's commercials from way back when he had a TV & Appliance store.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will let you know how it works out.

This is what we got on Amazon. Works great for our two e-bikes, one with fat tires. We take the batteries off while driving to help reduce weight by 5 lbs each.
