Who is this bike suitable for?

Meet the mighty but mini compact electric cargo bike that is enormously useful and surprisingly small, the Tern HSD P5i.

This electric bike has all of the core benefits of an electric cargo bike, but still handles just like a normal bicycle. Being lean and nimble and with a low centre of gravity and 20” wheels, the Bosch powered Tern HSD P5i is shorter than a regular bike yet capable of hauling a max gross vehicle weight of 180kg.

With a stronger and stiffer frame than its predecessor, and a heavier-duty rack design that can take up to 80kg, as well as incorporating the all new Bosch Smart System, this improved design makes the Tern HSD P5i an ingenious all-rounder for the weekly shop, the school run, or discovering new areas beyond the city.

Why Buy Tern?

With the world on the verge of auto-mobility, driverless cars and ride-sharing, and with the arrival of electric vehicles, it is Tern’s ambition to help drive this force of change with a collection of electric bikes that take hills, headwinds, traffic and bike thieves out of commuting.

As an urban mobility business that focuses specifically on the compact ecargo and folding sector, Tern’s range of bikes give an unrelenting focus on ride quality and are ideal for commuting and storage purposes.

Whether you have children to take on the school run, goods that need transporting or if you’re loading up your bike for a weekend adventure, look no further than Tern.


Tern is bridging the gap so well now in providing fun and practical mobility that I can genuinely see this electric bike paying for itself on account of how much less I would choose to drive journeys of up to 20 miles (that’d be most of my journeys). Tern could even make an advert depicting me riding up hill, loaded with shopping and passing by static cars and the smile would be 100% genuine.

Key Features

Bosch Smart System

The Tern HSD P5i, now complete with the Bosch Smart System, keeps your eBike system up to date with over the air updates, an eBike lock, customisable riding modes and more.

The Bosch Performance Line motor comes with 75 Nm of torque, and increases your pedaling power by up to 340%.

With a detachable and easy-to-understand Intuvia 100 display, a Shimano Nexus 5 speed internally geared hub and a virtually maintenance free Gates Carbon Belt Drive, the Tern HSD P5i is the perfect electric bike for hauling stuff around!


Bosch Performance Line and 545Wh PowerPack battery

The Bosch Performance Line motor comes with an additional 10 Nm of torque than the previous Performance Line motor from Bosch, and offers 75Nm of torque. Coupled with a 545Wh PowerPack battery, you now have ample range (up to 75 miles) and power for hauling various cargo.


Bosch Smart System

Paired with the eBike Flow App, the Bosch Smart System keeps you up-to-date with over-the-air updates, custom riding modes and the ability to activate your eBike with a lock and an alarm feature courtesy of the Bosch ConnectModule.


Cargo and passenger ready

A large rear rack capacity of 80kg means you can carry one infant or a medium-sized adult passenger, or lots of cargo! Ample accessory options from Tern make the HSD a versatile electric cargo bike for your specific requirements.


Universal in size

Much like the Tern GSD, the Tern HSD can fit riders from 4’11” - 6’5”, and has an easily adjustable cockpit, should you wish for a sporty or more upright geometry.


Shimano Nexus 5 speed hub and Gates Carbon Belt Drive

A Shimano Nexus 5 internally geared hub, paired with a no oil, no grease, no rust solution to your belt, provides a virtually maintenance free and simple yet effective range ratio.

A perfect storage solution

Within fifteen seconds the Tern HSD P5i can transform into a flat package that is ideal for fitting into any SUV, station wagon or bus storage compartment. Similar to all GSD’s, the HSD can be stored vertically, ideal for city living.

Power up your commute

We work with a number of cycle scheme providers to help make the purchase of your new eBike and accessories more affordable. These initiatives allow you to make a tax-free purchase, saving up to 47%, by paying for the eBike and accessories out of your pre-tax salary. Better still, being a salary sacrifice scheme, the payments are taken out of your salary over an extended period (usually 12 months) meaning you get to spread the costs as well!

Speak to one of our specialists about processing your cycle to work scheme.
