Your best option overall will be the Kuat NV part # NV22G. It is a 2-bike platform rack that can accommodate a 24 inch diameter wheel with the adapter # 016-025-00-00 is lighter weight for a platform rack at 52 lbs, has a weight capacity of 60 lb per bike which you'd need for an E-bike and can be expanded to a 4-bike rack with the add-on part # NA22G.

It's hard for a bike rack to cover all the things you mentioned but this rack does so and is considered to be one of the nicest bike racks on the market so we recommend it highly!

I attached a review video for this rack for more info as well.
