Cybex e-Priam

see 7 parent reviews

The Cybex e-Priam is a next generation of the popular and iconic, high-end Cybex Priam stroller. In July 2019, the stroller was equipped with an electric motor and a battery located in the rear axle. Compared to the basic model, the e-Priam is heavier by 2.4 kg. One intuitive, simple push of the activation button with your foot, and you will be helped with pushing the stroller uphill, slowing the stroller downhill, and even offered a smart function of uneven surface support. Thanks to the sensors in the handlebar, the stroller will slow down and stop, if you by accident let go of the handlebar. After 45 km, you will need to charge the battery - the charging time is 6 hours. The e-Priam can also be used without the electric motor function, just like the ordinary Priam.

Apart from differences in the rear part of the chassis and the removable battery, the design of the e-Priam did not change. The ultra-modern look is underlined by the stylish accents; the memory buttons for removing the carrycot and the seat unit; the partly closable shopping basket… You can even personalize it to a certain extent by choosing a different color of the chassis and upholstery, or by picking out one of the limited editions.

The seat is extra padded and can be reclined fully. The center of gravity of the stroller moves slightly when you’re reclining the stroller. You can fold the e-Priam with the forward- or rearward facing seat still attached to the chassis. For maximum comfort in the sun, it is possible to extend the hood with the added sun visor. The fully reclined seat, combined with the newborn insert and the heightened apron changes the seat unit into the Lite Cot suitable from birth, mimicking a conventional carrycot. The Lite Cot is an excellent option, especially for summer babies or for parents with limited storage space, not needing to accommodate a separate carrycot later. You can, of course, opt for the super comfy Lux Carry Cot with the Panorama View and the Sky View functions, where the mesh windows at the back provide not only a better airflow but also a view for your baby. A car seat can be attached to the chassis using adapters.

There are many optional accessories available for the e-Priam. Apart from the basic ones, such as the footmuff, you can even get a child tray or a sibling board. You can also swap the front wheels for fixed, all-terrain wheels or skis if you want to use your stroller on snowy mountains.

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • the lux carrycot is spacious and extremely comfortable
  • the electric function is fantastic for going uphill
  • the footmuff for winter is beautiful; everyone comments on how cosy my son looks sitting in his pram
  • the seat reclines fully so that your baby can lie flat, which means long restful naps
  • the automatic rocking function means that you can keep the pram moving slightly when you stop walking and this can help to keep your baby napping
  • the sun shade doesn't block sun when the seat is fully reclined which means you have to purchase an additional sun shade to use in the summer
  • it's quite bulky and heavy and takes up space in the boot of your car

I had to write a review as all the other reviews of this pram are negative, but I really love this pram.

Initially, I had some trouble with the battery, I really wanted it to work as I live in a very hilly area and often go on long walks uphill, so I contacted Cybex, who immediately sent me a replacement battery and talked me through how to use the electric function. Since then, I've used it daily. I've also used the rocking function to ensure my baby stays asleep when napping which was useful when he was smaller.

When my son was a newborn the lux carrycot was a dream, it was so so comfortable, much more comfortable than our cot and he fell fast asleep every time we went out. It's also the longest bassinet of any other pram I looked at so it lasted our baby a long time and I was so sad when I had to stop using it.

The seat unit is great as it reclines fully and my son loves to nap lying flat on his side, which he can do in this pram.

I will say the only downside for me is that even though it has a big canopy, it doesn't come down fully when the seat is reclined, so in the summer, I found that he was often disturbed by the sun in his eyes, I've since bought a universal sun shade online but think this is a flaw in the design.

  • Poor communication with retailer despite several calls, emails
  • Very expensive
  • Electronic module failed
  • Poor quality

I bought my e priam, paid an absolute fortune for it, and the electronic function stopped working after about a month. I have been chasing the retailer (Harrods) for several months and sent several videos, photos, found a number of faults, really disappointed. We’ve stopped using this pram as we feel it must be unsafe due to all the issues we’ve had. Do not purchase the Cybex e priam, a complete waste of money!!

So So SO nice on hills

  • Super lux and the assistance is so helpful!
  • Price if you don't NEED the e-assistance

So So SO nice on hills!

  • Beautiful
  • Heavy


It was happening to me too...

"I purchased the e priam and the electric part isn’t working, it’s brand new and it was the first time using it. You cannot rock the baby and the electric part doesn’t work. Very disappointed and paid a premium for this pram which doesn’t work at all!"

How did you solved this issue?


  • The Priam is still a great stroller
  • Battery flashes red

Brand new e-Priam, never worked. It is dramatically harder to roll the stroller uphill. I definitely wish I got the regular Priam. I think it is a common problem because they provided a video to "recalibrate" the battery but the issue is still there.

  • I do love the electrical help on going up hills.
  • Love that I can change the front wheels for tougher terrain or the ski front legs. I love this stroller in the winter.
  • The fleece cover truly keeps the baby warm.
  • I like that there’s many accessory options.
  • I’ve even shipped some over from E.U. to the U.S. I love the aesthetics, the design, the rose gold adds such a nice touch. I’ve gotten compliments on it.
  • I love how I can use it as a high chair and with the pandemic, I felt/feel so much more comfortable with my baby eating from the comfort of her stroller/highchair rather than the high chairs at restaurants, often they are not sanitary.
  • I also like how it has a mesh peekaboo window when the canopy is down.
  • I also love the extendible canopy. More than average I’d say. Definitely take lots of use of it for when baby naps. I’m currently struggling finding a traveling stroller with a more than average extendible canopy.
  • I do like the multiple recline positions and how I can switch the seat facing forward or away.
  • I do like how everything is removable to throw in the wash.
  • Almost feels flimsy/squeaking over time. Started squeaking when the baby was less than 6M.
  • The cup holder is not at arm's reach and drops my bottle every so often during my strolls. Perhaps the weight a liquid bottle makes it twists and eventually the bottle falls.
  • The brake is quite hard and loud so when the baby is napping sometimes I rather not put on the brake and run the risk of the baby waking up.
  • During summer time, I would’ve liked some sort of ventilation. My baby sweats very easily and often cried not wanting to be in a stroller due to the heat. I did buy a mini fan and attached it to the stroller to take along during our summer strolls.
  • It was a little of a tough ride at the beginning when she was under 6M. I did put a baby pillow in the cot to help have a smoother ride. The battery often starts blinking red and I have to turn it on and off wait a few seconds and then it works. Sometimes, even if I do this multiple times, it will not work.
  • To the fact that it’s heavy to pick up and load it I think it would be easier to have an easier way to hold it together for easier lifting. I catch myself looking for the stretchy part to hold over the brake area that I just give up and load it without tying it together.

I’ve had the e-Priam for about 1.5y now. It’s quite heavy to pick up and put in your trunk all the time. I’m currently searching for a light traveling stroller. I’ve invested a lot in this stroller and buying multiple accessories for it. I can’t say I completely hate it but do think, for the amount of money it's worth, it could improve in some areas.

Sometimes, when I am turning on the e Priam function, a red light is blinking and the electric part is not working properly. Then, if I am turning off and on several times it works.

Hi, Ash,

The electric part - the battery was never meant for rocking. It is only to help you uphill and to brake when going downhill/when you lose control letting the stroller go, accidentally. Its main feature is to help you push meaning less effort even if the path is going up steep-ish.

About the not working even in that area, you absolutely need to contact the seller and/or the Cybex brand's customer service if it truly isn't working, helping you push, That is why warranties exist - it can be you got a faulty product.

P.S. Leaving a review of your Cybex e-Priam stroller here will help other parents make a good choice, being more knowledgable about the downsides, problems as well as advantages.

Can the e-Priam be used as a double pram?

Hi, Anya,

No, I am sorry, but the e-Priam is only meant to be used as a single pram/pushchair. There is no way to make it a double - even with a buggy board for an older sibling, it shouldn't be used as the battery is on the rear axle, so you may break something using it like that.

For our new born son, we purchased the ePriam. The battery pack - I charge it with the charger and when the charger turns green, I put it into the stroller - but when I turn in on the battery gauge lights are one red is on and then one white. Shouldn't the fully charged battery all white lights should light up? Do we need a replacement?

Hi, Kaan,

From what you're describing, there is probably something wrong with the battery. I would certainly contact the seller you bought your pram at and showed him the problem (in person, or through a video you'd send over there). They will tell you more and should provide a replacement. If no warranty is applicable, just write to anybody who sells this model around you, and ask for a replacement battery.

Hi, Stefa,

you should absolutely consider claiming your warranty if the battery-operated part doesn't work as it should be.
