Can it support a 50lb E Bike?

I do have a great option for you, however the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64670 referenced in your question cannot safely support a 50 pound e-bike. While this rack as a whole can support up to 70 pounds total with 2 bikes, it is limited to 35 pounds per bike as this is the maximum weight the individual wheel hoops can handle.

For a Swagman platform rack that can easily support your 50 pound bike I recommend taking a look at the Escapee 2 # S64693. This heavy-duty carrier can handle two bikes that weigh up to 60 pounds each and its pivoting upright arms with ratcheting hooks will hold them by the front wheels without any frame contact. A bike and hitch lock are also included to help protect your investments so these would not need to be purchased separately. It is designed to fit 2 inch hitch receivers.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this rack that you can also check out.
