The bike rack with the highest weight capacity that has a ramp that can be utilized is the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 but it can only handle up to 65 lb E-Bikes and I'm not sure if you'd be able to get your bike down that low.

We do have the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HLY74FR which would be able to carry your 75 lb E-Bike but this doesn't have a ramp so you'd have to muscle the bike up to the bike rack.

Because of this, the best option for your application is to use a motorcycle carrier like the Detail K2 # K2TMC201 or the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. Either way you go you'll need to use some ratcheting straps, like part # EM31353 to help stabilize your bike. I recommend using the Bike Frame Protector # TH984101 to help keep the ratchet straps from making contact with your bike frame.

If the 2019 Kia Sportage you input for your vehicle info is what you have then you also need a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver. For that I recommend the Curt # C13281. Curt does recommend the use of the stabilizer strap # 18050 as well when this trailer hitch is used to carry a bike rack.

Attached are some review videos for you to check out.
