The Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # S64665 you mentioned only has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike, so it wouldn't have the capacity you need, and the truth is, there is actually only a couple bike racks that have the weight capacity needed for a 75 lb electric bike, and those are both for two bikes only. I should also note that an e-bike rack is going to cost more than a standard bike rack, so there won't be any racks in a similar price range. But to carry a 75 lb electric bike, here are your options:

- Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY74FR

- Lets Go Aero V-Lectric FAT PRO Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # LGA77FR

Both will work with your bike's wide tires, and the Hollywood has an 80 lb per-bike capacity and the Let's Go Aero has a 75 lb per-bike capacity.

The issue is that bike racks that hold three or four bikes put a lot of stress at the end of the rack, as well as the hitch, and heavy electric bikes will add too much stress because they sit so far back, so there really isn't an option to carry three electric bikes that weigh as much as yours, outside of a trailer. If that's something you'd like to do let me know, otherwise I have added some links below to video reviews of the above-mentioned racks for you to check out.
