Long Tail! Period. End of story. If you had said any number of possible utility bike assignments then possibly (but maybe not) the answer would be different, but commuting ... errands ... the long-tail is the hands down winner for versatility. This bike is one of the best cargo bike values going. I've put a TSDZ2 mid-drive on it and a big square battery that fits nicely in that opening just behind the seattube. I've had to re-route the rear brake/gear cables because the motor hugs the bottom bracket so closely. Then Covid hit and we bought a house and the project stalled. But it's on again. Just got 8' of brake and gear cable housing.
