Best Affordable Electric Bikes of 2020

Budget conscious? Here are my top picks for best affordable electric bikes of 2020. You can have confidence in the capabilities of these ebikes. You’ll notice that I don’t go too cheap with these winners, because I’ve found that the very cheapest products do not use reliable or replaceable parts, and they usually lack warranty and customer support. My chosen ebikes have more dependable motors, batteries, and drivetrains. When comparing affordable ebikes, it’s wise to rely on common sense; “you get what you pay for” and “if something seems too good to be true, it probably is”. These top three picks are summarized below. For more details, including why I chose each model, check out my full list of the best affordable electric bikes.

Best Folding Electric Bikes of 2020

Folding electric bikes are popular for their compact design, which allows easier transport and storage vs. full sized ebikes. They usually fold in the middle, at the handlebar, and the pedals, becoming small enough to fit on boats, RVs, and private planes. In addition to providing powered assist, electric folding bikes need to be tough enough to be laid on their sides and jostled around during transport. Whether you’re a traveler or just limited on space, here are our top picks for the best folding ebikes of 2020. See all the details and even more winners on our best folding electric bikes page.

Best Class 3 Electric Bikes of 2020

Class 3 Electric bikes are a specific regulatory classification of ebikes in the US and Europe. A class 3 electric bike provides motor assist while the rider pedals up to a speed of 28mph, which is close to the speed a fit cyclist can achieve without assistance. Class 3 electric bikes are increasing in popularity with riders who prefer a faster ride to keep up with traffic, reduce commuting time, and to expand their traveling range. Due to their increased speed, class 3 ebikes are restricted some bike trails and bike paths. They are sometimes referred to as speed pedelecs, because they rely on pedal assist to achieve the higher top speeds. See all the details and even more winners on our best Class 3 electric bikes page.

Best Electric Cargo Bikes of 2020

Electric cargo bikes encourage you to do things and go places you could not before. Take the people you love and stuff you need wherever your heart desires! Well, as long as there’s a road or path ;) Doing more is what electric cargo bikes are all about; the electric assist smooths hills and shrinks distance while carrying more. They are a healthy, affordable, and versatile alternative to automobiles. Perfect for hauling kids and all the stuff that goes with them, they are also great for carrying sports equipment and running errands. Cargo ebikes come in many shapes and sizes. Longtails are the original flavor! Basically, they offer a long rear section of frame with sturdy built-in top rack and running boards that allows cargo, child seats, and adult passengers to be loaded up. Box bikes, also called long johns or bakfiets (Netherlands language there), are an even longer variation of cargo bike configured with a big box upfront and a smaller front wheel connected by a linkage. Many companies are experimenting with midtail cargo ebikes (shorter than longtail but longer than a city bike), fat tire models, and even three-wheeled versions called cargo trikes or rickshaws which can carry loads in the front or back. This is a pretty awesome category! For more details, including why we chose each model, check out our full list of best electric cargo bikes.

Best Electric Road Bikes of 2020

Electric road bikes are the sports cars of ebikes. Different than most electric bikes, the motor is used to enhance the riding experience vs. giving you a ride. They amplify your pedaling efforts, taking you faster and farther. Historically, viewed as cheating, assisted pedaling on road bikes is now embraced. Beyond going farther and faster, electric road bikes can help riders transition back after illness or injury and compensate for limitations allowing continued participation in group rides without fear of hills, headwinds, or falling behind. Stealthy electric road bikes are the sexiest with batteries integrated into frames and sleek motors that are barely noticeable. We call these ebikes “stealth” because they fly under the radar, so to speak ;) Road bikes, recognized for their dropped handlebars, are transformed into electric gravel or adventure bikes on wider tire and handlebar versions. This is a pretty awesome category! For more details, including why we chose each model, check out our full list of best electric road bikes.

Each product covered on ElectricBikeReview.com includes a full list of specs that we measure by hand, an extensive album of photographs, and a detailed video with ride footage. You can compare any of our reviews side by side using the “Add to Compare List” checkbox. We’re doing our best here to serve the community, covering hundreds of electric bikes each year! For more help, visit our independent electric bike forums and share your height, weight, budget, intended use, and other details, so our moderators and members can give you some personalized feedback.

If you’re completely new to electric bicycles, check out my introduction video, which explains why I started EBR back in 2012. I’ve also posted an informal interview with my uncle Greg, who has been riding a full suspension electric mountain bike to work in Colorado, rain or shine, for several years! EBR makes money by listing shops on our directory map, charging for a limited number of promoted bike slots that will get more visibility, charging a nominal fee for our reviews (to help cover the costs of travel and production), and getting some money from YouTube ads that play before our videos. We believe in transparency, and appreciate your visit here! Good luck, ride safe, and thanks for visiting :)
