Hi, Im looking to purchase a electric bike for riding to work and around town. I'm thinking a Pedego is going to be my choice. Any thoughts or suggestions ? Thanks!

Lots of factors to consider. How far is you commute to work? Are there steep gradients? How much do you weigh? budget? The speed of the bike is also a factor.

I'd definitely check out easy motion, and the new haibike sduro line, assuming your budget is under $3k, message @Crazy Lenny Ebikes if you narrow your choice down to a couple of models for a quote (just a happy customer here). Pedego does a lot of advertising and is one of the first brands you'll start seeing when researching, however there are much nicer bikes for not much more money out there.

I agree with Ken.
XU 700 is superior in everyway.
3 year warranty, better handling because of mid mounted battery, better drive components, suspension fork, nice saddle...
If there was a choice between pedego and OHM, it's a no-brainer.

Also check out the A2B Alva+ with a 17A battery. Comes with a full throttle which can be used in conjunction with pedal assist. Heavy but built like a tank. $2799

I am really considering a similar bike. My choice is narrowed down to the 2016 izip e3 dash and the haibike sduro hard seven. I know they are slightly different bikes, but my main use would be around town. The izip has everything stock that I would need to add the the sduro.

What are you thinking you'd need to add to the haibike?
I would need to add a rack, fenders and lights to catch up to the dash. And even then it wouldn't be able to hit 28mph like the dash. Plus you can add a boost button (throttle type add-on) for $50.

Consider the Pedego Stretch. Even if you don't need the cargo capabilities. I found that the Pedego Stretch had a great riding position and was very comfortable and stable.

I have an 2015 Haibike XDuro 29 and I get 45-50 miles range in Econ mode, carrying my 270 pounds powered by AARP certified lungs and heart. And I occasionally turn up the power for extended hills in my life long struggle with The Law of Gravity.

You need to compare the bikes in person and ideally riding each. Hai's are awfully impressive in person. It's a noticeable step up from an Izip (both Currie lines).
