Ebike purchase time

Okay done a bunch of research being everywhere blah blah blah just like everyone else.
I was set on a rad Rover but I have a hard time with the single gear. And honestly I'm Petty enough that the Red River plus limited color choice is a deal breaker. I really don't want to Silver bike. I'm not skilled enough to repaint it and that seems crazy. I keep coming back to the himiway Escape but can find no info about it. Here's what I'm looking for:
I'm 6 ft tall with a 30 in inseam. I away from 200 to 220 lb. I want a commuter for about 20 km per day. I like the look of the moped style bikes. I want one with the ability to pedal if need be. I'm trying to stay under $2500.
Escape looks too good to be true since everyone's customer service seems to suck. I know it's going to take a long time to get to me I'm okay with that part that's why I'm looking at ordering now. I live in Canada and wouldn't be driving till at least April.

Hope this covers most of the questions... If not ask away I look forward to your assistance

Are you getting your bikes mixed up? Rad Rover doesn't have a single gear.
Freewheel
7-speed freewheel, 11-34T

I used to be interested in a Rad Rover, then Ripcurrent S, then I decided against a fat tire bike and decided to stick with tires in the 2.2" to 2.4" wide range.

See I'm a dummy. I meant radrunner is single gear.
