Welcome to the forum. We want to know your criteria for choosing your ebike. What is your intended purpose (commuting, purely exercise with some fun, mountain biking, relaxed beach cruising, etc...)? How many miles per ride do you intend to do? What is your weight bracket? How much are you willing to pay? How much of a handy-man are you or do you want good warranty coverage and accessibility to a shop that covers warranty repairs? Do you frequently ride on very steep inclines? Do you have a medical condition such as back pains that would make a full suspension ebike a better option? Are you OK with the standard 20 mph cut off speed or do you want to pay extra for a class 3 ebike with 28 mph capability? If you already did your preliminary research, what are the list of ebikes you already have in mind?

Addendum: Your location information would alsohelp since different places have different range of available brand options.

Not be critical but best quality standards is not an appropriate criteria for purchasing an eBike. You need to examine what you will use the ebike for, how far you will go, how often you will use the ebike, the weather in your area, your level of fitness, your physical limitations et. al. Once these are identified you can begin to select those ebikes that meet your criteria. The first and foremost consideration is frame geometry and how comfortable the bike fits your body. If you examine the issues above and determine whats important to you, the community can then recommend products. Quality components do not necessarily translate into quality ride.
