Heard that eBikes are getting a dispensation from the tariff war.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has ruled that e-bikes fall under the same category as electric motorcycles and therefore share an exclusion, granted in September, from the Trump administration's Section 301 tariffs on Chinese imports. The decision means importers of Chinese e-bikes are now exempt from paying the 25% tariff the administration imposed in August 2018. Importers should be able to collect previously paid tariffs as well.

It sounds like it is still up in the air. The OP is from Aug of 2020 and the article you share in your post is from Sept of 2019.
