The Best Electric Bike Companies and Manufacturers

Electric Bikes have been growing in popularity over the last number of years. And with that, many new manufacturers have jumped into the market. The relative ease of building a finished product from a collection of Chinese parts makers has lowered the barrier-to-entry for ambitious Western entrepreneurs. While this is great for driving down the prices, it has meant that there are a good number of low-quality products available on the market. Of course, it’s worth noting that some long-time cycle makers have also jumped wholeheartedly into electric bikes. Their offerings tend to be a little pricier, but they have been adding some much-needed leadership to the category.

The Types of Companies That Make Electric Bikes

When it comes to building an electric bike, the companies doing it couldn’t be more different from each other. Of course, the old-school bicycle makers have jumped into the emerging market, and many of them are making top-notch products. However, you’ll also find discount electronic manufacturers putting out cobbled together Frankenstein-type e-bikes in the hopes of capturing the low-cost market. Most of these are no-name companies based in China. Although it’s important to note that there are some excellent e-bikes available from Chinese manufacturers, you just need to do a little bit more research. And then there’s the enthusiast-as-manufacturer segment of e-bike riders who have decided to build their own products. While some are no more reputable than the aforementioned Franen-bikes, a few are making really exemplary contributions to this emerging industry. Many of these companies are based in British Columbia, Canada, or California in the US. The thing about some of these companies is that they are using local modern designs and having them built overseas by quality makers at a fair price. 

Choosing a Manufacturer

If money is not an issue and you’d rather not do a lot of research, we’d probably recommend you go straight to a company like Trek or Peugeot. Trek has been around building bicycles for a long time, and they know how to do it right. Any of the parts that they don’t make come from reputable suppliers, so you don’t have to do much vetting yourself. While a licensed brand, Peugeot is built by a reputable bicycle manufacturer that also produces Bianchi, one of the world’s top bikes for as long as anyone can remember. 

Of course, if you are open to kicking the tires a little more (pun intended), some great products are being designed in Canada and the USA. MOD Bikes out of Texas makes seriously cool cafe-racer-looking e-bikes that you shouldn’t miss. While Surface 604 in Vancouver, Canada, is making e-bikes that know how to tackle the constant incline/decline of life on the West Coast. 

However, even if you decide to go for something a little more cost-effective from suppliers overseas, you can still end up with a great bike. Just be sure to look for products that use quality components. A good no-name manufacturer will likely still use Samsung or LG batteries, and you may even find some that bolt a killer Bosch motor onto their frame. And these are names you can trust. 

We’ve put together this thorough, but by no means exhaustive, list of great electric bike companies and manufacturers, with a couple of exceptional offerings from each of them, to save you a bit of time.



An e-bike maker located in Southern California, the folks at Aventon Bikes, are inspired by the sense of mobility and freedom that electric bicycles provide. While their components are manufactured in China, the assembly is completed in the USA. Designing everything from serious track bikes to kids’ electric bicycles, these folks are a one-stop e-bike shop for the whole family. Aventon also offers a full complement of accessories to customize your e-bike to meet your exact needs.

The Level is Aventon’s version of an urban commuter e-bike, engineered for riders who want to ditch their cars but still want to keep up with the flow of traffic. It uses the same advanced motor technology as the award-winning Pace 500 electric bike, but the Level is styled urban riders. With solid handling, well-tuned suspension, and an extended battery, the Level Commuter Ebike is definitely one the most sought-after commuter bikes on the market.

It’s been called the most versatile folding fat-bike you’re ever going to find.

Founded in 2015, Benno Bikes is committed to changing the world one e-bike at a time. With a dream of giving people the option of ditching their car while still being able to lug around the things they need, Benno has developed an incredible range of two-wheeled stuff haulers that will make you look twice. Originally from Germany, Benno Baenziger went to design school in California and shortly after co-founded the Electra Bicycle Company. After leaving the company in 2010, Benno decided he still had more to offer this fast-changing market and set up inspired to make it easier to do anything on an electric bicycle.

This is an e-bike that’s capable of being all things to all people. Let’s start with the basics. It’s easy to ride and glide seamlessly through traffic, unlike many bikes made for hauling stuff. And boy does this bike haul stuff. Need to bring a baby along, simple. Aspire to strap a create full of deliveries onboard, easy. Figure you’ll take your surfboard along to the beach, not a problem. This e-bike can customize to almost any cargo situation without losing maneuverability.

A design inspired by vintage Italian scooters and classic German cars, the eJoy combines the past’s timeless vehicle design with modern technology. It all makes for an e-bike that’s both charming and capable. A powerful and efficient Bosch motor combines nicely with a sturdy oversized rear rack and an optional frame-mounted front tray to give you all sorts of load capacity. Its comfortable and upright riding position makes riding easy and fun, while the sturdy aluminum frame with its low step-through design gives you a stable ride with excellent control. The eJoy truly allows you to leave your car behind, whether you’re running errands or out for a joyride.

This is an adventure bike that is ready to go off the regular commuter routes. Perfect for exploring bike paths and different trails, readily rising whatever challenges you encounter.

A compact and highly sturdy e-utility bike, the Boost makes getting you and your cargo to where you need it to be fun and easy. Built on a modular design platform, this e-bike can be customized using its interchangeable rack system to carry almost any load. The heavy-duty rear rack will take up 110-pounds of whatever you fit it for. That could mean luggage, deliveries, or even a child. Of course, you still have carrying capacity on the front cargo loader, the add-on pannier bags, or even the optional side surfboard rack. No matter whether you chose either the Bosch Performance Line motor or the Bosch Performance Line CX, you know you’ll have plenty of power to haul almost anything.

If every commuter owned a GoCycle, the world would be a better place to live. Emissions would plummet, international air quality would improve, and everyone would arrive at work looking more stylish than they ever have before. It’s what happens when a brilliant engineer from McLaren Cars decides he would rather create something better for the world. Admittedly, it’s not a great cargo mover. However, after a series of Kickstarter-funded models drummed up considerable interest, the company has made increasingly fast-moving, lightweight, beautiful-looking electric bicycles. Not to mention they are probably the best folding bike maker on the planet.

This fine-looking e-bike combines Gocycle’s iconic magnesium frame, fast-folding handlebar, and carbon wheels to create a genuinely compelling urban e-bike. With its powerful 375-Wh battery, you get a solid 50-mile range, and it never feels underpowered.

Easy to fold, ultra-lightweight, with an extended range. And, of course, a streamlined chassis with PitstopWheels® that make cleaning Gocycle fast and easy. As usual, there will be no exposed oily chain, gears, or sprockets. Quite simply, no mess.

With Tern Bicycles, we have a manufacturer that is looking to change the world through sustainable transport. However, they are doing it with slick-looking e-bikes that can seduce even the most ardent petrolheads out of their cars. Their bikes look great and have extra levels of fun built-in standard, plus with a couple of clicks, they fold up quite nicely.

Truly a labor of love, Rad Power Bikes began as one guy trying to make life easier on himself. Mike Radenbaugh needed a better way to get to school, so he jerry-rigged his first homemade electric bicycle. People took notice, and very soon, he was doing electric conversions all over town. A few years later, he teamed up with his college roommate, and the two of them transformed Rad into one of the largest e-bike manufacturers in North America. Of course, the moment you ride one, you’ll notice that the original passion and tenacity are still a part of every e-bike that rolls off their line.

This is an electric bike for the urban rider. It’s for someone who traditionally would have gravitated towards an old-school fixie but now wants to have a little bit more fun. With a 500-Watt high-torque motor and around 45-miles of battery range, it’s impressive that the Mission 1 is able to come in at Rad’s lowest of price points. It’s the absolute perfect starter e-bike, but it’s so much fun that you may find yourself never needing anything else.

The fourth in the series, it’s the toughest and most versatile version of the RadWagon they’ve yet to make. And this version features smaller, innovative new tires developed by their in-house team of expert engineers to achieve a lower center of gravity. The new frame design ensures multiple adjustment points, including a telescopic seat post and an easily maneuverable set of handlebars. The 750-watt geared hub motor is no slouch and will keep you moving quickly for a little more than 45-miles. Not to mention the 350-pound load capacity and easy-add accessories make it so you can take whatever, wherever comfortably.

A group of Vancouver riders with over a hundred years of cycling between them decided to put their expertise to the test and create brilliantly designed electric bicycles for the world.

And if you’ve ridden the ups and downs and ups of the 604 area, you understand that it takes a quality maker to build an e-bike for those streets. They even back it up with a love it or money-back guarantee, so long as you buy directly through them. What’s not to love?

One of the most beautiful fat-tire electric bikes on the market today, the Boar is a brilliant ride that you won’t regret. One of the best bits about Boar is the precision torque sensor. Incredibly smooth, it knows how precisely hard you’re pedaling right down to the microsecond and matches that effort with proportionate power.

You know Biktrix comes from a solid base when you hear that it was started by a do-it-yourself motorcycle builder from Saskatchewan. Only the hardiest of folks think they can build a business with two-wheeled vehicles in the northern bit of central Canada. Of course, the founder was inspired by a trip to Europe, and after a widely successful Kickstarter campaign, is now building e-bikes that get exported back to Europe and around the world. With their direct-to-consumer only business model, all of Biktrix’s bikes are customizable, and they are still the only electric bike maker that ships eBikes by air across the US, right to your front door.

This e-bike has a way of completely eliminating range anxiety and letting you focus on riding wherever the day takes you.

The latest version of the Ultra motor with metal reduction gears, SRAM drivetrain, and 160Nm of torque make this most Ultra of Beasts a darn good bit of value for the price.

The 250-watt motor delivers best-in-class acceleration and hill-climbing, and no doubt you’ll find the power surprising given how quiet it is to ride.

There is no rule that says we ever have to give up our tricycles. And when you have the option to get a high-quality electric one for grownups, you might as well go for it. It’s not going to cut through traffic in the way a two-wheeler would but, this trike is well powered and stable. Unlike your childhood classic, Pedego’s Trike has a Twist-and-go throttle, 5 levels of pedal assist, and LCD display with USB charger. It’s all pushed along by a silver 36-volt brushless geared hub motor with 250-watts of nominal power, providing 30-nm of torque. All of which is to say, this trike is much faster than your last one.

EProdigy Bikes

With a full range of Commuter and Recreation e-bikes, eProdigy has become a reliable manufacturer of quality electric bicycles.

Coming in at under 35-pounds, the Fairweather is an ultra-lightweight, mid-drive, carbon-fiber folding e-bike that uses a Gates Carbon Belt Drive™ that is entirely maintenance-free and grease-free.

The 750-watt rear hub motor provides enough high-output torque to push through the sand or take a substantial amount of gear into the bush. The seemingly endless accessory options mean you can load this e-bike up with front racks, baskets, saddlebags, or whatever you need. The rear rack comes stock. The Rooster is truly the all-purpose bike you’ve been looking for.

Peugeot Electric Bikes


Started by Armand Peugeot in 1882, the bicycle business would eventually lead to the world-renowned cars we all think of when we hear the name Peugeot. Of course, today’s Peugeot cycles are not manufactured by the same folks who make the cars, but the name is licensed to a company specializing in bicycles. However, they are the same folks who make Bianchi the world’s oldest and most prestigious bicycle company. So they know a thing or two about building a bike. With the Peugeot line, they’ve ventured into producing so wonderfully high-quality electric bikes as well. All the old-world charm the brand has come to represent, infused with a modern twist.

An adventure e-bike in the truest sense, the PEUGEOT eT01 Crossover is a comfortable and versatile electric trekking bike. Equipped with Hutchinson Python 2 tires with raised studs, this VTC offers its rider security on slippery terrain. Well-equipped with easy to adapt instruments means that this is an e-bike suited to daily commuting or picking up the shopping and yet also perfect for long weekend rides. It pushes along with a Bosch Performance Line Motor, connected to the formidable Bosch Powertube 500-watt battery pack.

Mountain riding is always a little better knowing you’ve got a bit of juice in the tank to carry you home. And the eM02 does this in spades. Whether you want to be completely self-reliant with a backup or power assist your way through the hills, this is a brilliant mountain bike that also happens to be an e-bike. Like most Peugeot Cycles, this one uses the beautiful Bosch Performance Line Motor and feeds it from the Bosch Powertube 500-watt battery. A bad combination said no one ever. Of course, because it’s a hill bike, you’ll be happy to know it’s got a RockShox Recon RL 29/27,5+ 130 MM fork to support you on the bumps.

Quadrophenia fans, this is your electric bike! The company takes its name from the 1960’s London movement, the Mods. The people were style-conscious trendsetters that knew who they were and couldn’t be told otherwise. Their attention to detail and desire to pave their own path influenced the music, fashion, and art of the era and inspired ModBikes to transform the way people move with electric bikes.

This amazing-looking e-bike will make an enthusiastic out of even the most reluctant rider. It looks like the sort of thing that would turn up in a video for the WHO, so they’ve totally hit the MOD mark with the retro cafe racer styling. But what about the guts. The motor is a MOD DRIVE 750W (Peak 1050W) rear brushless geared hub -Hengtai, and the battery is a Samsung Powerpack – Lithium-ion 48V 13Ah (624Wh). All told, it will get up to 28 mph, and it has a 45 -mile range on a single charge. The frame is built using High-performance 6061 aluminum, and it’s compatible with their sidecar accessory. Need we say more?

Suppose you’re looking for something a little more traditional for urban riding. In that case, the Berlin Step-Thru is a classic yet powerful commuter e-bike with a smart torque sensor for a natural pedaling sensation with a touch of bionic superpowers. The motor is a MODRIVE (Shengyi) 350W (Peak 650W) brushless Mid Drive with 90 Nm of torque, powered by a Samsung Powerpack – Lithium-ion 48V 11.6Ah (557Wh). It will get you up to 28 mph and give you a range of 60-miles.

The folks at Gazelle make 250,000 quality bikes a year. And they do it with considerable passion for being up on two wheels. If there’s one thing, you can say about Gazelle owners, having a blast is top of mind for them. However, as a Royal Dutch company, they also layer on a feeling of sophistication and history to every bike they build. Or, as they say, the only e-bikes with a sense of Heritage.

The best way to arrive at work fast and relaxed might just be with the Ultimate T10+ HMB. With this e-bike, Gazelle created a dynamic contemporary design and combined it with the integrated motor and battery that gives the Ultimate T10+ HMB a striking yet stylish presence. The aluminum frame is remarkably stable, which translates into sporty handling and excellent dexterity on the road. In addition to high-end hardware, a high comfort level has been accomplished using puncture-resistant tires, ergonomic handlebar grips, and a suspension front fork.

The Medeo T10 HMB is an extremely versatile and practical electric bike to tackle everything from the work-week commute to the farmer’s market and pretty much any other errand you have to run. The frame has been artfully designed in a sloping fashion. It incorporates a stylish down tube that combines with the head tube to create a striking silhouette that will impress everyone you pass. With this trusted frame geometry and stable handling, combined with wide tires, a front suspension fork, and ergonomic handlebar grips, the Medeo T10 HMB is the electric bike to complement a cosmopolitan lifestyle.

I've been riding electric bikes for eight years and I love the fact that we're entering an age of electrified micro-mobility. Our cities are changing and adapting to the needs that climate change is thrusting upon them. Electrified micro-mobility is the future, and I'm excited to write about it.
