Small differences but with big effects: no more hard climbs, no more problems riding into the wind, no more sweating during your commute. Several studies show that e-bike users ride more often and longer, and they usually choose their e-bike instead of other means of transportation.
Economical to use (about $5 for 1,000km), interactive, enjoyable and lightweight, e-bikes have a huge advantage compared to scooters and electric cars: even without a battery, you can still use them!

WHY BUY AN ELECTRIC BIKE?
Electric bikes are a new and promising alternative form of urban transportation. Many will tell you that the motor needs to be faster than 25km/h but then the Europeans who have been cycling for generations must be wrong-only in New Zealand, as even Australia now have regulated for EU standards. Ebikes provide all the advantages of a regular bicycle: fun, exercise, free parking, zero emissions, and freedom from gridlock, while eliminating one of the bicycle’s more serious drawbacks, lack of power. Imagine pedalling up a hill as comfortably as riding down, that’s what the e-bike experience is all about. In most situations in the city, riding an electric bike will be faster and cheaper than either car or public transit.
Fundamentally, an e-bike is just a regular bicycle with an electric motor to provide additional assistance. You can pedal normally and just use the motor to help out on hills and headwinds, or use the motor all the time just to make riding easier. The experience is entirely different from riding say a scooter or motorbike. Here the electric assistance is perfectly smooth and silent, and it complements rather than supplements human power.
