I have a RadCity that I'm moderately happy with. It's way more bike than I deserve though.
Pros:
  • the Rad bikes are relatively cheaper as you buy direct
  • integrated rear rack
  • hills are not much of an issue, unless you run out of juice (I do get about 70km off a charge, but I tend to only use the first level of power assist. It has 5)
Cons:
  • you have to be fairly comfortable with putting it together yourself, or at least find a shop willing to do that
  • I really should have got a step-through, as it's pretty high and can lead to my voice going higher
Whatnots:
  • they are HEAVY - although that's pretty much all electric bikes. Don't live above the first floor, and you really don't want to ride it much without the motor.
  • the throttle may make your bike unlawful, depending on jurisdiction
