How Much Do Electric Bikes Cost?

Half-image of man on an electric bike.

Electric bikes come in many shapes and sizes. Not every body is perfect for everybody.  Pricing an eBike —and determining what you’re willing to pay for one—is a balancing act between form and function, style and substance. Yeah, the latest eBike may look suave. But does it do what you need it to do? Will you end up paying for features that you don’t need, don’t want and will never use? After all, different features can mean different costs; more features, higher costs.

So how much does an electric bike cost? It depends on what you need out of an eBike.

Electric Bikes for Commuter (from $450 up)

Commuter eBikes need to tick a few boxes in order to appeal to commuters. These include:

  • Lightweight
  • Easy to store
  • Enough power to navigate through city traffic

The SWAGTRON® EB5 Pro Plus Folding City and Campus eBike is a great example of an eBike that ticks all these boxes. With a price point of around $500 to $600, it fits comfortably in a mid-range budget. The bike gets around 15.5 miles per charge, which makes for zipping through the city.

SWAGTRON EB1 Short Commute Folding eBike is an excellent choice for smaller budgets.

At the entry-level, the SWAGTRON EB1 Short Commute Folding eBike is an excellent choice for smaller budgets. If short distances are your thing, you’ll be happy to know this compact model will get you just under 7.5 miles per charge. It also has an attractive price tag that ranges between $300 and $400.

Purpose-Built for the Outdoors (from $550 up)

The SWAGTRON EB7 Plus Electric Bike With 7-Speed Gear Shift is the ideal companion when you need to make a quick transition from your outdoor adventures to city streets. It has a 20-mile range when charged which is great for those meandering adventures. It’s also foldable, making it easier to carry when you’re using multiple modes of transport.

When you think outdoors, two things should come to mind: fat wheels and power. Outdoor eBikes are purpose-built to give you that extra boost when you’re climbing hills and navigating rocks. The SWAGTRON EB8 offers a great solution to your outdoor needs.

All-terrain, fat tires provide that extra bit of grip when the road includes branches, gravel, and dirt. This particular model is also foldable too, and its heavier weight adds a bit more stability on rough terrain. Add to it the Shimano gear shifts and removable battery and you got yourself a trail-riding beast. eBikes like this one start at around $850.

(There’s also a slightly smaller version—the EB6—with much of the same features, only a smaller frame size that some riders find more comfortable.)

Recertified & Budget-Friendly (from $240 up)

You’re ready to get your hands on an eBike, but you’re not quite ready to part with a few hundred dollars. Recertified electric bikes are great for those who want the easy commute an eBike offers on a smaller budget.

Recertified eBikes aren’t relegated to just one type of eBike, from the EB7 Commuter  to the pedal-free swagCYCLE Envy. And SWAGTRON’s technicians make sure all recertified bikes are fully functional and performs good as new. A minor scratch equals major savings.

When Pedaling Isn’t an Option (from $200 up)

Pedaling goes hand-in-hand (or foot-in-foot, as it were) with bicycling. But sometimes, you just . . . don’t wanna. Fortunately, not all eBikes require you to put in effort to keep things moving. Pedal-less bikes are here to let you have fun exploring and engaging without leaving yourself winded or sweaty.

The SWAGCYCLE Classic—our O.G. pedal-less eBike—is a good option for those who travel distances of 12 miles or less. The eBike includes a port for charging your phone and a headlight for those twilight trips. This model costs around $350 to $450.

A great option for those who just want an entry-level runaround that ranges from about $250 to $350 is the SWAGTRON Envy. It has a collapsable neck, a lightweight design, and can reach distances between 9 and 12 miles on a single charge.

The SWAGCYCLE Pro is the ultimate cruiser that gets you between 12 and 15.5 miles per charge. It’s the perfect crossover between a scooter and eBike and boasts a 350W motor. You can expect to pay around $400 to $500 for this one.

Picking an eBike is all about features and cost. Think about what you need from your new ride and how much you have to spend. Then get shopping! Find your SWAG!
