What I would like, is for fewer people to ask stupid questions.
There are LOTS of different ebikes, with LOTS of different capabilities.
Maybe you think an electric unicycle would serve the OP's needs? Or an electric Penny Farthing?
If he thought he wanted one, would YOU be able to tell him it was an incredibly stupid idea, not practical AT ALL unless you want to be a circus sideshow performer? NO, you would tell him if it makes him feel good, then it is a WONDERFUL idea. Just so he thinks you are nice.
GET THE BLUE ONE. Everyone knows they are the best.
There are off-road bikes, on-road bikes, bikes that can do both, bikes that carry cargo, bikes that go fast, bikes that go far, bikes that fold, bikes that are lightweight, bikes that do ONE of these things very well, bikes that do TWO of these things relatively OK, NONE that do EVERYTHING, so the user actually has to make a decision what they WANT, what they NEED, and what they HAVE TO HAVE. Then, AFTER THAT, would be the time to explain clearly, WHAT THEY WANT THE BIKE TO DO FOR THEM, and ask for recommendations.
Without that prerequisite, the "recommendations" are a useless, worthless, frustating waste of time, effort, and energy. Which also results in people getting the WRONG bike, not being happy, and eventually coming to the realization that those "nice" people who told him the electric unicycle was a wonderful idea were total dumbasses.
It's kinda similar to a front-motor guy who has spun the axle and now has a fork that is a potential deathtrap being told to just put some torque arms on it and he would be just fine, not giving a crap about the potential danger, but telling him what he wants to hear, just so they can be seen as "nice". It is NOT NICE. It is EVIL, it is CRUEL, it is INHUMAN, and if it takes a vicious, uncaring SOB to keep that menace to society off the road, and save that poor ignorant fool from serious injury, then I am up for it.
