Same general rule as any bike: if you build on a solid foundation, everything else is upgradeable. Obviously frame design is important for an FS bike. With an eMTB that includes motor/battery/controls. Start with a known brand (Bosch, Shimano, Brose, Yahama, Bafang) and go from there.
What kind of terrain do you ride, at what speeds do you want to ride at, do you want pedal assist, do you want geared hub drive, or direct drive or mid drive. What power levels do you require, watts, discharge amps, voltage. Do you want to be stuck with a non upgradable proprietary ebike or one that you can swap out the motor or controller to anything you want and not be restricted to what Bosch or Shimano or Specialized/Giant/etc sells.
