Some people will want their e-bike to appear like a normal bike just to avoid any possibility of having a problem. To me, this is not needed if you are riding a street legal e-bike. But this brings up a persistent problem in some places. E-bikes that look like gasoline powered scooters. Many riders have encountered police that cannot be convinced that they can fit the legal definition for a bicycle. Whether they are bicycles or not is defined by the local motor vehicle codes. Or, they may not. In some states, there is no such thing as an e-bike defined in the codes. Either way, you can encounter police who either don’t know their e-bike law, or just ticket you because of their opinion about e-bikes that look like scooters. Cops ticket, Judges sort it out later. Looking like a normal bike and staying under the police radar can save you some trouble. If you have a scooter type e-bike, then it’s worthwhile to know the law, and possibly even carry copies of the law that makes your bike a legal bicycle.
Some electric bikes claim to use a neat trick called regenerative braking. If you start pedaling the bicycle or going downhill, the spinning wheels turn the electric motor in the hub in reverse and start charging up the batteries. In practice, regenerative braking is nowhere near as useful on an electric bicycle as it is on an electric train or car. An electric bike has much less mass and velocity than either a train or car, so it never gains (or loses) anything like as much kinetic energy when it starts and stops. You’d have to go down an awful lot of hills to charge up the batteries completely and that’s usually not practical. And what’s the point in pedaling the wheels simply to charge the battery? You might as well have bought an ordinary bicycle to start with!

You Can Go Long(ish): E-bikes are great for commuting and even some long-distance travel. Consider this: a car can travel about 289 miles on a tank of gas (assuming an average of 24.1 miles per gallon for a 2015 model year car). Extracycles go 18-60 miles per charge, and a fully charged Elby e-bike can go 95 miles on gentle terrain. (Some e-bikes even have ranges greater than electric cars like the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3.)
