The way to move around the city has changed dramatically in recent years. If earlier we could not imagine moving around the city without a car, taxi, bus or underground, then today you can use an electric scooter, electric bicycle, and other electric vehicle.
You do not even need to buy an electric scooter or bike, because there are mobile apps that allow you to rent a vehicle for 5 minutes or 1 kilometer, or a whole month. Just install the app, find the nearest bike, sit on it and ride! It is very convenient.
Of course, renting a bike or scooter is more expensive than having your own. Therefore, in this article we will tell you about the 10 best electric bikes that you can buy in Chinese online stores.
Why Is It Better to Buy Electric Bikes in China?
As you know, the Chinese products, including electric bikes, are cheaper than American or European ones, so you can get an electric bicycle much cheaper in China than in your country. Delivery is often free of charge, so you will win anyway.
Let’s start our article with the best electric bikes you can buy in 2019.
1. Xiaomi HIMO C20
Of course, the first electric bike on our list is Xiaomi HIMO C20. Xiaomi produces not only interesting smartphones, but also electric bikes. We like HIMO C20 because of it modern design, high-quality materials and good specifications.
The mileage of Xiaomi electric bike is about 80km, but even if the battery runs out, you can turn the pedals and ride on. The maximum speed is 25 km/h.
We have already written the article with first review of Xiaomi HIMO C20. You can read it here.

2. HIMO V1
This is another electric bike from Xiaomi. HIMO V1 has the same motor power as HIMO C20 – 250W, but smaller battery. Because of this, it has about 30km of mileage in full electric mode. The maximum speed is 20 km/h.
XIAOMI HIMO V1 has much more compact size than HIMO C20, so you can pick the bike up to take it home and to the subway.
By the way, there are several versions of HIMO V1, such as HIMO V1S and HIMO V1 Plus. The main differences between them is in battery capacity. HIMO V1 Plus has the biggest battery, and the longest ride distance – up to 80 km.

3. ZIYOUJIGUANG T18
We also have a review of ZIYOUJIGUANG T18 electric bike, but let’s remember its main features. Yeah, the name is very strange, but I think it means something in Chinese.
Perhaps the main feature of ZIYOUJIGUANG T18 is foldable design and compact size. You can fold the steering wheel, and then the bike will take up much less space. It is convenient for transportation in a car.
The bike has front and rear double disk brake, front and rear light, LCD display screen and super-thick and wear-resisting tires.

4. FIIDO D2
FIIDO D2 looks like Xiaomi HIMO C20, but it is more compact. Its weight is 19 kg, while the dimensions are 130 x 110 cm in unfolded state, and 75 x 65 cm in folded state. Yes, FIIDO D2 also has folding design. Unlike ZIYOUJIGUANG T18, FIIDO D2 has not only folding steering wheel, but also folding frame.
As other electric bikes, it has three riding modes: pedal mode, electric mode and moped mode. The mileage in electric mode is 30 km. You can ride up to 60 km in moped mode. You should note that the mileage also depends on the body weight and road surfaces – asphalt, soil and other.

5. Alfawise X1
Most likely, you know Alfawise, because this Chinese manufacturer produces many products from toothbrushes to projectors.
This year Alfawise released two electric bikes. The first bike is called Alfawise X1. Please, don’t confuse it with projector that has the same name.
Alfawise X1 is very similar to FIIDO D2, in both design and features. It also has folding design, 250W motor, 25 km/h maximum speed, and 60 km of mileage.
However, the electric bike from Alfawise has 14-inch tires. They’re pretty small wheels. In any case, this bike withstands 120 kg, so it is definitely not a child’s bike.
We have the full review of Alfawise X1. Read it to learn more details about design, specifications, pros and cons before buying the bike.
6. Alfawise X2
Alfawise X2 is not the second generation, but completely different electric bike. It’s very different from the previous bike.
Alfawise X2 has 26-inch tires. Because of this, the new electric bike is much bigger than Alfawise X1. However, it also have folding design, so you can fold it if you want.
In general, this bike is better than the previous version – it has 350W motor, 35 km/h maximum speed, 150 km maximum load, 70 km of mileage.
On the other hand, Alfawise X1 has its advantages. Read the comparison of Alfawise X1 and Alfawise X2 on this link.
7. ENGWE EP-2
ENGWE EP-2 is off-road folding electric bike. It has 500W brushless motor, 5 power modes, 10400mAh removable battery, shimano 6-speed and fat 20-inch tires.
We don’t think it’s a bicycle for daily rides around the city, but it’s a great bike for off-roads. It’s a real monster, and if you know how and where to use it, be sure to buy ENGWE EP-2.
8. COSWHEEL A2
This is probable the smallest and the most unusual electric bike in our list. As you understand, the main feature of COSWHEEL A2 is design. It is folded in half, so it takes up very little space.
Despite the compact dimensions and small wheels, the features are good. The maximum speed in sport mode is 30 km/h. The range is about 30-40 kilometers. It doesn’t have pedals, so the mileage is very important. We think 30 km is enough for riding to the store, office, college, etc.
The maximum load is 120 kg, so even the heavy man can ride on COSWHEEL A2.
9. Samebike MY – SM26
From futuristic to more familiar bike design. Samebike MY – SM26 is a mountain bike with electric motor. If you look carefully, it has a rear-wheel speed selector. The removable battery is installed on the frame.
As other electric bikes, Samebike MY – SM26 has three riding modes: pure electric mode, moped mode and pedal mode.
The maximum speed is 35 km/h, maximum load is 150 kg, and the mileage is 40 km in electric mode and 80 km in moped mode.
Just look at this bicycle spokes and frame! Samebike MY – SM26 looks like the sports bicycle.
10. Samebike LO26
Samebike LO26 is also a mountain electric bike, but it has a folding design. The features are almost the same as Samebike MY – SM26.
