As any ebike purchase, first you need to set you parameters for performance.
Determine the terrain & type of riding you plan on doing with your ebike, then decide whether mid-drive or hub-drive is better suited for your purpose.
I currently own both type of motor-drive ebikes, and do many different types of riding, on & off-road.
I've built my own and purchased many hub-driven ebike for over a decade, and mid-drive for over 4 years.
I still prefer hub-driven ebikes for majority of my riding.
Determine your needs, be specific; maybe you'd get better suggestions from the collective.
