My first impression was really good. Pretty great e-bike. Climbs uphill good enough with a little pedalling help. It feels well on street paved and off-road surfaces. Just one detail about handlebar mechanism, it’s necessary to use hex key to detach it (no folding mechanism)

I only need to change the seat for a more comfortable one, since I am a heavier bike rider. Besides this, the bike is fantastic!

My wife and I bought two of these great all-terrain e-bikes and we both love to ride them! They fold so easily, we fit both bikes into the back of our Volkswagen Tiguan SUV and still have room for luggage. We like to explore parks, trails as well as less-traveled urban backstreets and these gems are perfect for our needs. We equipped them both with seats with a tad more padding, but the stock seat was fine for me, since my regular commuter bike has a Brooks saddle and I am used to it. All in all, I recommend this great value in a basic off-road e-bike. Simple, efficient and foldable!
