Top 5 eBike Questions Answered


Curious about electric bikes? You're not alone! Here are the top five questions we often hear from prospective riders, along with their straightforward answers: 

  1. How far can I go on a single charge?
    Answer: The range of an eBike depends on various factors, including battery capacity, terrain, rider weight, and assist level. Generally, you can expect a range of 50-100 km on a single charge.

  2. How fast can an eBike go?
    Answer: Most eBikes have a maximum speed of 20 mph (32km/h) in pedal-assist mode. This is also the maximum legal speed in Canada. However, some models can reach higher speeds, particularly in throttle-only mode or with off-road eBikes.

  3. Are eBikes legal to ride?
    Answer: Yes, eBikes are legal to ride in many places, including bike lanes and multi-use paths. However, regulations may vary depending on your location, so it's essential to familiarize yourself with local laws. In Canada, for eBikes to be street legal, the hub motor size should not exceed 500W and the maximum speed not to exceed 20 mph (32km/h). All eBikes sold at Teslica are street legal which means no license or insurance is required.

  4. How do I maintain an eBike?
    Answer: Regular maintenance is key to keeping your eBike in top condition. This includes keeping the tires properly inflated, lubricating the chain, and periodically checking the brakes and gears. Additionally, scheduling routine service appointments with a qualified technician can help ensure optimal performance. At Teslica, we recommend getting a tune-up once a year. You can book an appointment at the Teslica Service Center by clicking here.

  5. Are eBikes suitable for commuting?
    Answer: Absolutely! eBikes are an excellent choice for commuting, offering a convenient, eco-friendly, and cost-effective alternative to traditional transportation methods. With their electric assistance, you can breeze through traffic and arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and energized.
