10 best electric bikes

1. Raleigh Motus Hub Lowstep: £2,000, Raleigh

The Raleigh uses batteries from Bosch which have a range of up to 110 miles when in Eco mode, which is fine for flat terrain, but it’s quite a bit less in the more powerful Turbo mode – you flick between modes with a thumb press. It comes with mudguards, lights and a luggage rack plus a built-in lock. There’s also a Walk button which gives slower assistance (3.8mph) for when you’re pushing the bike along. Choose from bronze and cerise colour options.
