Best Electric Folding Bikes for 2020


If you are looking for a bike easy to use and to store, check this impressive list with best electric folding bikes with a variety of designs, and all Amazon bestsellers. You will notice that the list includes:

  • Folding electric bikes, as expected in view of the title.
  • All of them are with batteries, some removable and some fixed.
  • Electric bicycles with pedals.
  • Pedal-free electric bicycles.
  • There may be even tricycle included, dependent on the situation on Amazon, as I said those are bestsellers and the list changes all the time.
  • Some of them are electric mountain bikes.
  • Many of them are with small wheels, 14 inches or so, great for storage and for commuting, but there are exceptions.

Why using an electric bicycle

This will depend on the type of the bike. Having batteries with those with pedals will assist you when you have to ride up a slope, so the batteries are not engines that move the bike. But with those electric folding bike scooters, you have the engine that does the job.

Why folding bikes

Regardless of where you use such a bike, having a folding design is really convenient. If this is a mountain folding bike, you will perhaps transport it in the car, so a folding design saves space if it has to go to the car. Packing a bicycle in a car can really be annoying.

If this is for commuting, it should be obvious, getting such a bike on and off the train is much easier. Also, when you store it at home, you can put it folded in a smaller space. If you are a student and want to keep the bike safe, fold it and take in your room. Many of them are also very light so this combined with a small folded size helps a lot.

Since they are folding, this determines their purpose and use, so the folding mechanism should be easy to use. The models in the list are of such a type, this is one of the reason why they are bestsellers.

How to choose a folding electric bike

Obviously, this will depend on the purpose. If this is for commuting or for storage in a small space like a student room, you will want something ultra compact, ultra light, and with small wheels.

Bikes for commuting do not need lots of bells and whistles. But this is quite the opposite if you need a folding mountain bike, these will have 20 or 21 gears and strong brakes. Mountain electric bikes will have larger wheels and wide tires. See this great example:

The price

In view of the variety of types, the prices are very different, typically in the range $200 – 1500. But this changes all the time, there are discounts from time to time, this is not a fixed list, it is updated daily and the models change all the time. So you might want to bookmark it and visit from time to time.

Buying online

When you see how many of these electric bikes are on Amazon, you realize why it is suitable to buy online. You will not find them in such a variety in your local store. Note that some of the models are also Amazon Prime items, so you do not risk anything really buying online.

How to keep the bike in a good shape

If you have any experience at all with any bicycle then you will know. There is nothing extra you need to do with such folding electric bikes. Only in the case of a removable battery, if you have to leave the bike outside, take the battery with you. You never know.

One more thing, you might be obliged by law to use a bike helmet, so follow the link to find some for you. Having a helmet is reasonable in any case, this is the matter of safety and it can save your life. Check also our list with electric scooters for adults.
