The basics

E-bikes seemed to have come out of nowhere like a new invention - actually the electric bicycle's invention pre-dates mass production of the automobile. Much of the motor technology has been well developed (since electric motors are in nearly every machine these days) but the batteries took a while to be light and powerful enough to be suitable. Lithium-ion batteries, like the ones in laptops, phones and Tesla's) finally made e-bikes have a reasonable power to weight ratio  and enough range for common trip distances.
