The Cityzen is a popular choice for active cyclists because it emphasizes the efficient performance of a regular bike - due to the narrower tires, a rigid fork and light, stiff wheels - and a design that is clean and "Zen".  The classic Dutch bike is very upright which makes them outstanding for comfort, but that can be a slog at speed and on longer rides. Narrower tires roll considerably faster than comfort/cruiser style fat tires. If you are looking for more of an exercise experience while still enjoying the benefits of eBikes - like help on the hills or for endurance on a long ride - the Cityzen is a solid choice. 

Since cycling in Holland is like car driving in the US, the Dutch really know what it takes to have an excellent cycling experience. Gazelle is renowned for outstanding reliability and lots of touches and extras that are not immediately obvious, but you will appreciate for years to come.
