I'm sure they will become more common here as well. Besides being a clean transportation, they are a lot of fun to ride. Right now they are rare enough that quality bikes are on the expensive up to prohibitive price range. Though there are a number of well established bike shops in town, none of them sell quality e-bikes. I expect that to change as time goes on and the popularity increases. And I expect the prices to become more reasonable as well. The company I purchased my bike from is pretty new to the market. They are selling a lot of bike for the money to get established. Their prices have increased $600 since the first of the year and I wouldn't be surprised if they continue to increase. They are still selling for less than their competition. It will take a lot more demand and more producers for the prices to fall... but they will.
