Motor, Battery, Speed and Range
The Ecotric fat tire is equipped with powerful 500W brushless motor meaning it’s quiet while operating, and as a power source uses 48V/15AH Lithium Battery that’s normally found in other reputable and expensive e-bikes. This is sufficient to speed up to 25 mph with maximum riding radius of 30 miles on a single charge, After that you will need up to 8 hours to fully recharge the battery. However, you can use pedals, especially on the steep slopes to prolong battery life and in that case it can run as far as 45 miles on a single charge.
