It is impossible for electric bike range claims to be totally accurate as there are too many factors to consider. #how much the rider weighs; #what level of assistance the rider chooses; #the terrain they’re cycling over; #the amount of luggage they’re carrying; #how fast they go (1/3 faster = 1/2 the range); #how hard they’re pedalling; #how many times they stop and start (hill starts in particular will drain power); #wind conditions; #temperature (they will get about 15% more range from a battery on a warm sunny day than they would in winter); #tire pressure (as with regular bikes, soft tires = less efficiency = less distance for power expended); #what kind of battery they’re using; #how old their battery is (batteries lose power over time); #size of their bike motor (big motors are fun, but obviously they drain more battery power). Battery Capacity is the Most Important Factor. It is usually measured in Watt-hrs=amp-hrs x volts: 500wh-the battery can give 500w for 60minutes, 48V10.4Ah-the battery can give 10.4A for 60minutes at 48V.
