The Vilano Pulse is a more affordable pedal-assist electric bike available in high step and a step-thru, predominantly sold online (requires assembly) and may be discontinued? Solid commuter package including steel fenders, a chain guard, a sturdy rack with pannier blockers and battery surround tubing as well as independent LED lights. Entry level Shimano Tourney 7 speed drivetrain but the grip shifter works well with basic ergonomic grips, the control pad is basic with limited readouts but easy to reach and understand while riding. The saddle is kind of firm and there’s no suspension, the motor and battery are both mounted at the rear which can feel unbalanced and the frame flexes a bit (on the step-thru version especially), only available in one size/color combination for each frame type.
