i got one of these
Oxygen S-CROSS MTB Electric Mountain Bike did i do right
Oh yeah, very nice bikes. Hopefully the all black version, like the Batcycle
I've had one since January this year. No problems at all.
hope it has good range and power for the hills
Wayne regarding hills. I can only give my limited experience . If you can look up Shooters hill in south London .and if you know how to check elevation etc. I don't to be honest. But it's a big high horrible hill. At 50 and 17 stone I wouldn't even walk up it. A few months ago to test my new bike out I had a go at it. By the top I was in lowest gear and standing up. But I did get up it. I was maybe 3 house from the top. But there was a convenient car park for some flats where I could take a photo. And I felt cars staring at me lol.
1km at 5.6% average according to Strava segment and Google map data.
Do you mean Shooters hill in Bexley? If so, it shows a peak of 9.4% gradient on Strava.

Wayne, the longest I've done is 20 miles and it went about half way down.
Yes shooters hill.ni think it got steep right near the top. Probably why I thought. That'll do!
