Whoa yea, surprise you haven't gotten more flame yet, but many folks here are getting more accepting of em, even tho it's def outside the collective interest of this forum. You're way better off on brand specific Facebook groups or endless sphere forum
That said, to me the most important question is your intent. Do you wanna ride it like a moped, on road with traffic, pure throttle without much pedaling?, or are you trying to make a 5mi bicycle commute easier? As a moped the options are different and range cost and speed drive your selection. For e bikes cycling style, there's a lot but the capabilities are close and nearly interchangeable. You can do fine on a decent brand anything or a conversion kit if you're trying to be cheap. Rad seem like good options.
On the mopeds, the juiced ones are a personal fave if you're OK in the 30mph and 30mi range. Onyx really does kinda dominate for max performance and community support. But they're twice the cost.
I dunno, defining exactly your demands and budget really clean up the choices from a seemingly endless field
