Electric bikes use an electric motor driven by a rechargeable battery pack to help you along. The motors can replace your pedalling or just assist it. E-bikes have a separate throttle on the handlebars, either a switch or a twist-grip and you decide how much help you get from the motor. In the future the law will be changed so that you must always be pedalling to get assistance from the motor. Pedelecs have a sensor on the pedals, and a little electronic brain measures how much effort you are putting in and can decide how much extra help to give you. Electric bikes are still bicycles, so have no road tax, no insurance, no MOT, no license plates, etc. To comply with this, they have to be limited to a maximum speed under power of 15mph (although you can pedal faster than this if you want, of course) and an average power of 200W (250W for an electric tricycle). At present in the UK, both E-bikes and Pedelecs are covered by this, although there are moves to make E-bikes conform to the same regulations as mopeds.
