Like any part of a bike, electric or otherwise, the motor will last longer if you take care of it. Like any other part of a bike, electric or otherwise, the longevity of a motor depends on how well you look after it. Rather than moving the bike forward, the motor merely provides assistance. So if replacing the motor is not a concern, what about the other parts of the bike? The electric bike should last (with regular maintenance and care) as long as a regular bike.
On average, electric bikes last about 10 years. If you are conscientious in caring for your ebike, it can last more than a decade. This figure may be higher or lower depending on the type of bike and its use.
