What States Offer Ebike Rebates?
How Much Does An Electric Bike Cost?
Aventon’s high-quality, TUV safety certified ebikes made with LG battery cells, range between $1,200 to $2,200, and include a 2-year warranty! For example, the Soltera 7 at $1,199, the all-new Pace 500.3 at $1,699, and our first ever cargo ebike, Abound, at $2,199. This may seem like a lot of money up front, and while it's not quite a free electric bike, you’ll save BIG with ebike rebates and incentives.
Aventon’s electric bike financing partners, Affirm, combined with ebike rebates will not only help with the overall costs of an ebike, but will also break down the remaining balance so that you can pay the minimum amount over time. This will make budgeting and saving easier than ever before, and get you in the saddle sooner!
With Aventon’s partners Affirm, you can pick a monthly e bike finance plan that fits your budget. Pick a plan that works best for you and then stick to it, never paying more than the agreed on monthly payment. Affirm is easy and straightforward. Simply pay online at Affirm.com or through the Affirm app. They’ll even remind you of upcoming payments by sending emails or/and texts so you pay on time.
With Affirm there’s no hidden fees. They won’t charge late fees or penalize you for forgetting to make a payment (unlike those other credit firms or money lenders). Affirm makes it easier to finance an electric bike and start your emobility journey today!
