I bought mine on Boxing Day for $199 it’s a real bargain. it only has one fixed gear.
I have ridden it about three times a week for 10 km each time for almost three months and it runs well. Good battery response and comfortable to ride. Bit hard on steep hills with only one gear. Gets to 25kph

Kmart Evolt electric bike
Bought two bikes, (myself & wife), have taken them with us throughout our trip within Australia. So far so good , I don't think we get 25 km per. charge though. They are easy to ride and fold, fit nicely into Pajero rear. Everyone who sees us in the caravan parks are interested. Happy with purchase.

Not a bad 'entry level' E-Bike for the relatively cheap price
Advertised at Kmart for $599 in December then reduced to $299 just before Christmas. Needed a bike to fold up in my Toyota 86 boot because a full size mountain bike was scratching it up too much & I had to fold the seats down all the time as well as removing the front wheel. This bike however folds up and fits perfectly into the boot (only need to remove the seat which is easy)
Had it for over a month now and quite happy with it. Initially didn't really buy it for the power assist aspect but handy to have it now. Has a rating for 100kg weight ...load and I weigh approx 113kg but it seems to be ok with that although it squeaks and rattles a bit so that's probably a sign for me to lose some weight.... Need to be careful on what road or path surface you take it on as it wouldn't handle anything too rough Has push-button horn and front/back lights, 6klm throttle is annoying but not a deal breaker (will research online further as I have heard there is a way to disable this). Folds up quick (around 10-20 seconds) and very easy to do. I get about 6-7 days out of a battery and it takes about 4 hours to charge from completely flat to completely full Pros - Folds up small & quick, 250W power assist, does it what it claims to do, cheap Cons - Only suitable for smooth paths & well made roads, 6 klm p/hr throttle (if not peddling) UPDATE - (11.02.2020) left pedal has sheared off the crank. Had to install new nut and washer to hold it on

Basic but for the price - great
This bike is now for sale at $199 as the battery alone costs at least $250, it represents great value for money. Having the throttle limited to 6 kmh is a pain, Though I do believe it can be modified.
I originally paid $299 for the bike but when it went on sale at $199 I was able with a bit of messing about at the service desk to get a $100 refund. If you paid more than $199 I suggest you do the same. People are now trying to sell these bikes on Gumtree for $600

E Volt foldable electric bike.
Mine is quite well made. The thottle only propels the bike to 6 kpr to assist in walking the bike. It will do 25 kph max on the flat with minimal pedal assist just so long as the pedals are turning. I think it good value for the money.

Very good,well worth it
My first E bike and loving it,ride it everyday fold up and take bus as well,decent quality but not as sturdy as $1000 bikes which of course you don't expect,recommend checking and tightening chain tension as factory is to loose and chain comes off over bumps,now on sale 299,bargain!!

Excellant value for money
We own multiple electric bikes and trikes, this an excellant buy. Not sure what the first reviewer means as we had no issue using pedal assist to get up to 25kmhr with barely any effort. The throttle control is only for strolling at 6km/hr or to assist initial movement, once moving release the throttle control and the pedal assist takes over. Covered 15km on the first ride before even charging the battery so no doubt it will go the distance. It does feel a little "flimsy" compared to $1000 plus models but im 6ft and 90kg and no issue riding the cycle paths of sydney.

Questions & Answers
How do I take the battery out
Each battery has a key with 3 marked positions on the battery. Insert key push in and turn to the 'unlock' position. You need to remove the bike seat then lift battery handle on top and pull battery out. I lost keys to one of my bikes, but in desperation I tried the key from the second bike and with a bit of jiggling the key works on both bikes.
Thanks for the update
I'm interested in a Electric foldable bike, can you please help me?
We bought the Evolt foldable electric bike from K-Mart in Jan 2019. We take them caravanning when we go (a bit of a lull in 2020). For our needs they have proved excellent. The pair of them fold up and fit into the boot of our Pajero. I put them on one side which leaves plenty of room for other luggage/ items to fit in. We use them to ride around the foreshores or down the shops for a coffee or pick up items.. They are an Occasional bike. If you want to ride to explore then you need to spend more than what we did, at least a grand. (We paid $599 for two on post xmas sale !!) But for our use they are excellent. I even bought a trailer that quickly attaches to the rear and we take our little dogs for a ride. We probable ride 8-10 k each time we go out and get maybe 4-5 days out of a charge depending on hills. Cant recommend electric bikes enough, especially foldable ones. Happy biking.
Can anyone send me their Kmart receipt?
