A few questions:
-How much do you weigh?
-How much gear are you going to lug?(trailer maybee?)
-Is this a daily commuter, pleasure bike, or both?
-Do you own a bike currently that you enjoy?
-What is the terrain like in the areas you will be using the bike? Hilly, flat, bad roads, city ect...?
-What is your desired cruising speed?
-How much are you looking to spend?
-What is your mechanical knowledge?
As much information as possible. Its much easier to build or suggest an e-bike when you know exactly what the rider wants and needs the machine to do.
