Bikes: This list got too long: several ‘bents, an urban utility e-bike, and a dahon D7 that my daughter has absconded with.

I am in P.R. China; so, I expect that your selection is pretty much the same as mine. I have had an e-bike here in the past; however, at the present I do not. If you are thinking of getting it to cut down on cab trips, it will probably work pretty well.
What matters in the consideration is; first, what are you doing now, is it working well for you? What about the present situation do you want to change? Then, is that within the parameters of the device?
As I said, if you are unhappy about the hassle of getting a cab for frequent, medium distance, cab trips; then, the e-bike is a good choice. Several people I knew were just tired of the walk to work, it was just over one kilometer (possibly two Km); however, it was up a steep hill that made riding a pushbike uncomfortable for them. For them an e-bike was a good choice.
To answer your question, more information would be needed about the intended use.
