Genesis Electric folding commuter bike - problems

Anyone out there have a Genesis Electric Folding commuter bike? I just got one. I loved it the first two commuter days. Then it got a flat. I contacted their customer service for info on removing the rear wheel (which has the electric motor) and zippo response. I figured out the way to remove it is to unbolt the front sprocket to give me enough play to remove the rear wheel. There was nothing that came through the tire to give it a flat. I assumed a faulty inner tube. Genesis was no help.
Put in a new 14" inner tube. It has gone flat again. And this is after a total of 8 commutes on it with two flat tires! And now the on switch is malfunctioning.

Hell no.

Right now it's just going to be street driven until I can get into better shape. Maybe somewhere down the road with some much better componentry, it would be an "ok" off roader for some light trail riding. When I am ready to do some serious offroading, a new bike is going to be sourced.

I have had an Origami Gazelle for years now and I absolutely love it! It has held up wonderfully, and never caused me any problems. It is very light (only 28 lbs) and is ideal for commuting from class to class on my college campus. It folds up small enough to fit under my bed in my dorm!

My 4th folder (after a Strida 2, Dahon Helios XL and Dahon Mu XL) is a Tern Verge S11i, which I bought in 2013. It's got 4,700 miles on it and has been a very satisfactory commuter. I've also done a Century on it. I am especially fond of the Alfine 11 rear hub, which has the easiest maintenance regimen I've ever had in an internally-geared hub.
