Full Suspension E-MTB's: The best of the bestest

What I'm looking for: I'm looking for suggestions for Full susupension eMTB's that are the cream of the crop but also looking for the best bang for the buck as I don't have buckets of money. I'm looking for a FS eMTB with a mid-drive that has the battery housed within the frame ( or mostly within the frame ). I want decent components, Brand name shocks and at least a 500 watt motor. A quiet motor would be a big plus. Range over 30 miles a big plus. I'm setting the price limit to below $5K. Any links and or photos will be appreciated. At 65 I'd like to be able to ride some hilly rides I used to ride and not kill myself doing so. Almost forgot to add, I'm interested basically in a bike setup for E-assist.
Be the first to start the list.

Thanks 2old. Looks like a nice start. Price on the one you linked to is now about $2,900 although this is a pre-order price and can change at any time. I already own an Trek flat bar e-road bike with the Shimano Steps mid-drive. Same 250 watt motor I presume. Not a bad price all things considered although with tax should be over $3K ( ad said free shipping )

Are they charging tax now? Last time I purchased anything from them (within the last year), no tax.

Good question. I just assumed they would charge tax. If they don't that would be fantastic.
