Kevin's comment: For those on a budget, it can be a lot cheaper to convert your existing bike with a conversion kit. The excellent Canadian start up "Grin Technologies" offers their basic kit at only $388. See:

The advantage of buying a kit is that you can get exactly the bike you want, and then electrify it. If you are currently riding exactly the bike you want, then this works out well.

You will also need a battery. Here is an example of a good one for beginners:

Ping Li has an excellent reputation for quality and for customer support for beginners. That battery will give about 20-40 km of range, depending upon use. Specifically, how many of those km are going up the mountain.
