We've been playing around with two eMTBs from Haibike recently. We've already taken a look at the Haibike XDURO All Mtn 7.0, but Haibike have a hardtail with a similar parts kit and the same Bosch Performance CX pedal-assist unit, to suit a different type of rider.

Here at AMB we're pretty sure we prefer our eMTBs as long travel bikes so we can truly enjoy the descents. But an e-hardtail offers lots of bonuses, like lower maintenance requirements and costs, plus easily transitioning from the trail to active transport and back again.
