Pros and Cons:
Hub motor Pros (Standard Overide Trike)
More affordable. More often produced in China where labour costs are lower which is passed onto the consumer.
Less effort by rider to generate the same amount of output as a mid drive motor. Especially more power on hill climbs from the takeoff.
No need for changing ones pedal stroke to minimise chain and cassette wear. Rider can pedal through the stroke in the same way as a normal bike.
Repair of parts in the motor is often but not always possible whereas most mid drive manufacturers don't support replacement of internal parts but suggest an entire motor replacement. Fine within the warranty period but not ideal outside of it.
Hub motor cons (Standard Overide Trike)
Far more weight in the front or rear wheel which does not give ideal weight distribution. The bike will feel quite different and heavier to a mid drive setup. This will be most noticeable when mountain biking.
Not ideal traction if the motor is on the front wheel. If the bike takes off from a steep slope especially if its wet the wheel can spin and slide. Not suitable for mountain biking at all.
The possibility of breaking spokes is higher as the wheel is laced with a relatively heavy motor in the middle of the rim. Spokes and hubs are under more stress. Imperative that the rider lifts off the saddle going over any speed jumps and pot holes. This is a skill that all riders should have but is crucial on electric bikes with rear hub motors to minimise broken spokes and fatiguing the rim.
Changing a flat tyre is more complex on most hub motor models. It will require more skill to remove and generally a spanner rather than the ease of quick release.
Mid drive pros
Much nicer weight distribution with the motor low and centred to the frame. Bike will feel more like a standard bike.
More efficient use of the your contribution as the motor is designed to leverage the gears like a motorbike. A mid drive bike will get further range than a hub motor especially on big ascents.
Flat tyres and removing wheels is easier as the wheels on the bike are standard. No need for any tools to remove the wheels except when the ebike is setup with internal hub gears in the rear wheel.
Mid drive cons
More expensive than a hub motor. Generally the motors and bikes are made in Europe so a higher price point but this is changing with brands like Bafang from China producing mid drive kits and motors designed for frame manufacturers
Chain and cassette wear can be worse than a hub motor unless the rider is able to slow the pedal stroke to accommodate the heavy loads on the chain and cassette. On some mid drive motors like Bosch and Impulse the motor will power off when the rider shifts gears but the motor is still engaged while it spins down so the rider should slow the stroke before shifting to minimise clunky and intrusive gear shifting. In some models like Brose and Shimano e8000 this is imperative as there is no sensor to turn off the motor when shifting gears so the chance of snapping a chain or hangar is high especially on full power and on steep offroad hill climbs.
LCD screen gives you all your info, including battery life, speed, tripmeter and more, with 5 modes , giving you a choice of a very easy ride or a lower mode for some exercise.
Brakes are hydraulic disc brakes from Tektro, Gears are 3 speed Nexus by Shimano with silent clutch.

Wheels are alloy with stainless steel spokes and 20 x 4.0 inch Kenda Krusade Sport tyres, suitable for the road and any off road surface, including the beach.
The fat tyres give you a superior comfort ride as well as providing the rider better stability and traction.
Front aluminium suspension forks, suspension seat post and the new Ultra comfort seat from Overide make this Trike even more comfortable, you won’t want to get off !
