Trying to find fat bike recommendations is frustrating!

I'm having trouble finding a good place to source a fat (4-5" tyre) bike in Perth. My trouble is that there are helpful online reviews for mainline fat bikes, but these never seem to cover
a) electric fat bikes, or
b) other brands or brands that are new to the market (which seems to be the only fatbikes - bar Diamant - that get an electric conversion)
