Ebikes are, in short, normal bikes with the addition of an electric motor that helps you get around. But it has been suggested that they could be the future of transportation, alongside other kit like electronic scooters, especially in a post-lockdown world.
Variously called electric bikes, pedelecs and electric-assist bikes, e-bikes combine a fairly conventional bike with a battery and motor that helps out when you're pedalling to make it easier to get up hills, accelerate away from lights and cruise along.
Electric bicycles combine the advantages of ordinary bicycles and motorcycles. Electric bicycles are low-cost and a mode of transportation that most people can afford. Electric bicycles are powered by rechargeable batteries to provide additional power for riders. Electric bicycles are an attractive alternative to traditional bicycles and traditional cars. Electric bicycles are becoming more and more popular around the world.
The first thing you should know about e-bikes is that they’re here to stay. Electric bike sales jumped by an incredible 91 percent from 2016 to 2017 alone, according to the market research firm NPD Group. It’s a $77.1 million industry, and there’s no sign of a slowdown. Last year, e-bike sales even surpassed traditional bike sales in the Netherlands.
