E-bikes are becoming increasingly popular, and there is little to no evidence to suggest this growth will slow in the recent future. As Europeans are adapting to the ‘new normal’ post-COVID-19 pandemic, e-bikes are likely to play a crucial role in everyone’s future.
According to the report, one in five people in Europe is likely to buy/use an e-bike. Another report from CONEBI, ECF’s partners in the bicycle industry, says more than 3M e-bikes were sold in 2019, a substantial increase of 23% compared to the previous year. In the UK, sales of e-bikes have boomed as travel restrictions encouraged commuters to seek alternative transport methods with some retailers seeing a 230% increase in demand over the summer.
