Global mobility industry is shifting – not only have recent years demonstrated a rising demand in electric and hybrid vehicles, there is also a noticeable change in personal mobility. We are talking about bikes and their recent upgrades – e-bikes.
The demand for healthier rides with less pollution and less impact on road traffic globally is soaring and more cities and countries prioritise making their roads bike-friendly. In 2016, Copenhagen announced that there were more bikes than cars on the street for the first time ever. And although every 19th person in the world buys a bike each year and overall production of bikes is 2.5x the production of cars, cycling accounted for only 1% of total road traffic vs. 77% for taxis and cars in 2018.
