The time has never been better! It’s becoming more apparent the way people are travelling within towns and cities and you’ve undoubtedly noticed that a lot more people are riding eBikes. You’ve also no doubt observed other options such as electric scooters. This is all part of a new industry growth which is leading the most recent battery technology and applying it to personal transportation.
eBike sales are forecast to boom over the next three years, with predicted global sales of more than 130 million between 2020 to 2023, far surpassing the sales forecast for electric cars over the same period.
The UK is only beginning to catch on to the convenience, financial and health benefits of the eBike and the market is poised for rapid growth over the next few years. In Germany, eBike sales jumped 36 percent to nearly 1 million units in 2018, and the nation reached that number of units in just the first half of 2019.
New lightweight batteries, slim-line models which look almost identical to their manual counterparts and an increase in the government funded allowance for the cycle to work scheme, are all feeding growing demand for eBikes in the UK.
eBikes are also far easier to charge than cars as they don’t need special power points and reach full charge in a couple of hours.
Rightbike has built a business based on excellent customer service and known for its diverse selection of bikes, workshops and hire facilities. Not only are they Petersfield’s ‘go to’ place for eBike sales and information, they want to help you do the same in your local area.
