Covid-19 put e-bike popularity into overdrive, EU report says

BRUSSELS, Belgium - The European bicycle industry has huge potential as the mobility landscape shifts to more sustainable forms of transportation, notes the recently published European Mobility Atlas 2021, a report analysing key facts and figures about transport in Europe. Even without the momentum from the Covid-19 pandemic, the industry has been gaining ground with investments and the trend of reshoring production facilities.
The uptake in e-bikes is seen as a key driver in the European bicycle industry. “E-bikes have a promising potential to substitute motor vehicle usage over short journeys, while having all the benefits of conventional bicycles,” the European Mobility Atlas states. - Photo Bike Europe
