Did you know?
According to a study conducted by the European Cyclists Federation, e-bikes are even better for the environment than electric cars, creating just 2.5 to 5 grams of carbon dioxide per mile.
Since ebikes are lighter and more compact than diesel or petrol cars, they occupy less road space, freeing up extra space for other vehicles and lowering the total number of cars on the road and the carbon footprint.
Ebikes require less maintenance and fuel compared to traditional cars and motorcycles, resulting in less waste being produced over their lifetime. For instance, ebikes do not need oil changes, spark plug replacements, or other routine maintenance commonly required for gasoline-powered vehicles.
