As early as the first year of the epidemic, due to concerns about lockdowns and public transportation, a considerable number of residents in Europe and the United States began to choose other modes of travel. In this regard, the World Health Organization’s recommendation is that cycling or walking can be considered, so that since it is an alternative to public travel, it can maintain basic fitness needs.
Taking the United States as an example, according to the Outdoor Industry Association, the participation rate of outdoor sports in the United States reached 53% in 2020, and the number of participants increased to 160 million, an increase of 7.1 million people over the number of outdoor sports participants in 2019.
The result of the increase in demand for travel substitution and outdoor sports is that according to Huajing Intelligence Network data, global Ebike sales increased by 29% year-on-year in 2020, and the labor-saving and easy Ebike became the best choice in the epidemic era.
In addition to the epidemic factors, affected by climate warming and the international situation, European and American countries have been caught in an energy crisis in recent years, the prices of natural gas and crude oil have risen significantly, and the change from oil to electricity has become a major trend in the field of travel, and Ebike driven by electricity has once again stepped on the pulse of the times and become a savior to solve energy and environmental protection problems.
A study conducted in Portland, Oregon, USA, showed that increasing the use of Ebikes to 15% of the annual mileage per person in Poland would reduce Portland’s CO2 emissions from transportation. , an Ebike can reduce CO2 emissions by an average of 225 kg per year, enough to reduce the per capita emissions of the average American citizen by more than 1%.
The urgent need for environmental protection has also prompted the top decision-makers who shoulder the heavy responsibility to rush to Ebike. In order to reduce carbon emissions, European and American countries have successively introduced subsidy policies to encourage residents to buy Ebikes.
In the United States, you can get discounts or tax benefits on the purchase of Ebikes, and subsidies can run into billions of dollars; In Canada, you can get $750 cashback for every Ebike purchased that costs more than $1,000; Replace an Ebike in France and even receive a subsidy of up to 4000 euros…
A variety of high subsidies make Ebike, which is already the best choice, the most cost-effective choice.
Dutch electric bicycle manufacturer VanMoof also believes in an interview with foreign media that in the context of the global economic downturn, the cost of living crisis will promote more consumers to buy Ebike products, and electric bicycles are one of the cheapest solutions.
Ebike stands at the intersection of three future trends: mobility substitution, outdoor sports and low-carbon environmental protection, while enjoying the pursuit of decision-makers and users, giving birth to unlimited business possibilities.
