The eBike world in numbers

eBiking reflects the latest trend. More than three million pedelecs are already in use on Germany’s roads. A wide range of eBikes is available – from comfortable step-through models and everyday bikes to sporty eMountain bikes or functional eCargo bikes. There is a suitable eBike for every occasion. Interested people can choose from over 2,000 models on the German market.

Enthusiasm is spread through many countries. By 2023, annual sales of pedelecs are forecast to reach 3,300,000 in Europe. There is a constantly increasing demand for eBikes. This is due to its new opportunities for leisure bikers, but also to its potential for the city of the future. 51 percent of motorised transport trips could be moved to bicycles or cargo bikes. eCargo bikes are especially useful for parcel or delivery services. They can carry up to 200 kilograms without any problems.

The eBike is the perfect partner for urban life. Every other trip by car is less than 5 kilometres. The pedelec is the fastest mode of transport for these distances in urban traffic and saves time looking for parking lots. Moreover, the eBike can be an opportunity for urban planning, as a car parking space fits six to eight bicycles. Regained space could be used for people and the environment.

About Bosch eBike Systems

A new generation of bikes is taking town and country by storm and is already a part of everyday life. eBikes are a modern means of transport for modern people: people in a hurry and people who prefer to take it easy, the fit and the comfort lovers, commuters and pleasure cyclists and, of course, young and old. The tailwind of technology-leading eBikes made by what are already more than 70 leading brands in Europe is powered by components that Bosch is developing to perfection. The Bosch portfolio ranges from the highly efficient drive unit (motor and gearbox) and high-quality batteries to a smart on-board and cycle computer that can be used intuitively. Perfect coordination of components holds the key to typical Bosch performance in terms of both comfort and efficiency.
Like other Bosch products, the eBike systems benefit from the Bosch Group’s technology and production know-how. From conception and engineering to manufacturing, marketing and after-sales service, Bosch eBike Systems constantly set new standards for the eBike industry. The Bosch Group’s experience in the areas of electric motors, sensor technology, displays and lithium-ion batteries ensures that Bosch eBike systems use technology that is invented for life and that eBike users have their fun.
