Perhaps you just want to make progress quickly, are looking for a sporting challenge or want to protect the environment on your way to work or on a Sunday excursion. Cycling is popular. Demand for e-bikes in particular is growing comparatively quickly. According to velosuisse, the association of Swiss bicycle and bicycle parts suppliers, the sales ratio between bicycles and e-bikes in Switzerland is now 55% to 45%. It is thus expected that soon every second bicycle sold will be an e-bike, states the Report on new sales in 2022 dated March 2023.
Compared with the previous year, demand on the bicycle market has declined for the second year in a row – entirely at the expense of muscle-powered two-wheelers. The run on fully equipped e-city bikes, with a bag rack and mudguard, is noticeable. According to velosuisse, people still enjoy riding bicycles in their free time. But the association is also noticing that e-bikes are being increasingly used as a practical, environmentally friendly and health-promoting mode of transport.
