Pedelecs: space-efficient to park

10 reasons why the pedelec will catch on as a form of transport.

1. Space-efficient to park

Pedelecs need just as little parking space as any bike, but because of their ease of use they have the potential to convince 30 % (1) of car drivers to move to cycling. This creates space for more greenery and play areas in town centres.
