2. More mobility in less space
Pedelecs offer much mobility but take little road space, be- cause they allow people to keep up an even and matching pace largely irrespective of gradients or headwinds. They use the available road space more efficiently while still allowing riders to cover similar distances to typical car journeys in town and in rural local transport.
