10 reasons why the pedelec will catch on as a form of transport.
8. Energy efficient
With 250 Wh you can travel 33 km, while the same amount of energy can hear just 10 litres of water from tap temperature to shower temperature. According to Wikipedia a shower takes around 60 litres of water, so in energy terms it’s equivalent to 198 km of pedelec riding.
1. Space-efficient to park
2. More mobility in less space
3. Comfortable, cheap and faster
4. Emissions saving
6. Mobility enhancing
7. Health enhancing
10. Climate targets
