ExtraEnergy kicks off 2021 by launching consulting services in the LEV sector across the globe!!
With more than 32 years of rich experience in testing pedelecs and e-bikes and from being one of the most important actors for information, consumer protection and promotion of Light Electric Vehicles worldwide, ExtraEnergy now extends its service offerings with ExtraEnergy Consulting.
Electric mobility has started gaining momentum and EV’s have already started challenging internal combustion vehicles. The micro mobility market in Europe alone is expected to grow from 70 to 120 billion euros by the year 2030. Leading the way in the growth curve are e-bikes which are predicted to grow from 3.7 million bikes sold in 2019 to 17 million in 2030. The 2020 market numbers suggest, that the e-bike market already grew 23% despite several months of bike shop closures in many countries and severe pressure on supply chains. Because of the current e-bike demand and the support already committed by governments in terms of new infrastructure and purchase premiums for e-bikes, the Cycling Industries Europe (CIE), Industry association (CONEBI) and the European Cyclists Federation (ECF) believe that a yearly sales mark of 10 million per year sales mark could be achieved as soon as 2024.
The change in mobility already started:
