The number of LEV users is continually on the increase. Whether on excursions, holiday explorations, going to the office or shopping: E-bikes are becoming more and more popular.
Elektric mobility is closely connected with terms such as urbaneness, health, mobility or environmental protection and is thus meeting the current trend. Critical voices however can also be heard.
The limited range and the lack of facilities to charge the accumulator set limits to the joy of riding pedelecs.
"Range and thus the capacity of the battery are very important to me since I go on long tours especially when on holiday. Sadly this is only possible at the cost of more weight and long charging times.",
explains one avid cyclist. Another misses public charging facilities:
"There are hardly any public charging facilities. And where there are some my charger doesn’t fit."
