Electric bicycles are an important environmentally and socially sustainable alternative to cars for covering distances of up to around 20 kilometres. Compared to cars, electric bicycles are more economical and at the same time healthier and more eco-friendly, and are often quicker – and indisputably space-saving.

Although electric bicycles are less eco-friendly than conventional, non-motorized bicycles, their relatively minor negative impact on the environment is substantially offset when they are used as a means of transportation in lieu of cars.
