Real-time range control for tours with the e-bike - arrive safely without physical overexertione

Abstract

Background

According to figures from the Zweirad-Industrie-Verband (ZIV) Germany from March 2020 and August 2021, sales of e-bikes in Germany have been rising steadily for years, particularly markedly in the years since 2017. In 2020, approximately 1.95 million e-bikes were produced in Germany. In 2019, there was already a total stock of 5.4 million e-bikes. According to the trade association LEVA-EU, over 3 million e-bikes were sold in Europe in 2019. Despite production and supply chain issues, e-bike production increased in H1 2021. The demand for e-bikes is unbroken and is expected to remain strong, also due to modern mobility concepts.
