E- Power Bike

2) About E-Power Bike

  • An electric bicycle also known as an e-bike is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. Many kinds of e-bikes are available worldwide, from e-bikes that only have a small motor to assist the rider's pedal-power (i.e. pedelecs) to more powerful e-bikes which are closer to moped-style functionality
  • E-bikes use rechargeable batteries and the lighter ones can travel up to 25 to 32 km/h (16 to 20 mph), depending on local laws, while the more high-powered varieties can often do more than 45 km/h (28 mph).
  • In some markets, such as Germany as of 2013, they are gaining in popularity and taking some market share away from conventional bicycles, while in others, such as China as of 2010, they are replacing fossil fuel-powered mopeds and small motorcycles.
  • Depending on local laws, many e-bikes (e.g., pedelecs) are legally classified as bicycles rather than mopeds or motorcycles. This exempts them from the more stringent laws regarding the certification and operation of more powerful two-wheelers which are often classed as electric motorcycles.

3) Reduction Of Co2 Footprint Calculation

  • Approx 200gms of Co2 Emssion is saved per km by uasage electric Cycle.
  • So If we Consider Avg.30 Kms of usage per cycle we save 6kg of Co2 Emission per day.
  • For 1000 E-cycles in a city we save approx 6000kg of Co2 Emmision per day.
  • There is a fair amount of reduction in carbon footprint which would help save our mother narure.

4) Operating Cost For 3 yrs & ROI

Price Of Electrical/Unit 5RS/Unit
Energy Consumed By E-cycle to full charge 1.5 Units
