Electric cars get a lot of attention but another electric mode of transpiration might just overtake them. The number of electric bikes is climbing up and the transportation option may prove more popular for one simple reason: Accessibility.
No new network of chargers need to be built for electric bikes to catch on. Unlike electric cars, bikes can be plugged into standard outlets found in homes and offices. Although they don’t have the range of electric cars, for people who live in urban environments, the smaller ranges just isn’t a problem.
You can take your bike to work, plug it in and drive home on a full battery after your shift. Electric car chargers are a bit harder to find, depending on your area. People are catching on to this trend and their sales are going up.
