An electric bike that replaces a car or moped is the obvious choice from an environmental point of view. The electric bicycle does not emit any dangerous exhaust gases, it reduces the step for people to choose the bicycle instead of the car and in the long term it contributes to a better environment (and health!). The electric bike is simply a climate-smart alternative.
Having the goal of increasing the cycling means that more transport take place by bicycle, car traffic is reduced and it helps to create a good built environment for people.
A society with a high bicycle usage is a society with more accessible space, less air quality problems and less noise. It is also a society with a high quality of life and good accessibility for everyone. Another positive effect with increased bicycle use is that it provides improved public health.
In order for the bicycle to really be a type of transport to be expected, it is necessary that the bicycle is competitive with other types of traffic. We only get a really high percentage of bicycle trips when the bicycle is the easiest and fastest way of traveling.
