According to Bike Europe, ‘The hot and rain-free super summer of 2018 made e-bike sales skyrocket across Europe.’

In Scandinavia, their popularity in Sweden was accelerated by a  government subsidy of up to €1000 on the purchase of an e-bike, resulting in sales of over 100K e-bikes from September 2017 – August 2018; an increase of over 50% on the same period one year earlier. Meanwhile, in Denmark, e-bike imports have  quadrupled over the past five years and sales have a market share of almost 10%.

In Germany, 980,000 units were sold last year. Today every one out of four bicycles sold in Germany is an electric one. Last year in the Netherlands sales increased by 38% to over 400K units making e-bikes the largest category in the Netherlands and becoming the new standard.

In France. 2018 e-bike sales increased by 21% to an all-time high of 338,000 units. The category now represents €535m in sales – over 40% of French market total bicycle market value.

With a total of 111,000 units, almost every third bicycle sold in Switzerland was electrified. In Austria, e-bikes now maintain 33% of the bicycle market. Italy’s National Association of Cycle, Motorcycle and Accessories Industry reported a double-digit sales lift in e-bikes. Sales increased by 16.8% to 173,000 units while Italy’s e-bike production jumped by 290% to 102,000 units.

BuzzRack’s e-Scorpion 2 is as convenient as a suitcase, easy to carry and store.

E-bikes tend to be heavy and are equipped with a larger frame and big tire sizes.  So dedicated e-bike rack designs should feature a high load capacity, elastic and adjustable frame fixing points and flexible tire size compatibility. Exhibited at Eurobike 2019, the BuzzRack e-Scorpion 2 E-Bike Rack meets those requirements. 

Plus, users can install the rack on a car without carrying tools by using an integral spanner design.  The rack can tilt for tailgate access.  When not in use, it folds for saving storage space and can be rolled away on its integrated wheels.
