Stigma about Electric Bikes as a ‘Lazy Option’ to Conventional Cycling may Limit Sales of Pedelecs

Though electric bikes are considered an environmentally friendly option to commute, most consumers are looking at them as a way to indulge in physical activities. However, electric bikes, including pedelecs, are misunderstood as a practice that negates all the health benefits of cycling, which is refraining them from purchasing pedelecs. Low awareness about the availability of pedelecs, which are a combination of a hybrid of human and electrical energy poses critical challenges for stakeholders in the pedelec market.
