An ebike emits ZERO CO2 – if renewable energy is used to charge the battery. However, if the average UK electricity is used (mix of fossil and renewable) the equivalent CO2 emissions would be 20g per mile
For an economical car: • The emissions alone are about 500g per mile • Without counting the refining of the petrol or diesel • Without counting the CO2 emissions of the manufacturing process
So how green is your e-bike – in the worst case scenario an ebike will offset ALL its carbon emissions after replacing 621 miles of car journeys!
For the bikes themselves…
Noise Polution: Almost Zero
Noxious gasses: Zero
Microplastics: Almost Zero
