EBWR continues to provide information important to the movers and shakers in the LEV industry and those expecting to enter this dynamic space. 2015 edition includes: sales estimates for the major regions of the world out to 2035, trends in battery, motor and fuel cell technology, product innovation, identification of top manufacturers and regions where growth will occur, new initiative by the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association to work with USA states on e-bike regulations, regulation changes in other nations, growing e-motorcycle products, four wheel EV technology impact on e-bikes, and much more. 2016 Update includes trends in the e-bike and e-scooter business, major propulsion system makers identified, USA sales down but individual companies/stores were up, globally EB sales are growing with more locations, General Motors is working on an e-bike, prediction that e-bikes and e-scooters will be collision-free with adaptive automotive technology, e-scooter rentals a hit in San Francisco, the LEV world is CHANGING NOW.
EBWR suggests e-bike business paradigm shifts may be underway.
Paradigm shift 1: Auto makers, and auto suppliers, are entering the two-wheel business with expanded technology and marketing options.
Paradigm Shift 2: The collision avoidance technology explosion in the four-wheel market will be adapted to e-bikes making them virtually collision free eventually. E-bike sales will then explode also.
Paradigm Shift 3: Jay Townley, noted bike consultant, proposes a way for independent bike dealers to be more customer centric thus stronger, a provocative shift (articles both in EBWR 2015 and 2016).
