Increasing urbanisation and a desire to move away from cars for motorised transportation are opening opportunities for alternative types of vehicles. Low Speed Electric Vehicles (LSEV), particularly e-bikes and e-scooters, are uniquely positioned to be a primary benefactor of this trend since they are low in cost relative to cars, require minimum or no licensing and are a sustainable means of transportation, able to leverage existing and future mainstream EV charging infrastructures.
This report looks at the LSEV market, with a particular focus on e-bikes. It highlights the impact of technological developments on core electrical components such as electric motors and batteries and outlines how innovation in the integration of display/control units with advanced drive systems as well as external devices such as smartphones is enhancing the riding experience and transforming e-bikes and other LSEVs into truly connected vehicles.
