CONEBI’s 2016 Data Shows 22% Increase In e-bike Sales.

CONEBI’s 2016 Data Shows 22% Increase In e-bike Sales.

The annual report from the Confederation of the European Bicycle Industry  (CONEBI) uses manufacturing and sales data to compare the performance of cycling markets in different European countries.

 Just under 20 million bicycles were sold across Europe and that’s 22% up on the previous year.  Leading the way was Germany with 21% of sales followed by Britain with 16%.  When it comes to electric bikes 1.6m were sold across the continent but Britain only accounted for about 5% of sales putting us back in 7th place.

 Overall production of e-bikes across Europe increased by 13% year on year but imports from the Far East was up from 665,000 in 2015 to 1m.

Although the this is normal practice in the ebike industry it has lead to a slow up take in the market due to the inherint problem with manufacturing in the Far East. Bucking the trend while still being competivie CycloTricity foucs on quality assemble and inovative design. With British based customer service and spares stored in our Southampton warehouse.

Client Testimonials

Hi Raj.
 
I just wanted to thank you for your kindness and help.
 
My dad who is 72 bought himself and his wife a kit each a couple of years back and he says it is the best thing he has ever done.  He stops and tells anyone who will listen that buying the bike has changed his life. He already had a bike but found it such a struggle to do anything other than ride around the streets so he didn’t really bother. He heard about electric bikes and went on a mission to find the best. He settled on Cyclotricity.  He started off cycling a short distance and then using his throttle to keep him going whilst he had a little rest.  Soon his fitness improved and now he goes out for miles and uses the throttle less but loves having the freedom to take on long distances. 
 
Best wishes

Dear Ben
 
I would just like to Thank you for the fantastic service that I received from your company. As you know I had an issue with my digital meter, I had a phone call from Ben at Cyclotricity the same day and this morning a new replacement had arrived.
This is fantastic service, I am so pleased that I purchased my bike through Cyclotricity. I will log onto your website and write a customer review and I am thinking in the summertime I may even purchase a electric bike for my wife, if and when I do I will certainly buy it through Cyclotricity.
 
Keep up the good work, I wish you all the success in 2017.
Normally people write in to complain but I feel that it's nice to tell people that they are doing things right.
 
Kind Regards

Hi Raj,
 
I just want to thank you for all your support through this build. You were/ are a great help!! Thanks for getting the technical team involved where necessary!
 
I feel like I should hire a model to stand next to the bike, to be able to send you a very nice photo!! As it is I will be wise and you will appreciate it if the photo is only of the bike and doesn't have me anywhere near!!
 
Have a good day!
