Electric bicycle forecast, EV charging in Beijing.
Study tip: Navigant Research predicts that the market for e-bikes will grow only slightly from 31.7 million sold worldwide this year to 40.3 million in 2023. China’s marketshare could drop from now 91 percent to 85 percent in the next decade, according to Navigant.
Reading tip: Bureaucracy and missing infrastructure are causing many potential EV buyers in Beijing to reconsider. There are too few possibilities to use public charging points and red tape makes installing a private charging point quite a hassle.
