Poles take too long to transition to electric bicycles

The market for electric bicycles is developing slowly in Poland, mainly due to the high prices of such vehicles. These high prices are the main obstacle to purchasing an e-bike, according to experts from the Polish Cycling Association on the occasion of World Bicycle Day, which falls on June 3. They believe that introducing subsidies for the purchase of electric two-wheelers could be a solution. This type of support is successfully implemented in other European countries. 

"In the Polish electromobility program, we have subsidies for cars, motorcycles, and scooters, but bicycles have been forgotten," Mateusz Pytko, the president of the Polish Cycling Association, said.

In Europe, the market for electric bicycles is stable, and buyers of such vehicles can benefit from subsidies offered by local and national programs. All of this is aimed at making potential buyers consider bicycles as an attractive means of transportation due to their competitive pricing. In Poland, however, the legislator has not provided this type of support, which, according to experts from the Polish Cycling Association, hinders the development of the electric bicycle market. Only 10 percent of Poles have switched to such vehicles, but that is still twice as many as last year.
