China – The World’s Leading Market of E-Bikes

The process of industrialization has given much contribution to the development of a country. However there is a price for it. China is often criticized for its industrial pollution which has caused widespread environmental and health problems. Pressured by the international communities and the health problems of its population,the country has made one of the most important improvement to protect the environment. Some has said that China has done more for the environment than other industrialized countries during their earlier stages of development.

There is a fast increase of cars and traffic jams in China. However, most of the individuals still uses bicycle as transportation. When I first arrived at Shanghai on November 2014, I was really surprised by the number of 2 wheeled vehicles that circulates on the road. Most of them are electric bikes.  Let’s check them out.

The model in the photo below is very common.

The vespa-style electric bikes are eye-catching and are popular among expats.

Many main roads in China have paths for bicycle. Even though not all Chinese respect the traffic rules, it is quite safe and convenient to transport with bike if you’re extra careful.

Today, China is the world’s leading producer of e-bikes. Recently, China’s largest search engine, Baidu, revealead that they’re working on the production of a smart bike, called DuBike.
