A new study has found that a bike can be as good as a car in the short term, but as good or better in the long run.
In fact, a study published in the journal Transportation Research Part B found that for every kilometre of travel, the cost of an electric bike would fall by 25 per cent compared to the cost a conventional car.
The researchers found that the savings of an E-bike, which uses a battery system to generate electricity, is between 40 and 50 per cent.
If the cost were to fall to zero, the study’s authors said, a full electric bike could be cheaper than a car.
In other words, a motorized vehicle with a range of up to 100 kilometres (62 miles) would be cheaper to drive than a petrol-powered vehicle with the same range, but an electric vehicle would be more efficient.
“Electric vehicles are often compared to a gas-powered car, but the comparison is incomplete,” said co-author Christopher A. Stolzenberg, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Electric vehicles, by comparison, do not require a large amount of gas to drive and can travel faster than conventional vehicles, so they are less expensive.
E-bikes are also more energy efficient, with an average range of about 75 kilometres (44 miles) compared to 70 kilometres (43 miles) for conventional cars.
A motorized car can carry about 500 kilograms (1,800 pounds), whereas an E of about 130 kilograms (400 pounds) can fit into a standard-size suitcase.
With a range this small, the electric bike is a relatively small part of the vehicle fleet.
Stolzenburg said the study was based on a review of nearly 1,000 electric bicycles bought by the US Federal Highway Administration between 2005 and 2010.
But he said there were also more than 100,000 bikes sold in the US, so the true figure could be higher.
He said the cost per kilometre was only an estimate, and that the price of an average electric bike varies by model.
It depends on the type of electric bike, the range, the price, the weight, the battery capacity and the type, he said.
According to the study, an E electric bike can cost as little as $3,400.
An E-bicycle can cost $2,800, with a full-electric range of between 200 and 250 kilometres.
And an E bike could save the equivalent of $20,000 annually in fuel costs, he added.
For comparison, a diesel vehicle costs about $4,000.
Electrification is the process of converting a battery from a fossil fuel into electricity.
Most electric cars and trucks are electrified with an internal combustion engine.
To use an electric car, the engine is driven by a battery.
Some electric bikes use a battery pack, which is a small box with a lithium ion battery in it.
Many electric bikes are made from lightweight materials like carbon fiber or aluminum.
Tesla, for example, uses lithium-ion batteries in its electric cars.
However, the costs vary by model and by what kind of battery the bike is made from.
There are three main types of electric bicycles.
Pulse electric bikes, for instance, use electric motors to generate the electricity.
These include electric motorcycles, which have a battery, a generator and a motor, and electric scooters, which use a single battery and a battery and generator.
These electric bikes can be more fuel-efficient, but cost more.
Cargo electric bikes convert electricity to electric power.
These can include electric bicycles, scooters and electric motorcycles.
Bikes are generally smaller, have fewer pedals, have a more upright design and typically weigh less than electric motorcycles and scooters.
All these electric bikes and scooter electric motorcycles have a range, which means that the distance travelled is divided by the total number of kilometres.
The study found that an electric bicycle would save you an average of $1,500 per year.
This is because an E cycle is lighter, easier to pedal and has a lower center of gravity than an electric motorcycle.
That means an electric cycle is also more fuel efficient.
For a full range, an electric scooter would be $3.50 per kilometer, and an electric motor would cost $1.75 per kilometers.
While electric scoops would save an average $4 per year, an average commuter would save $1 per kilometere.
Of course, the bike might cost more than an E, too.
A full-size electric bike will cost between $1 million and $5 million.
You would need to pay around $2.5 million to rent an E and $4.2 million to buy an E. Because an E’s range depends on what kind the bike uses, it’s usually sold with an option that
