E-Bikes Trend in Denmark

E-bikes are on trend at Scandinavia’s largest bicycle show staged in Danish Capital Copenhagen.

Visitors are trying out the latest two-wheelers at the Copenhagen bike show. And when it comes to trends, they’re increasingly battery-powered.

A recent report by the danish road directorate found sales of e-bikes have soared in the country. The market has grown from nothing in 2011 to almost 25 percent this year.

The report's authors say that e-bikes could occupy 50 percent of the market within a decade.

One of the exhibitors at the show, danish bike brand kil-demoes says that battery-powered bikes now make up well over 40 percent of their total sales.
