The term Pedelec thus clearly draws a distinction between Pedelec and e-bike, the latter’s motor providing assistance on demand regardless of whether the rider is pedalling or not. Pedelecs with a maximum continuous rated power of up to 250 W and a maximum assisted speed of 25 km/h are classified as conventional bicycles (use of cycle tracks, no license plate required, etc.) by German regulations.
Success story
Pedelecs have been increasingly successful on the German market over the last decade. In the meantime, there are numerous types of electric motors and vehicles available While initially the focus was on city and hybrid bikes, the market for bicycles for use in sporting activities as well as for cargo bikes (transport of passengers or goods) is growing rapidly. Pedelecs are a convenient and comfortable means of transport. By substituting cars, and thus cutting down on emissions, they can contribute to sustainably enhance our quality of life.
In the long run a healthy level of product quality will be the key to successful participation in this thriving market. To this purpose numerous factors need to be taken into consideration. The electric drive system must keep pace with its competitors, the same applies to operating range, stability, assist performance and start-up behaviour on hills.
The mechanical design of Pedelecs, too will also become a challenge not to be underestimated. Increased unladen weight and average speed, in comparison to an unmotorised bicycle, result in significantly increased loads for the vehicle that need to be taken into account when developing and designing a Pedelec that will withstand such stresses and strains in the long run.
