With growing congestion costing the Australian economy billions of dollars per year, and average speeds in peak hour falling to less than 25 KPH in our capital cities, Brisbane based e-bike manufacturer AVE, has launched Australia's first e-bike leasing scheme for ABN holders.
"e-bikes have huge role to play in solving our congestion problem, our growing concerns over air quality in our cities, and increasing levels of obesity and inactivity in the workplace. Unlike our more well known self driving electric car counterparts, you don't need to dig expensive tunnels to take advantage of our congestion beating e-bikes. Just jump on and start riding" said AVE CEO, Nick Willis.
Europe has already seen the light where e-bikes are concerned, with Scotland the latest country to launch subsidies for e-bikes, joining Paris, Sweden and Norway, who all offer incentives to people to leave their cars behind.
Beyond the obvious benefits in food and parcel delivery in high congestion areas (UBER recently acquired a share in an US based e-bike company). The predictable journey times for e-bikes make them a great option for business meetings and appointments.
At 10c to charge for a range of 100+km, our e-bikes are a fraction of the ownership and running costs of a car (electric or otherwise), and that's before you take into account the productivity benefits of beating congestion, and not having to worry about the frustration and expense of car parking.
With the launch of our AVE e-bike leasing scheme, the ownership costs for one of Australia's best all round e-bikes is comparable to the cost of a cup of coffee per day.
