E-bikes Should Be Included In The National EV Strategy

Bicycle Queensland says the Federal Government is missing a major opportunity to create real change in the move towards electric vehicles.

BQ has joined with all the major bicycle advocacy groups in a submission to the Federal Government’s National Electric Vehicle strategy.

The group has called for the Strategy to recognise the potential for e-bikes and other light electric vehicles to contribute to the goals of the National EV Strategy.

E-bikes and micro-mobility are increasingly popular as car replacements for daily commuting trips, they address the cost-of-living crisis through significantly lower acquisition and running costs than EVs, they are viable for the short transport trips that make up half of all trips each day in Australia and their use contributes to health, environmental and community benefits.

But at the moment, e-bikes are not included in the National Strategy.
