With an electric bike, commuting couldn’t be easier. You get the same fresh air, freedom and exercise you would from riding a regular bike, with the benefit of assistance when you need it! E-bikes are also more eco-friendly than driving and will save you money.

Cycling up hills can be hard – very hard! With an e-bike, it doesn’t have to be. E-bikes provide assistance up to 15.5mph making every trip a breeze. Plus, most e-bikes have different levels of assistance and you can turn the assistance level up whenever you need it the most.

Depending on various factors, most e-bikes have a maximum range of between 40-100 miles. For most people, that would mean you could commute to and from work for a full week, on only one charge!

Transport Select Committee recommend e-scooters are legalised

In a recent report, E-scooters: pavement nuisance or transport innovation, the Committee says that e-scooters have the potential to offer a low cost, accessible and environmentally friendly alternative to the private car.

Whilst supporting the introduction and use of e-scooters, the Committee advises that current rental trials and any plans for legalisation should not be to the detriment of pedestrians, particularly disabled people.

Halfords’ view: Introduce government support for second-hand EV purchases to close the “green gap”

Leading motoring products and services provider Halfords is calling on government to support those looking to buy a used electric vehicle (EV), through interest free loans or grants.

There is currently financial support for those looking to purchase brand new EVs, through the Plug-In Grant, but this is capped at just £3,000.
