  • By Propulsion Type - E-bikes considered under this segment include pedal-assisted e-bikes, throttle-assisted e-bikes, and speed pedelec. While the speed limit of pedal and throttle-assisted e-bikes is usually 25 km/h, the speed limit of speed pedelec is generally 45 km/h (28 mph).
Keyword Definition
Pedal Assisted Pedal-assist or pedelec category refers to the electric bikes that provide limited power assistance through torque-assist system and do not have throttle for varying the speed. The power from the motor gets activated upon pedaling in these bikes and reduces human efforts.
Throttle Assisted Throttle-based e-bikes are equipped with the throttle assistance grip, installed on the handlebar, similarly to motorbikes. The speed can be controlled by twisting the throttle directly without the need to pedal. The throttle response directly provides power to the motor installed in the bicycles and speeds up the vehicle without paddling.
Speed Pedelec Speed pedelec is e-bikes similar to pedal-assist e-bikes as they do not have throttle functionality. However, these e-bikes are integrated with an electric motor which delivers power of approximately 500 W and more. The speed limit of such e-bikes is generally 45 km/h (28 mph) in most of the countries.
City/Urban The city or urban e-bikes are designed with daily commuting standards and functions to be operated within the city and urban areas. The bicycles include various features and specifications such as comfortable seats, sit upright riding posture, tires for easy grip and comfortable ride, etc.
Trekking Trekking and mountain bikes are special types of e-bikes that are designed for special purposes considering the robust and rough usage of the vehicles. These bicycles include a strong frame, and wide tires for better and advanced grip and are also equipped with various gear mechanisms which can be used while riding in different terrains, rough grounded, and tough mountainous roads.
Cargo/Utility The e-cargo or utility e-bikes are designed to carry various types of cargo and packages for shorter distances such as within urban areas. These bikes are usually owned by local businesses and delivery partners to deliver packages and parcels at very low operational costs.
Lithium-ion Battery A Li-ion battery is a rechargeable battery, which uses lithium and carbon as its constituent materials. The Li-Ion batteries have a higher density and lesser weight than sealed lead acid batteries and provide the rider with more range per charge than other types of batteries.
Lead Acid Battery A lead acid battery refers to sealed lead acid battery having a very low energy-to-weight and energy-to-volume ratio. The battery can produce high surge currents, owing to its relatively high power-to-weight ratio as compared to other rechargeable batteries.
Other Batteries This includes electric bikes using nickel–metal hydroxide (NiMH), silicon, and lithium-polymer batteries.
Business-to-Business (B2B) The sales of e-bikes to business customers such as urban fleet and logistics company, rental/sharing operators, last-mile fleet operators, and corporate fleet operators are considered under this category.
Business-to-Customers (B2C) The sales of electric scooters and motorcycles to direct consumers is considered under this category. The consumers acquire these vehicles either directly from manufacturers or from other distributers and dealers through online and offline channel.
Unorganized Local OEMs These players are small local manufacturers and assemblers of e-bikes. Most of these manufacturers import the components from China and Taiwan and assemble them locally. They offer the product at low cost in this price sensitive market which give them advantage over organized manufacturers.
Battery-as-a-Service A business model in which the battery of an EV can be rented from a service provider or swapped with another battery when it runs out of charge
Dockless e-Bikes Electric bikes that have self-locking mechanisms and a GPS tracking facility with an average top speed of around 15mph. These are mainly used by bike-sharing companies such as Bird, Lime, and Spin.
