A new large-scale study by E-bike Monitor estimates 14.2 billion euros worth of light electric vehicles, including e-bikes and e-scooters, are currently owned by the Dutch.
The study concluded that 42 percent of Dutch individuals over the age of 18 own one or more light electric vehicles, equating to 6 million LEV riders and 6.2 million vehicles. The study had a sample size of 5,000.
Within this bracket, electrical bicycles hold the largest share, with the number of owners growing from 4.6 million to 5.5 million in the last year alone. This equates to an €11.8 billion market value, with the total LEV market growing 24% to reach a value of €12.4 billion.
Alongside a growing market share, the price of electric vehicles also rose in the last year, with the average cost for a city e-bike rising from €1,876 to €2,036.
