CI.N launches new electric vehicle news page, latest issue online

Cycling Industry News has today added a new page specifically for electric vehicle news, which will cover all things micromobility, electric scooter and electric bike. The tab is now found on our homepage under EV News, as highlighted in blue.

The new electric vehicle news section comes as market trends continue to emerge from which bicycle retailers can take advantage. Increasingly the skillsets found within our trade’s workshops are well-suited to service work and sales on vehicles such as electric scooters and the many varieties of electric cargo vehicle now beginning to become more commonplace in our cities.

The addition comes alongside the release of our latest Trade Journal which is now readable online.

This issue comes packed with the usual mix of market data, a deep analysis of the momentum behind the cargo bike movement and profiles with some exciting innovators in the biz. Those in the UK bike business wishing to receive a print copy are still entitled to apply for a free subscription here.
