What is the average consumption of an eBike in use?
The average power consumption of an eBike with Bosch eBike system is about 11 Wh/mi. This value results from the R200 range test for eBikes with Bosch eBike system.
If we look at the CO2 emissions caused by the electricity consumption, the average CO2 value is 3.2-8 g/mi, depending on the electricity mix. If green electricity is used for charging, an eBike use even completely eliminates CO2 emissions. Compared with this, the CO2 emissions are around 240 g CO2/person mile (PMT) for a car and between 48 and 128 g/PMT for public transportation.
