It is estimated that there are some 1.5 billion vehicles in the world.

Electric Vehicles

Why electric vehicles?

Lithium battery Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been taking a growing share of the new car market, as he technology improves range, charging times, battery sizes and recycling options, extending user choices to realistically challenge Internal Compustion Engine (ICE) rivals, albeit with a far more narrow choice of nakes and models.

Car and lift sharing

Car Clubs/ Car shares

Car-sharing is a growing and novel way to reduce our emissions in several Countries, while  are a new model of car rental allowing members of a club to rent cars for short periods of time, often by the hour, at good rates, for a small, monhtly membership fee. Car clubs can be a commercial business, run by a company, public agency, or it can be a membership-based co-operative.  Carsharing is part of a larger trend of shared mobility, another form of which is Lift sharing, with individuals – often colleagues in the same firm, or students in the same university – giving colleagues lifts on specified days. Carsharing services are now available in over 1,000 cities in several countries. – source: Wikipedia.

Lift sharing (car-pooling)

Carpooling (also car-sharing, ride-sharing and lift-sharing) is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car, and prevents the need for others to have to drive to a location themselves.

By having more people using one vehicle, carpooling reduces each person’s travel costs such as: fuel costs, tolls, and the stress of driving. Carpooling is also a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to travel as sharing journeys reduces air pollution, carbon emissions, traffic congestion on the roads, and the need for parking spaces.  Source: – Wikipedia

An electric bicycle also known as an e-bike or ebike is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used to assist propulsion. Many kinds of e-bikes are available worldwide, but generally fall into two broad categories. Bikes that assist the rider’s pedal-power (i.e. pedelecs) and bikes that add a throttle, integrating moped-style functionality. Both retain the ability to be pedaled by the rider and are therefore not electric motorcycles.

E-bikes use rechargeable batteries and typically travel up to 25 to 32 km/h (16 to 20 mph). High-powered varieties can often travel more than 45 km/h (28 mph). In some markets, such as Germany as of 2013, they are gaining in popularity and taking some market share away from conventional bicycles, while in others, such as China as of 2010, they are replacing fossil fuel-powered mopeds and small motorcycles.

E-bikes function like hybrid electric vehicles since the electric motor combines battery propulsion with another source of electricity but this time by pedal power instead of internal combustion engine power so in some cases the terms used would be hybrid electric bicycle or hybrid pedal-electric bicycle

Depending on local laws, many e-bikes (e.g., pedelecs) are legally classified as bicycles rather than mopeds or motorcycles. This exempts them from the more stringent laws regarding the certification and operation of more powerful two-wheelers which are often classed as electric motorcycles. E-bikes can also be defined separately and treated under distinct Electric bicycle laws.

E-bikes are the electric motor-powered versions of motorized bicycles, which have been in use since the late 19th century. Some bicycle-sharing systems – Source: Wikipedia
