A customized motor to fit your bike can flatten hills and you won't even break a sweat
Forgot something at the grocery store? Need a battery for the remote? Going to dinner or the movies? That's a job for an E-bike
Want to keep up with the young people? Or maybe a picnic on the lake? Find new places without getting honked at for looking.
Save some money. Here's how:
The average car payment is $380 for a used car, $530 for a new car. Insurance average in Kentucky is $2000 annually. Average mileage is 13,500. Kentucky is in the top 10 of miles per year in the US at over 17,000 miles. The average car gets 25mpg. And as of this entry gas is nearing $3/gallon. Then windshield wiper blades, tires, tire rotation, oil changes, timing belts, various fluids, tail light replacements and everything else a car needs.
That comes to a grand total of
((380*12) car payment + $2000 insurance + 2,040 gas + $500 maintenance = $9,100 for a used car
((530*12) car payment + $2000 insurance + 2,040 gas + $500 maintenance = $10,900 for a new car
The IRS allows $0.58 per mile. For the average Kentucky resident that is $9,860.
Someone is driving 17,000 miles a year or 326 miles a week or 50 miles a day. Maybe it's not you. Recalculating for 13,500 miles a year that still works out to $8,680 used and $10,480 new car.
Here is where it gets interesting: Let's put you on an E-bike one day week and maybe more when the weather is nice. Say 70 days during the year you commute by E-bike. You will save 2,450 miles a year on your car which will preserve its resale value, lower your insurance, save you gas and increase the life span of all those things on your car that always cost more than you think. At $0.58 per mile....drum roll please...that a savings of $1421.
We think you will save more than that. Imagine if more and more people joined in. The roads wouldn't need as much work and maybe save us all some tax money!
What does it cost to convert? Depending on what your bike needs, it just might pay for itself in the first year. Most E-bikes are used more than 70 days per year. There are about 30 weeks between April and November, excluding rainy days that could account for 150 days of e-bike use. That would double savings for a total of $2842.
