More Finnish Workers Switching to Electric Bicycles
Last year, hundreds of thousands of bicycles were sold in Finland but just a few thousand were electric. The main reason boils down to cost. Prices can run as high as a couple thousand euros.
Post employees say electric bicycles ease the burden when making deliveries. About 1,500 delivery workers at postal service Itella use a bicycle at work. About one third have switched to electric bikes.
“Older workers can use electric bicycles if they need to. And if the terrain is hilly, an electric bike is made available,” says deliverer Janne Kyttä of Kuopio.
