An electric bicycle, also known as an e-bike, is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. E-bikes use rechargeable batteries to power a motor which can be either positioned in the wheel hub (hub motor) or a mid-drive (mid motor), positioned by the pedal crank.

The world’s population of e-bikes is expanding rapidly due to recent developments in electric motor and battery technology. It is estimated there are now around 250 million e-bikes in operation around the world.

In New Zealand an electric bike may be ridden on the road without a licence or registration as long as the power output does not exceed 300W. All the road rules associated with normal bicycles apply to e-bikes. As such, all e-Bikes must comply with the ASNZ Standards for safety. (Note that very few e-Bikes sold in the NZ market have ASNZS safety approvals).
