E-Cycling intelligence

Does the e-bike offer new opportunities to get people out of their car and onto (e-)bikes?

This research explores the effects of people changing over from cars to electric bikes on their daily commute. The e-bike has advantages over the regular bicycle as far as comfort and speed is concerned. This would make it more attractive to commute by bike. To what extent does switching over to the e-bike lead to a long-term behavioural change?
