The whole point of an e-bike is: 1/It is good for the environment when you ise it insteadnof using the car. 2/Less congestuon on the roads. 3/It gives you plenty of activity and excercise.

Hahaha! Nice try Wildcat. But you are right! There is nothing special and nothing to brag about! And that is why I am not.

Hahaha! We used to say things like that as well! Driving 500Km in 3 hours at 150km/h speeds is not an average user profile. It is just not a problem.

Yes. The anti-nuclear movement has to bear their share of responsibility for a lot of CO2-emissions. To clarify re: prebens idiotic statement.

Fuel tax is very high and has been very high since the 80’s. However the norwegian state does not lack funding, it has a very high income, so it is not a big problem at present.

Yes, the specific reason for the high number in march is the Tesla 3 being introduced to the market. 1/1000 norwegians bought a Tesla 3 last month.

Honda Jazz/Fit started as the Fitta.

No. That is an incorrect assumption. The Cello is 1/5 of a persons weight, and it is better secured to the seat than a person. Per pure facts and logic, it is therefore a false assumption.
