Hey guys, Dustin here, CEO of Sixthreezero. Today, we're going to answer the question of where are electric bikes made. Stay tuned.

All right, so let's answer the question where are electric bikes made. Now, electric bikes are actually made all over the world. There are factories in many, many different places, many, many different countries. If I had to answer the question as of today, 2021, most electric bikes are still made overseas, primarily in China, Vietnam, Cambodia, in terms of the electric bikes in the U.S. Now, I've heard about some electric bike factories opening up in the U.S. There may be very, very limited amounts of electric bikes made in the U.S. as of today. I say that because I don't think there are. As far as I know, I'm not aware of any electric bikes made in the U.S., but that could be changing.


Harley Davidson has come out with an electric bike. It's possible in the near future, there will be more electric bike production in the U.S. I'm actually certain there will be. I've heard about it. But as of today, I can't tell you with a hundred percent certainty that any electric bikes are made in the U.S., but again, that's a changing dynamic, and there may be some. But primarily, most, I would say somewhere around 90% or more of all-electric bikes in the U.S. are made, as I said, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, but it's a changing landscape. And we're seeing a lot of things right now coming out of China and moving to different countries. There's also... I take that back, actually. I left out Taiwan. So Taiwan is also another very important country. So China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia, primarily the suppliers of electric bikes to the U.S.


With that said now, there are a lot of electric bikes produced in Europe as well. Most of the European bike factories or most of the e-bikes produced in Europe are being supplied into Europe. Europe actually has a... The bike market is very important to Europe. And so they also have mandates on the number of imports that can come in from outside of the country. So actually Eastern Europe, and Spain now that I know about too, there are electric bike factories all over Europe, supplying Europe.


Now, there may be some electric bikes also imported into the U.S. out of European factories. The only thing is they're definitely going to be more expensive, but if you're looking for the highest quality or something, not Asia made, that's an option to try to find bikes produced out of Europe. But again, primarily those are going to be the higher price point, and again, in the U.S., not a ton of electric bikes are being imported into the U.S. from Europe.


Now, also, there are factories in South America for electric bikes. For Mexico, I believe there maybe, but it's also important to remember that a lot of the components are being imported even into Mexico from Asia as well. There are also electric-bike factories in India, but not as much. Still to this day, the primary production for electric bikes is out of Asia, as I said. Although Europe does a lot. And this is an ever-changing landscape. I believe that over the course of the next 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years, we're going to see USA production, we're going to see a decrease in Asia, and we may see more and more coming out of Europe because that market's really exploding, possibly more out of India or Mexico.


So I hope that answers the question. If you're in the market for an electric bike, check out the electric bikes on our website.
