Some love it, some hate it but there is no denying that Black Friday is one of the few days of the year you can pick up a real bargain. If you’ve been thinking about getting a new electric bike, Black Friday is definitely the best day to pick one up cheap.
Black Friday has turned from a one day a year event to a period that spans weeks, this is beneficial when making a large purchase like an ebike, especially when you are buying it through the cycle to work scheme.
With all this in mind we decided to write a little blog to help you… you guessed it… buy an electric bike on Black Friday!
How much can I save?
Depending on the bike you want we have discounts ranging from €200 up to €350 from Thursday the 17th November to Monday the 5th of December.
You can save up to €731 with the cycle to work scheme! Let’s take our Electric Avenue Air for example; RRP is €1,950 minus €200 black Friday discount, minus cycle to work scheme savings €731 = this bike only costs you €1,019! (tax band dependant)
How to get one on the bike to work scheme?
If you buy a bike during the black Friday sale through the cycle to work scheme, we only take a €100 deposit and that will secure your discount. So even if the paperwork and voucher take a couple of weeks with your employer, you are safe in the knowledge that the discount is still valid and you’ll get the bike at the discounted rate.
How much does it cost to charge electric bike?
The crucial thing to consider here is the size of the battery, the battery size is basically the equivalent to your fuel tank in the car – bigger the tank, the further the range. Our Electric Avenue C4 has a 500Wh battery pack, this is good for real world range of about 75Km depending on various factors.
To charge this battery up fully will cost you €0.21c based on recent figures on kWh prices from Electric Ireland
75km is about what you will get from a gallon of diesel in an economical modern car – a gallon of diesel is currently costing around €9! It’s time to leave the car at home and get on an electric bike… don’t you think?
