These stories seem to consign to oblivion that electric cars take up as much space as their combustion counterparts and, arguably, take up even more of our time than guzzler cars – and that, in terms of sheer numbers, the real game changer is the electric bicycle.

... one of the first online newspapers in Vietnam...
University student creates green electricity-powered bicycle
("A bicycle created by a university student uses two kinds of clean energy, the first of its kind in Vietnam."):
http://english.vietnamnet.vn/fms/educat ... cycle.html

Starts:
It can run 60 kilometers after every charge and can charge while someone is riding it.

The bicycle was invented by Nguyen Huu Trung, a first year student in the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Faculty at the HCMC University of Technical Education.
... includes:
Trung’s bicycle operates with two sources of energy – solar energy and energy from electromagnetic induction. He said this is the first vehicle in Vietnam running with two kinds of energy.
[Cough Cough]...

... and:
Trung is continuing to work on his bicycle and is contacting bicycle manufacturers to commercialize the product.

It is estimated that the bicycle will cost VND5 million, much cheaper than electric bicycles available in the market.
(Giggle Convert currently 5 mill. Vietnamese "Dong" equals about 220 US bucks...)

... and ends:
Trung’s bicycle has been praised by lecturers and friends who say it is useful in large urban areas where traffic jams occur regularly and the air quality is worsening.

The latest report from the HCMC Transport Department said there are 8 million vehicles in circulation, including 7.3 million motorbikes and 640,000 cars.

The motorbike boom in the country is attributed to local authorities’ failure to develop public transport.

A report from GreenID found that the air quality in HCMC is better than in Hanoi, but the southern city still has 78 days a year when the dust concentration is higher than the WHO standard (25 μg/m3).
(Wiki: "HCMC" ie "Ho Chi Minh City", also informally known by its former name as Saigon, is the largest city in Vietnam by population. Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and the country's second largest city by population. The population in 2015 was estimated at 7.7 million people. The city lies on the right bank of the Red River. Hanoi is 1,760 km (1,090 mi) north of Ho Chi Minh City)

Anhui is a landlocked province of the People's Republic of China located in the eastern region of the country. Located across the basins of the Yangtze River and the Huai River, it borders Jiangsu to the east, Zhejiang to the southeast, Jiangxi to the south, Hubei to the southwest, Henan to the northwest, and Shandong for a short section in the north.

'Kangaroo Father' from Jinzhai Receives Support:
http://english.anhuinews.com/system/201 ... 6282.shtml

Starts:
The story of "Kangaroo Father", a food delivery worker who had his 8-month-old son strapped to his body as he went about delivering orders in winter, has generated much buzz in the city.

The 33-year-old from Jinzhai, Anhui province, works for Ele.me, one of the biggest online food delivery platforms in China. He was also found to be using an electric bicycle that was modified to fit a rain cover.
Image

... and:
The deliveryman, Yu Shujiang, said he was forced to do so because his wife is nursing a broken leg. Moreover, his elderly family members are incapable of looking after the child and the couple is unable to afford a babysitter.

While many people have expressed sympathy for the man's plight, others have criticized his actions as dangerous. According to the law, only juveniles older than 6 years old are allowed to be carried on a non-motorized vehicle provided that there is a child safety seat. In addition, modifying an electric vehicle to include a rain cover is illegal.

After news of the incident broke out, Ele.me and its logistics partner gave Yu a subsidy equivalent to three months of his salary and a brand new e-bike. The company also ordered Yu to stay home and care for his wife. In order to ensure that Yu does so, Ele.me temporarily suspended his delivery account.

Chen Jie, a company representative from Ele.me, said that a charity organization under the company helped raise the subsidy, and employees were sent to deliver daily necessities and the cash to Yu.

"The employees conveyed our concern and explained the safety delivery standards to Yu. We look forward to having Yu come back to work at Ele.me after his wife recovers," said Chen.

Yu promised that he would not return to work before his wife recovers. His wife has also said that she would return to work and share the childcare responsibilities following her recovery.

City A.M. is a free, business-focused newspaper distributed in and around London, England. Its certified distribution was 90,911 copies a day in December 2016...
Deliveroo is going green: Riders will start using electric scooters and bikes early in 2018:
http://www.cityam.com/277984/deliveroo- ... c-scooters

Starts:
Deliveroo has announced an early Christmas present to residents of London, as it has said it will begin to trial electric scooters to cut down on noise and air pollution next year.

The meal delivery company has said its riders in the capital will be able to rent electric-powered scooters and bikes early in 2018 "at a reduced cost compared to market price".

Meanwhile 300 Deliveroo-branded electric bikes will be available to cyclists in the spring, which will speed up delivery times meaning riders can theoretically earn more.
Includes:
For the e-scooters, the company is hoping to work with an as-yet unnamed specialist producer to make the vehicles available in the first quarter of 2018.

It added that these would be eligible for a government low-emissions grant, which pays for 20 per cent of the purchase price up to a maximum of £1,500.

The e-bike programme is a little more adaptable. Firstly, Deliveroo is set to work with ETT Industries which will create the 300-strong fleet of branded electric bikes for spring. Riders can rent these at a reduced price directly from ETT, either daily or weekly.

Secondly, Deliveroo said it aims to work with producers of a device which can be attached to normal bicycles to make them electric. Several riders have already tried them to positive feedback, the firm said, and it hoped to roll them out from May with 40 per cent off.
