Electric Bike Popularity Soars: Top States Leading the Charge Revealed in New Study

Exploring the Growing Trend of E-Bikes and Which Regions are Embracing the Technology

  • Hawaii is the top state for e-bike interest, according to our analysis.
  • California and Utah follow as the second and third most interested.
  • Western US states lead the pack in electric bike interest with many in top five.

Having expertise in electric bicycles, we have recently conducted a study to determine which states in the United States are most interested in e-bikes. After analyzing Google Trends search data for the keyword “electric bike” in the last twelve months across each state, we discovered some interesting insights.

According to our study, Hawaii is the state with the highest interest in electric bikes. A total search score of 100 indicates that the state has the highest level of interest in the term “electric bike” among its residents. Searches for electric bikes have been on the rise in the US, with Google Trends data showing an all-time high during the summer of 2022.

California and Utah followed closely behind as the second and third most interested states in electric bikes. Most of the top five spots on the list are occupied by western US states. As more and more people turn to e-bikes as a low-carbon and cost-effective alternative to cars, as well as an effective means of promoting a healthier lifestyle, we are pleased to see a significant increase in e-bike use.

On the other hand, Mississippi ranks as the state least interested in electric bikes, with Texas and Georgia following closely behind.

Being enthusiasts and experts in this field, we find these findings quite intriguing. It is interesting to see how different regions of the US are adopting e-bike technology and how interest in this mode of transportation has evolved over the years. Hopefully, in the future, we will be able to see how this trend develops.
