The past day 19/07/2018 has marked a historic milestone for the electric bicycles and tricycles market due to the application by the EU of a special tax to units from China.
The European Union, having rejected the arguments presented by the Chinese industry and the group of e-bike importers, has provisionally activated an Anti-Dumping Tax until the end of 2018, which specifically levies Chinese production companies according to a list drawn up internal level by the European Commission.
Provisional anti-dumping duties vary from 77.6% for Bodo Vehicle Group, 27.5% for Giant Electric Vehicle and 37% for most Chinese exporters (a total of 105 producers) of e-bike. Allother Chinese e-bike exporters are affected by a provisional anti-dumping duty of 83.6%.
The provisional anti-dumping duties are applicable to all categories of electric bicycles, Pedelecs L1 e-A and L1 e-B, as well as tricycles.
