Question for written answer E-003841-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Deirdre Clune (PPE)

 Subject:  E-bikes
 Answer in writing 

By 20 July 2018, the Commission will decide whether or not to impose provisional anti-dumping duties on e-bikes from China. Under the lesser duty rule, these duties might still amount to 189% ad valorem.

E-bikes are growing in popularity and are particularly attractive to senior citizens and commuters. They alleviate congestion on our roads and in our cities while helping people to remain active and independent.

Has the Commission considered that these duties go against the EU’s ambitions for sustainable mobility and clean air while also adding costs to consumers?

Given that the European industry is making record profits, based on what data is the Commission examining whether there is injury to the European market?

Can the Commission in any way show that the increased import numbers it mentioned in its Registration Regulation ((EU) 2018/671) are not attributable, at least in part, to members of the complainant EBMA who are themselves selling cheaper than average e-bikes?
