One thing I'm sure they are not concerned about is any loss of sales of its automobile or truck divisions due to increased sales of e-bikes, whether they are GM products or not. E-bikes may have a niche market but it doesn't and won't affect the public's needs or desires for the regular products sold by any of the automobile/truck manufacturers.

I also doubt many people who currently own automobiles or trucks see e-bikes as the answer to their prayers or dreams to take up a car free lifestyle.
