Electric scooter is the term that can be used to describe a wide range of vehicles: from electrified kick scooter, to Vespa-like electric moped. While apparently no one thinks they are cool (or they are just afraid to admit), they have proven to be excellent way of commuting to work and especially as a last mile solution…
Bicycles are one of the best commuting vehicles and with the improvements in the electric motor and battery technology the electric bike industry is blooming. The idea behind the electric bike is that you should be able to pedal it just like a regular bicycle and when you get tired, the electric motor kicks in…
Electric Motor Scooters for Kids
Kids love scooters. They are fun, compact and a great way to zoom around neighborhood, or even commute to school. From the old-school kick scooter to the exciting electric one, scooter has found itself on Christmas gift lists or birthday wish lists across the world. But with so many options available, getting the best electric scooter for your little one is not simple. What’s best for the 11-year-old boy next door is definitely not the option for your 5-year-old daughter. We’ll review the best motorized scooters for toddlers and kids, with a little twist at the end.
The world of electric scooters has changed and even pre-teens are over tame ride-share scooters that can’t break 10 mph. Now it’s all about stronger, faster scooters that actually have some respectable range on them (30 miles and above), like the Glion Dolly, Xiaomi M365 and the Mosquito
The Future of Urban Transport
We are on verge of revolution when it comes to personal transport. The big cities are “stuffed” with people, the air is getting stuffy, and unless we want to spend our lives stuck in traffic, we have to find another way of transportation. The automotive manufactures are turning to finding alternative sources of energy, producing more efficient, lighter and less expensive batteries, and even though the industry is progressing rapidly, we are still far from electric cars being ubiquitously available. Till that happens we still have our bikes, car sharing and public transport. But what people really want is a way to move themselves from one destination to another and keep the comfort, freedom and flexibility that owning a car offers.
The electric scooters are the perfect answer to the trend of miniaturization, electrification, and personalization of urban transport. In big cities in Asia, for example, where the streets are overcrowded and there is almost no underground public transport, scooters dominate road traffic. Cars are just too big and cost too much, but offer little benefits. People that live in urban areas aren’t that keen on owning a car, they are in a search for a way of transport that’s convenient, cost effective and clean.
Electrify your daily commute
If you live within a few miles of your workplace, and it’s just a little too far to walk, the electric bike or scooter is the perfect solution for you. By getting an e-scooter, you are taking a car of the road, you are reducing your carbon footprint, and not only helping your city, but also getting a chance at getting to know it a little bit better. With the top speed about 20mph, and range between 15 miles and 25 miles the electric scooter can replace car, bus or train ride on all those short distance commutes.
Electric scooters are simple to ride, and the learning curve is relatively easy, even for someone who has never ridden a two-wheeler before. No insurance, registration or license plates are required for most models, though it’s best to check regulations at your local DMV department. Wearing safety equipment like helmet is not only strongly recommended, but also required by law.
