Electric scooters are designed to make our lives better and here are some of their main advantages.
In some parts of the world more and in some parts of the world less but electric vehicles and particularly electric scooters are getting popular. You see more and more people riding electric scooters on the streets, talking about electric scooters on the internet, carrying folded electric scooters around in public transport. Is it a temporary trend or have electric scooters settled down in our reality for a long run?
Of course, it depends a lot on the culture, climate, and terrain of your city but believe it or not, electric scooters are not a temporal buzz of fashion but necessities of the nearest future. Why?
The life dictates its rules and behind billions of different products and services currently available, the markets are looking for only 3 main things whatever product or service they buy: something that saves their time and efforts, something that brings them freedom or joy, something that makes them feel good about themselves. And guess what? This revolutionary transport hits all 3 targets. Electric scooters are designed to make our lives better and easier and here are some of their main advantages.
1. No Emissions
Electric scooters are absolutely eco-friendly and emission-free. Sustainability has become one of the main priorities of most European governments and there are a lot of initiatives and regulations on regional, national and local levels targeted on cutting emissions and encouraging citizens to use sustainable means of transport. This means that using an electric scooter will not only free your conscious and make you feel good about yourself contributing to a better future of the planet but can also save you some money and extra headache by complying with the environmental regulations. This is indeed one of the main advantages of electric scooters in comparison to motorcycles and cars.
2. No Traffic Jams & Timetables
If you get to commute in a rush hour, there is at least one hour every day of you hating your life. Whether you are stuck in a traffic jam in your car, crowded bus or not stuck but squeezed in the smelly crowd in the metro – it is all the same horrible experience that you just have to get done with. And if you use bus or metro, you also depend a lot on their timetable, so every time you just hope there are no delays and you don’t miss your bus to arrive at work on time. You are a prisoner of your daily commute. But you can solve all these problems by just getting an electric scooter. As easy as that. An electric scooter will set you free. This is another advantage of electric scooters over cars and public transport.
3. No Effort, No Sweat
But what about the good old bike you will ask. A bike has all the advantages mentioned above. Why do I need an e-scooter? A bicycle will free you of timetables, traffic jams and emissions indeed but you will still need to pedal those pedals and in summer it can get very tiring! If you don’t want to sweat every day on your way to work, get an electric scooter and arrive at work fresh and energized.
4. No Robbery Risk
The level of safety differs in various cities but no matter where you live, there is always some risk of your bike being stolen or damaged when parked outside. In Spain this problem is especially big, the bicycles get stolen every day and no lock system is effective enough to prevent it. If they did not manage to take the entire bike, they will take at least a wheel or two. Electric scooter in comparison to a bicycle is foldable and very compact which means, you do not need to risk it and leave it outside, you just fold it and bring it with you to your office, home, bar or any other place.
5. No Sports Apparel Required
Another advantage of electric scooters in comparison to bicycles is that they are super easy to ride and do not require any special skill or apparel. Ladies can easily scoot around in high hills and skirts, men should be not worried about wrinkling their suits. Electric scooters are absently business apparel compatible.
Needless to say, in comparison to bicycles electric scooter can go very fast and get you where you need within minutes regardless of terrain and physical shape of the rider. If you have an electric scooter, you do not have to be strong to move fast. The maximum speed varies depending on the model of the electric scooter you pick. There are some less powerful models for kids or safe riders with the maximum speed of around 20-25 km/h but there are also very powerful and fast models with the maximum speed of around 30km/h.
7. Foldable, Light & Easily Portable
As we have already mentioned before, most electric scooters are foldable and compact. This allows you to easily bring it with you to your office, apartment, restaurant and store it in a limited space. The majority of the electric scooters can also fit in your car trunk or under a standard train/bus/metro seat. This is a very strong advantage of electric scooters in comparison to bicycles and electric bicycles.
8. Safe & Reliable
There are other portable innovative electric vehicles out there these days but so far electric scooters are the safest. A wide standing board, two relatively big wheels, a proper steer wheel with two brake handles ensure a very stable ride fully controlled by the rider.
9. Cool & Fun
Electric scooters are very practical and economic. They are fast and easy to charge at home and they consume very little electricity. As we have already seen, they have many advantages in comparison to other means of transport. A part of making your life easier and giving you more freedom, they also just bring you joy. Electric scooters are just so cool you can’t resist! Fast and smooth ride with literally zero effort. Come on! We can promise you will want to ride it even if you are not going anywhere, just to enjoy the ride itself. And as we all know, “happiness is a journey, not a destination.”
Yes, electric scooters are a big trend right now and it seems like they are not going away any time soon. Instead, electric scooters are becoming a necessity of modern urban life and this should not surprise us: they are sustainable, economic and very easy to ride. Electric scooters make our everyday life much easier, bring joy and freedom.
