What is an Electric Scooter?
Electric scooters are exactly what their name suggests. They take the original style of a two-wheel scooter that we all know and love but are accompanied by an electric motor for added power and assistance. They are rechargeable and offer a range of approximately 20-150 km distance per charge with a maximum speed of 25 km per hour in public and up to 100 per hour on private property only.
The greatest thing about the electric scooter is its convenience for commuters. Whether people buy or rent them, electric scooters have fundamentally changed the way people get to and from work.
Types of Electric Scooters
Electric Kick Scooter
The electric kick scooter is a two-wheeled scooter that requires riders to power it by pushing one foot off the ground. They are lighter, more compact, convenient to ride in high traffic areas and crowded environments. Kick scooters come with speed modes for convenience and are portable as well, great for those who commute and utilise public transport.
The three wheeled scooters are a great option for those who prefer guaranteed balance and who don’t require a scooter for general commuting purposes. Because of their broader build, these scooters aren’t the best in environments where there are a lot of people doing a lot of walking. If you’re holidaying along the coast, or in an area where there are spacious pathways and parks, this is where you can really get some great use out of the three wheeled scooters.
Foldable Electric Scooter
Portability is extremely important for those who are avid commuters, and nothing spells portable like the electric scooter that can fold and be carried or stored just about anywhere. For those who usually take public transport and then walk to work each day, consider a foldable scooter. Save yourself from the sun and the sweat by unfolding your electric scooter and buzzing towards the office in a matter of minutes.
