With the recent fuel crisis seeing prices at the pumps go through the roof, people have been looking at other cheaper ways to get around town. Amazon.com has reported a 6,000 percent rise in sales of electric bicycles this summer. There have also been significant rises in the sales of electric scooters too. One New York dealer noticed a 50% rise when fuel prices shot up.
Electric bikes and scooters in particular have changed significantly in recent times. New, sexier models have been launched, making use of rapid advances in technology.
Electric scooters are very cheap to run. In most places in the world electric vehicles don't require road tax. As for running costs, the average electric scooter costs pennies per mile to run.
Similarly, there have been rapid advances in battery technology. They last longer and have become more powerful. The newest electric scooters can reach speeds of 70 mph and can go for 70 miles between charges. And because they have no engine noise they are incredibly quiet.
There's also the question of congestion. The average speed of vehicles travelling through capital cities is around 10 mph. People in a car spend most of their commute waiting for the traffic to clear. Scooters and bicycles can bypass this stationery traffic.
The 'Electric Bikes Scooters & Cars' website helps people make the switch to electric vehicles and to keep them advised of the latest models and reviews. There's also the opportunity to buy electric bikes, scooters and cars in the online store. For those new to scooters, there's a book available to make the transition from four wheel to two as smooth as possible.
