The electric scooters naturally appeal to the users who ride on two-wheelers, all thanks to their maneuverability, power and ease of maintenance. These features allow everyone to choose an electric scooter over other vehicles.

Why using an e-scooter in the city is the right choice for many?

Economical: Unlike its thermal counterparts, all the e-scooters, in general, tend to exhibit both ecological and economic benefits. These models function due to the electricity stored in their accumulator. Hence, there’s no consumption of fuel. As the cost of electricity is lower than that of fuel, plenty of money is saved in the long run.

Ecological: Naturally, as the e-scooter doesn’t require any oil/fuel consumption; hence it doesn’t emit any harmful pollutant or gas that is not good for the environment.

Better User Comfort: One of the best things about owning an electric scooter is that it does not require additional maintenance like lubricating the vehicle regularly with oil for better performance. Hence, it is easier for the rider to maintain the electric scooter and carry it around the city without worry.

Balance & Movement: Due to the sedentary lifestyle, and desk jobs, people tend to sit more and move less. Hence, that adversely affects the health and fitness level of the individuals. Although an e-scooter is not a replacement for a workout, using it regularly improves your balance and increases the level of being active daily. It may also encourage you to walk a little more and run a bit more. (Just in case, if you are running late and you are stuck in traffic, you can pick up your e-scooter and walk across the pavement to avoid getting late.)

What are the basic criteria for choosing an electric scooter?

The choice of an electric scooter model varies according to different criteria as per the user requirements. Mainly the choice depends on its type of use, i.e. going to the office, going for shopping etc. Some of the other driving factors that can help you choose the right electric scooter can be:

  • The Weight of the Electric Scooter
  • The Battery Power of the E-Scooter
  • The Performance of the E-Scooter
  • The Overall Weight of the User
  • The Style of Driving
  • Maintenance
Currently, most of the models come with a Lithium battery. These batteries are substantially lighter, more durable and offer a better backup.

WalkSmart recommends that you check your local state laws and regulations in relation to using electric scooters in public locations, roads and footpaths. Laws vary state by state and therefore may limit use to private locations only. Each local body is reviewing public electric scooter use, so we expect it to be regulated, but legal in all states within the short term. Feel free to contact WalkSmart if you have any further queries.
