With the increase in the level of air pollution, people are getting drawn more towards eco-friendly vehicle substitutes. One such big change is electric scooters because they are sustainable, battery operated and, most importantly, pollution-free.
Model name: Sky II (CE with pedals)
The Sky II is operated with LG removable lithium types of batteries with a capacity of 48Volt / 20AH. All electric scooters are charged by plugging into ordinary wall outlets. This particular vehicle’s charger capacity is 48Volt 2.5Amp and takes 8 hours to fully charge. It is generally very low maintenance compared to a conventional motorcycle. The motor power of the scooter is 500 Watts and can travel up to 38kmh. It has two brakes –a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. The disc brake offers efficient stopping power along with low maintenance and affordable spares and it is located externally, meaning it cools down very fast. For drum brakes, most of the components are held by spring tension and if any replacement brakes are required, it will be very affordable.
Approximately 2,800km and three months of commuting on an electric scooter will cost you less than $30 worth of electricity. In case you are wondering where to recharge if you are on road, there are several public charging outlets as well. The maximum speed of this scooter is 38km/hr with a driving range of 60km. It weighs around 75kgs. Upgrading options are also available such as LED headlights, alarm settings, rear disc brake, and a keyless start as per your needs.
Needless to say, electric scooters are cheaper than cars, thus making them an affordable mode of transport for many people. Since these scooters have limited speed, they need to be registered with DVLA. Not only that, they are eco-friendly, as they prevent noise and air pollution. In busy cities, with time being the biggest problem, these vehicles will quickly move through narrow lanes and traffic jams.
