Is It Worth Buying an Electric Scooter?

by King Kong on August 25, 2021

As we continue to become more aware of issues concerning the environmental impact our carbon footprint has on the atmosphere and overall state of the world, we have been starting to turn to travel alternatives. In addition to cities become more crowded and commute times steadily increasing in recent times, it’s no surprise that electric scooters are becoming more and more popular.

The Benefits

  • Avoid traffic jams

The daily commute to work or school can eat into your free time especially when you have to travel during peak hours. Riding a scooter means you can avoid all of that, turning up on time every day and getting to maximise your spare time.

  • Portable

Many electric scooters incorporate features that make them easily foldable and compact so you can take them on the go.

  • Lower maintenance costs

Gone are the monthly payments that go towards maintaining a car and keeping it on the road. With an electric scooter, you will spend significantly less overall, including the initial cost.

  • Easy to park

You can say goodbye to searching all over your busy city for a parking space or paying ridiculous amounts in car parks. Electric scooters can simply be attached to bike locks, which are found absolutely everywhere in cities.

  • Lower cost of ownership

The average cost of car ownership in Australia comes to around $9,500 a year, an extortionate amount when compared to the cost of buying your own scooter. Buying an electric scooter also means avoiding paying the cost of paying for rideshare scooters that you can find on the streets of many major cities, which can accumulate over the course of a year.

Why Choose Electric Scooters Over Other Modes of Transportation?

For short journeys and commutes to and from work, electric scooters make the most economical and environmental sense. Owning an electric scooter has a host of benefits that cars and bikes simply cannot offer.

When comparing an electric scooter to a car, you will find that scooters are highly reliable and will require virtually no maintenance with proper care, unlike cars that can see you breaking the bank over a minor repair. On the other hand, electric scooters cannot do those long journeys that your car can, but who says you can’t have both? Using your car will help you save money and the environment but is still at your disposal when you need it.

While bikes are great environmentally friendly alternatives, they are not as compact or as light as electric scooters. Bikes are cumbersome and will also have you sweating on your summer morning commute, not always what you are looking for right before work. Electric scooters solve both of these problems.
