Electric scooters have now become a symbol of the modern urban transport of New Zealand. They’re a common thing in big cities such as New York, Berlin, and San Francisco. This popular trend seems to move in only one direction i.e. upwards. While we think this recent increase in popularity of e-scooters is excellent, we can’t deny that there are many people who remain unconvinced as of now. Below are some of the best reasons to buy an electric scooter in New Zealand today.
It is completely Eco-friendly
Electric scooters are leading the race of eco-friendly vehicles in the world. They only use a small amount of electricity and never emit any emissions at all, which is better for the air quality in our big cities of New Zealand and for the lungs of us and our neighbours. As a very reliable, affordable, and eco-friendly way of travelling, it is perhaps one of the best choices you can make by buying an electric scooter.
Portability at its best
Many people would love to use assisted forms of transport but find them too easily or too technical. Motorbikes are simply great, but you will need a valid license and insurance to ride one. Bicycles are also excellent, but you’ll often need to leave it tightly chained up outside and at risk of being simply stolen, and they’re way too large to be considered very portable. On the other hand, electric scooters are very lightweight and can be folded up, allowing for easy storage and portability. You can also be on your way with no risk of being stolen or anything, as it has various encryption techniques.
You are reducing noise pollution
Travelling around a busy city of New Zealand and silence never go together. Apparently, any method of travelling around comes with a significant amount of noise pollution – cars, motorbikes, buses, trains – they’re all obnoxiously loud. Enter the electric scooter which has a whisper-quiet mode of transport and in fact, that’s the fastest and quietest way to get from one location to another.
Safety not compromised at all.
Every mode of transport comes with an exposure of risk, such as an accident. Furthermore, when you are travelling any faster than walking pace, your risk of having a fatal accident increases. This even comprises something as simple as tripping or bumping into someone whilst you are jogging in the park. Compared with all other personal modes of transport, such as cycling, roller skating, or using scary hoverboards, e-scooters are potentially the safest option. As easy as it gets, you can simply step off if you see an imminent collision about to be occurring. This is something you can’t do with motorbikes or roller skates, and you have absolute immediate access to the brakes, which hoverboards lack entirely. Electric scooters are quick enough to be useful and what a joy to ride, but also they give you enough control that you feel safe and secure while riding them.
