Approaches to urban transportation differ around the globe. If we don’t take into account public transport, it can be clearly seen that while people in the United States and in North America tend to choose cars and SUVs as their main daily commuters (hence the need to cover longer distances), many people in Europe, India and Asian countries choose smaller vehicles to get around: motorcycles, scooters and bicycles are used not only for last mile travel but also as main commuters. These types of vehicles tend to have better fuel efficiency or produce no emissions at all, if they are equipped with all electric motors.
Since many Asian people use scooters and bicycles for travel, it’s no wonder that most of latest all-electric scooter models come from startups and manufactures located in this region.
Electric smart scooters have already become irreplaceable companions for riders in some parts of the world and this trend is very likely to be expanding in 2020.
After all, spending a quarter of a dollar to recharge the scoot daily, while enjoying fast hassle-free commute, is a pretty great deal. So here we wanted to explore the newest models that are arriving to reinvigorate the city landscapes to tell you which ones are worth buying by factoring in the major technical characteristics, battery information and estimated real-world all-electric riding ranges.
