Sprouting like mushrooms, we are seeing more and more electric vehicles like scooters, bikes, skateboards, and hover boards turning up everywhere. People need other ways to get around because let’s be honest, we all need 25 hours in our day. Some choose to park their car slightly farther than their work office and walk the rest of the way, or ride their bicycle from home to the nearest subway station.
Most of us want to be in control of our time and how long it takes us to get to our destination. Good news! We can be. Here are seven reasons to go electric.
1. Be Kind to Our Environment
You can reduce your carbon footprint just by going electric. Based on a study by EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute) and the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), they predict that by 2050 greenhouse gas emissions will experience a 45% reduction due to the electric sector. You want to make the world a better place but don't know how one person can make a difference? Think electric.
2. Avoid Traffic Stress
If you spend a substantial amount of time stuck in traffic, especially in big cities, avoid the unnecessary stress and go electric. A study conducted by the University of Montreal states that the more time you spend commuting, the more likely you are to experience symptoms such as physical and emotional exhaustion, being cynical, or even wanting to quit your job.
3. Skip the Fuel Costs
Simply, plug and charge. With electric transport, forget about adding the extra fuel cost to your monthly expenses. We all need one less thing to worry about.
4. Maintain with Ease
It’s fairly simple to maintain an electric scooter. ELE-GO's innovative design with wireless assembled components allows for a quick diagnosis to either repair or replace the affected parts. You should keep it clean, store it in a dry, cool place, and take proper care of its battery. A little preventative maintenance can go a long way.
5. Manage Your Time
If you enjoy being in control, then you will love knowing exactly how long it will take you to get to work that day. With electric transport, you will arrive to work when and how you plan to, free from traffic delays. Take control of your commute.
6. Don’t Sweat It
Walking or cycling to the nearest station or straight to your workplace can definitely work up a sweat and exhaust you before having even started your day. Electric transport can get you there, without the physical exhaustion. Simply hop on, and ride. Arrive to work feeling fresh, or go home in comfort and save your last dregs of energy.
7. Never Worry About Parking
The time spent searching for a parking spot, and the money to have it parked for 5 or more days per week, can easily be saved. Instead, place your electric vehicle on the sidewalk in its designated area. Or with a foldable electric scooter like ELE-GO, you can store it just under or by your office desk.
Be kind to yourself and to the environment, go electric.
