The electric zap is looking to take “charge” (pun intended) of almost the entire spectrum of modern-day mobility. It is beyond doubt that the EV technology is going to dominate one particular mode of transportation in the subsequent years, that is the Two-wheelers. Battery-powered scooters have been on sale in India long before the hype for EVs got real. It’s just that electric scooters were not able to rise to fame over the supremacy of petrol scooters, until now.
As people all around the world began to realise their responsibility towards the environment more vividly, the idea of a new era of mobility makes more sense now. Two-Wheelers in Indian account for around 74% of the total vehicles on the road. Hence, a transition of two-wheelers to electric technology can contribute tremendously towards the Green India Mission (GIM).
While there are plenty of two-wheelers buyers made the switch to electric scooters as a substitute for Internal Combustion Engine(ICE) powered scooters. But, the question still remains, should you be buying an electric scooter in 2020? We compare an electric scooter with an ICE one to find out just that.
