Cities across the world are buzzing with electric scooters. In some cities, you can rent them by the hour. In others, most of them are privately owned and easy to spot in the suburbs. Either way, urban mobility is changing. It’s getting quicker and cleaner, and it’s going electric. The electric car comes later, but the electric scooter is already here. 

Practical, convenient, portable, eco-friendly, reliable, economical and relatively affordable, electric scooters are so popular right now. Here’s why. 

1. Electric scooters are economical to run

Not quite as much as a traditional bike, of course, but owning an electric scooter has much the same advantages in a city as a pedal-assist bike. The cost of fuel – in the form of electricity – is so much cheaper than petrol, of course (they costs less than 30p per day, in fact), but there are other savings to be made. Congestion charges? Nope. Parking fees? Rarely. You can often carry an electric scooter with you, instead of parking, and it may be that you can simply put your electric scooter under your desk at work and in your hallway at home.
