In today’s world, the majority of people prefer Two-Wheelers to reach their destination. It is one of the popular means of transport. On one side Two-Wheelers help in cutting traveling time and expenses but on the other side, they cause a lot of pollution, that the reason researchers introduce electric scooters in place of fuel-based scooters.
It is designed with cutting-edge technology and a sharp line that gives comfort and convenience to your ride. There are so many factors which make electric scooter best in today’s era.
Here are the Top 7 factors that unleash the power of electric scooters:
1. Technical Specification
The electric scooter is designed and manufactured with batteries. They are eco-friendly. Widespread and extensive charging infrastructure is required.
In Electric Scooter we can use charging instead of fueling. Electric scooter charging is convenient and easier than fuel-based electric vehicles.
Electric scooters are available in Two kinds of batteries-
Li-Ion Battery and Lead Acid Battery.
Lithium-ion batteries are used for growing in popularity for military and aerospace applications.
Lead-acid batteries have the ability to supply high surge currents means that the cells have a relatively large power to weight ratio.
2. Safety and comfort
If you are driving on rough roads or in bad weather conditions, electric scooters are strong enough to ride. They are also well guarded against the entry of water.
Electric scooters are the new age scooters that make every ride a breezy one. They normally take 8 hours to recharge. They need very little maintenance. They are quiet as compared to fuel-based vehicles. In Indian cities and towns, people are using these scooters because they are reliable and also safe in rough streets.
3. License and registration requirements
Many people have a question in their minds about license requirements and registration. This is the important factor which influences customer towards electric vehicles
Is LICENCE compulsory for electric vehicles?
- Licensing and registration is required for those electric scooters for which speed is higher than 25 kmph. in ibmotors Electric scooters currently, we have two models Praise pro and Ridge + in this category.
- An electric scooter for which speed is less than 25 Kmph is exempted from licensing and registration.
- Exemption from licensing and registration is an important and encouraging thing promote electric scooters below the age of 18 years can run these. Students can use these to speed up their ride in this connected world.
4. Affordable and Cost-saving:
Electric vehicles are very cheap. So common people can afford to purchase it. It is easy to start.
An electric scooter will offer the same mileage as a petrol scooter at 15% of the cost of one liter of fuel, making it very pocket-friendly over the long term. Electric scooters are a good option for short daily use.
Li-ion battery is used in an electric scooter which is more efficient and has superior performance. Electric scooters are slightly more expensive than fuel-based two-wheelers. But the long-term cost of maintaining and riding a conventional scooter is higher than an electric scooter.
We can save costs on expenses like fuel costs, maintenance, and replacement of parts and services.
5. Range and Speed
The range of an electric scooter determines how much distance it can cover on one full charge and speed is also a secret power of electric scooters. Electric scooters with low speed are good to ride in cities especially streets and heavy traffic roads.
There are manufacturers that are offering products with a decent riding range.
The Okinawa Praise currently sits at the top in the long-range electric scooters in India. Powering the e-scooter is a 45 Ah VRLA battery that delivers a peak power output of 2,500 watts along with a claimed 170 km to 200 km riding range per single full charge.
Okinawa Praise scooter can touch a top speed of 75 kmph. The time required to charge the battery completely from zero percent is 6 to 7 hours.

6. Zero-emission and environment
Fuel-based scooters were found to emit a high concentration of pollution. Electric scooters are powered by a rechargeable battery.
e-scooter offers efficiency gains and, as they have zero local tailpipe emissions and are virtually silent. It also reduces air and noise pollution.
e-scooters can be referred to as zero-emission vehicles, they do in fact emit pollution from power plants. They emit lead from battery manufacturing and recycling.
E-scooters have the potential both to improve local air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions derived from the transport sector. In fact, they can be very cost-effective at both.
7. Government initiatives for promoting EV:
The Indian government is pushing the sale of an electric vehicle because it is environmentally friendly.
The FAME India (Faster Adoption and Manufacture of (Hybrid and) Electric Vehicles) Scheme is an incentive scheme for the promotion of electric and hybrid vehicles in the country. The ultimate objective of the scheme is to promote electric mobility and the scheme gives financial incentives for enhancing electric vehicle production and creation of electric transportation infrastructure.
In January 2013, the Indian government announced a plan to provide subsidies of Rs. 50000 on electric vehicles.
FAME was launched by the Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises in 2015. The Scheme operates in two phases: 1. Phase I: started in 2015 and was completed on March 31st, 2019.
2. Phase II: started from April 1st, 2019, will be completed by March 31st, 2022.
