Some people can be put off by the price-tag on an electric scooter - but should they really be? 

Our team are convinced that their electric rides are actually saving them loads of money every month - so we've decided put it to the test and calculate exactly how long it takes the average person to scoot their way back into the green.

Our Calculation

  • The average 18 - 55 year old UK citizen takes approximately 40 short journey per month. The average cost of a small journey (5km or less) on either public transport or by car is £1.75. Therefore on average people spend £70/month on travel.
  • The average cost of an electric scooter at £375 
  • If all short journeys were now taken by electric scooter, it would take 5 and a half months to have made back the cost of your electric scooter. If even half were replaced the initial cost would be recouped in within the first year!

So...

(Scooter Cost - £375) / (Monthly Saving - £70)5.4 months

So there we have it - Your electric scooter will have paid for itself in the first 5-6 months of ownership!
From there on it's only an asset for you to enjoy in your every day life.

We hope this calculation has helped - try not to be too smug now :)
