3 things to know before buying an electric scooter
Electric scooters are quickly becoming the go-to option in the country. Brands like Ola & Ather are changing the game with performance and features. So you must be wondering if you should buy an electric scooter and if so what all things you should know beforehand. Fret not, we have got you covered. In today’s article, let’s talk about things you should know before buying an electric scooter.
You must buy an electric scooter considering the range for your use cause. For e.g- If you travel 100kms a day, you should buy a scooter with a claimed range of 100km. There is a lot of difference between the real-world range and claimed range. So you should get a scooter with at least 50km more range than your use cause. Also, contact owners to figure out the real-world range of the scooter.
EVs come with the hassle of charging. So with a home charger, you need a decent amount of space to install it in the first place. For people who do not have a fixed parking spot, this can be a hassle. Such types of users can look for a charger nearby, or a scooter with a detachable battery. Removable batteries do have their pros but can be cumbersome to move around.
Buying an electric scooter – After-sales service
Generally, electric scooters don’t need much maintenance compared to petrol scooters. Still, it is advisable to have an idea of how much this cost will be before you spend your money. Manufacturers like Ola and Ather provide home servicing, while other manufacturers also provide similar services. So it is better that you do a thorough inquiry about the service network and the services provided before buying an electric scooter.
