I took my car down for its regular Warrant of Fitness check this morning. A couple of hours later I had the verdict: it has structural rust and would cost more to fix than the vehicle’s worth. My car is officially dead.
In light of that bad news I’ve been browsing around for information about electric scooters. I’m more of a motorcycle person myself, but my partner prefers scooters, and we may share a vehicle if we buy something. We live at the top of a steep hill — an important consideration.
The following list reflects what I found.
The 2000W model in the EM09 style, the same style as the existing 1000W & 1500W. These scooters are recommended for the more hilly locations where the lower powered scooters may struggle. They have a capacity of 150kg. These scooters have massive 38Ah batteries. They are selling at $3400.00 plus ORC.
