Transport is the largest emitting sector of our economy & it adds to around one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, whilst being a major contributor towards severe air pollution. Converting to Electric Vehicles (EVs) represents a promising path to decarbonize the transport sector, with potentially significant co-benefits for human well-being.
Why Should You Consider Buying An Electric Vehicle?
Saving the planet is as easy as riding an electric vehicle!
We’re at a critical moment when it comes to battling the climate crisis & EVs hold the way to permanent solutions of a better, cleaner & greener world for the sustainability of its populace.
When you drive an EV, there are no emissions emerging from the tailpipe. Unlike an internal combustion engine, an electric motor avoids spewing smog-forming pollutants and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. This means that your vehicle won’t be causing harmful air-pollution that people breathe in or that adds to climate change.
EVs have numerous advantages over conventional vehicles from bettering the quality of the air, to improving energy efficiency. And are thus a significant tool in worldwide efforts to reduce our carbon emissions.
Owning an electric car means never having to take the vehicle in for oil changes and tune-ups, and there are far fewer moving parts that would eventually fail and need replacing, as compared to conventional vehicles.
Now that’s about ‘why’ you should consider buying an EV. Now, the question arises, ‘which’ electric vehicle to finally go for, and what all should you consider?
Baffled By Too Many Options?
Given the increasing popularity of electric scooters, it's no wonder that there are so many different choices now available in the market. It's easy for a newbie to the electric scooter world to be overwhelmed by every one of the various options laid out before them.
Let’s explore some of the different factors you should keep in mind if you're considering purchasing an EV.
1. The Speed You Want (And The Speed You’re Allowed)
When shopping for an electric scooter, one of the first things you're going to realise is that these versatile vehicles come in a wide variety of speed options. Most electric scooters have a maximum speed somewhere between 15 and 40 kmph - that's quite a huge difference, especially if you plan on riding every day.
Moreover, speed limits in India vary by state and vehicle type. Different places have different laws regarding how fast electric scooters are allowed to go.

2. Battery Type, Range And Charging Specifications.
Electric scooters arrive in a wide variety of battery ranges. The battery range is the distance that the scooter can go with a fully charged battery (with ideal terrain & body weight). Electric scooters use almost the same batteries as laptops and other devices, which means they are rigorously tested and generally very safe.
Your EV’s battery is one of the most important components, for obvious reasons. It determines several things about your scooter, from the speed and range, all the way down to the cost per charge, and overall maintenance costs.
Ampere’s electric scooters come with a convenient & easily detachable, advanced Lithium Battery. These provide high energy densities, they don’t suffer from the ‘memory effect’, and are easy to maintain.
