Why Electric Transport is boomingJune 5th 2019
There’s no denying that electric transport is the future!
From electric cars and trains to e-scooters and bikes, these methods are green, fast, and, most importantly, vital to create a healthier living space for us all. Fossil fuels really are dead. We need to act fast to take action to have positive change.
Luckily, electric transport is on the rise and improving the environmental horizon. Did you know there are now about 210,000 electric cars here in the UK? This is even more remarkable when considering that this number was only 3,500 in 2013!
The speed at which the electric scooter community is growing fills us with hope for the future. We know that, once legalised, they will completely transform the transport landscape as we know it, in turn reducing both congestion and pollution.
For example, did you know that the least efficient car journeys are those at a low-speed and over short distances? These journeys involve plenty of stopping and starting, such as the commute in busy city centres, which is where your electric scooter will streamline your journey. They’ll be changing transport and urban areas as we know them in favour of travel without harmful fumes.
It really is time to go electric. Paris has set itself a target to become carbon neutral by 2050 and phasing out diesel and petrol cars by 2030. It's no coincidence that Paris is also the scooter capital of the world. It’s estimated the city will be home to 40,000 by the end of 2019, so now is the perfect time to get ahead of the curve.
Back here in the UK, our government too has set ambitious goals to cut carbon emissions, as they also plan to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars. By 2040, the UK hopes to be a lot greener, which will shift the market massively with more and more people looking for green transport.
Electric transport is booming for a very good reason as it changes the world in which we live but not at the cost of our own convenience. Green, efficient and cheap, e-scooters not only make the area in which we live better, but also our lives too.
At Pure Electric, we are passionate that carbon neutral transport should be available to everyone for a greener and cleaner future!
