We know life is back to normal, almost, and you probably landed here to research on the next bike you can own. But before we showcase our list of top electric scooters, we think it is crucial to establish the argument on why we really need to ditch the traditional vehicles and consciously choose eco-friendly transport alternatives.

Right before India went under lockdown in 2020, its air quality was a national debate for all the wrong reasons. The bad air quality was held as the primary culprit behind rising numbers of breathing issues and other health problems. But if we think deeply, can we really pin the air quality as the reason for all the problems? No! COVID-19 that forced humans to stay within their homes gave us a clear answer to this question. With restricted road movement, the environment began to heal itself. People across the country took to social media to share their “magical moments” of spotting farsighted natural beauties. For instance, residents in Jalahandar could spot the Himalayan range from the roofs of their homes that were more than 100 miles away.

As we got the opportunity to sit back and re-look our lives and witnessed the environment replenish itself, we knew it’s time to alter many things. And it can all begin with making the right choices. So, as you are enthusiastic about owning a new shiny scooter, we recommend considering the following options that would match your expectations without harming nature.

It is one of the top-rated electric scooters from the TVS brand. It hits high on the style note and is popular for its amazing performance. The scooter registers its top speed at 78 km/hour and is quite comfortable to balance. It demands 5 hours of charging to be fully charged and auto cut-off when the charging is complete. Therefore, there is no chance of overcharging or overheating. You can also carry the charging cable with ease in special storage created within the scooter.

We do hope you begin your next ride by making the right choice!
