Since mid-2019, the e-scooter has been officially approved for road traffic in Germany. In other countries this has been done even earlier. It is practical, handy and nippy, which is why the electric scooter is becoming increasingly popular. This manoeuvrable, motorised scooter is suitable for all age groups. The e-scooter can be used on the pavement or on private property, but thanks to the general operating permit, it can also be used on the road.
E-scooters: arguments for a modern means of transport
Advantages of an e-scooter
An e-scooter offers considerable advantages for many purposes and is an important component of the often-cited mobility revolution. We have summarised some strong arguments in favour of an e-scooter:
- small and handy, often even foldable
- easy to take on buses, trains, taxis and public transport
- Can be ridden from the age of 14
- manoeuvrable and quick to get around
- Large selection of high-quality e-scooter models
- no parking worries
- inclines and hills don't leave you sweaty when you get there
- ecological alternative to the car
- no risk of contagion on an e-scooter (compared to public transport)
- no noise pollution
- low maintenance and very low running costs / insurance approx. 30 €/year
- Purchase of your own e-scooter quickly pays for itself compared to renting one.
Promotion of electric vehicles by municipalities or electricity providers
Some municipalities and many regional electricity providers promote the purchase of an electric vehicle, sometimes with considerable amounts. The e-treadroller is classified as a micro electric vehicle (eKVF). The type and scope of the subsidy changes again and again and varies from city to city and from federal state to federal state. The website https://www.co2online.de/foerdermittel/foerderung-elektromobilitaet provides a good overview what is going on in Germany. It can also be a good idea to contact your own town hall or local energy supplier. Demand creates supply.
