Who wants to travel around New Zealand -- conveniently, affordably, eco-friendly, and really fun?
Wouldn’t you want to experience the natural beauty, diverse culture, and adventurous spirit of this country? Wouldn’t you like to join in the growing trend of riding e-scooters, those electric-powered devices for leisure and enjoyment?
Answering yes to either or any of these questions, Kiwis ought to try e-scooters, and make it a part of one's life.
E-scooters are the eco-friendly choice for anyone who wants to explore New Zealand on two wheels.
Just look at the electric scooter’s many advantages over other modes of transport like cars, buses, or bikes.
Electric scooters are lightweight, compact, portable, and foldable, so you can carry and store them easily. Capable of reaching speeds of up to 25 km/h (which is what is allowable in New Zealand), and travel distances of up to 32-35 km on a single charge, these rideables are ideal for short trips -- like commuting to work or school, running errands to the pharmacy or supermarket, and/or seeing nature sights.
Another visible advantage is that e-scooters can help you, the rider save money on fuel, public transport fare, and yes, even parking fees. Not to mention, the commuter no longer needs to queue at the bus stop for the crowded bus to arrive or squeeze your way in a crammed-full parking space. E-scooters do their part in reducing traffic congestion and road accidents by being more nimble than cars.
It’s not hard to see why electric scooters have found a thriving nesting ground in New Zealand. The benefits all add up. Our Kiwi brothers are thrilled to discover a new way of getting things done -- faster, enjoyable and a thrill to be riding it, too.
