The 4 Best E-scooter Brands Available in Australia
If you live around the big cities in Australia, you probably see a lot of rental e-scooters roaming around every single day. Electric scooters have gained popularity in recent years because of the various advantages that they offer. First and foremost, e-scooters are an eco-friendly alternative to gasoline-powered vehicles. They produce zero emissions and can greatly reduce your carbon footprint in the long run. E-scooters also allow you to beat traffic and speed up your travel from the train station to the office or your home.
They’re convenient, environmentally safe and are a lot of fun to ride.
If you don’t like renting e-scooters, you can also invest in a personal electric vehicle (PEV) for yourself.
In this blog, we’re going to look at four of the best e-scooter brands available in Australia.
Bolzzen is an e-scooter brand that focuses on manufacturing Australian-specific PEVs. Their scooters are adherent to local legal restrictions and are suitable for extreme Australian weather and terrains. All e-scooters from Bolzzen also feature a premium brushless motor. Though these brushless motors cost more upfront, they are much more economical in the long run compared to their brushed counterparts. They have a higher torque to weight ratio, improved reliability, a longer lifespan, and reduced noise. To make them easier to carry, Bolzzen has incorporated an ‘Easy Fold System’ in their PEVs. They also use lightweight materials so that the scooters can be easily taken into public transport.
Additionally, Bolzzen stocks e-scooters at all price ranges. From affordable e-scooters for kids to high-end personal electric vehicles for connoisseurs, they’ve got something for everybody.
