Electric scooter gets the nod from LTA

scooter

The Straits Times today reported that LTA has given approval to the roadwothiness of Zeco Scooters Pte Ltd‘s import of e-max scooters. However other governing bodies have yet to give approval of the german-built electric scooter.

Said to be the best clean scooter on the market, Zeco has said that energy efficiency means the scooter operates at 70 cents for every 100km/h, ten times cheaper one run on petrol. There is of course, the expense of charging the vehicle. Depending on the model, each charge can range between three and eight hours.

Hopefully, it gets final approval, and all petrol/diesel run scooter drivers will opt for this instead, even though it costs twice as much, but the payout is priceless – a cleaner environment, better health for all, and savings to the hip pocket.

There is of course, the option of biodiesel for diesel-run scooters, but I’m not too sure about the legality of that on our Singapore streets.
