Why ride an E-Bike/Scooter?
Electric bike [E-Bike] and electric scooter prove to be the best-selling vehicles for personal,
economic and environmental benefits, not only in Hawaii, but also in all other states.
Riding an E-Bike/E-Scooter is like riding a general bike but without much sweat. In fact,
riding a pedal bike daily to work is not always pleasant in a very warm climate such as in
Hawaii. With an E-Bike, one has no longer worried about a long way or an uphill, while still
enjoys a nice sports activity and always be able to find a parking place. The E-bike/scooter
offers much more comforts than pedaling a traditional bicycle.
The economic benefits of E-Bikes/Scooters are obvious, in comparing with buying hybrid
cars or even noisy gas mopeds. E-Bikes are considerably low cost. Except its low price,
one can easily save 75% of his/her gas spending after having an E-Bike. Just remember, E-
Bike / E-Scooter only need minimal maintenance. Thus, riding an E-Bike or E-Scooter can
turn your daily commute to a Money-Saving experience.
Let us do a simple calculation (based on $3.30/Gal in 2009), cars cost about $0.30-0.50
per mile in fuel in town. Giving that you drive 5000 miles per year, your gas spending is
about $1500 at least in a year. Having an E-Bike or E-Scooter basically saves 75% of your
gas spending (~ $1,100 to $2,600) in the first year, enough to cover your investment. For
some families having SUV, truck and other gas suckers, their saving will be much greater.
Particularly, if one only need short commute within 10-30 miles per day, just the saving on
parking would be well over $1000 per year. One of another big spending on your car is
maintenance. Now, your E-Bike or an E-Scooter can help cut that as well. So anyone
investing in his/her E-Bike & E-Scooter will find tremendous savings.
The environmental benefit is most important because E-Bikes/Scooters have no emissions
at all, regardless of reduced resource consumption (less material, fuel, and infrastructure).
Reducing CO2 emissions is most urgent because of global warming. The average car
emits one pound of CO2 for every mile driven. If one rides an E-Bike or E-Scooter daily,
your 75% saving in gas spending literally is your contribution to the reduction of green
house gas emission (that equals to 3750 pounds of CO2 per year). Think about, my
fellows, you are not only saving $$$ for yourself, but also saving the world - no joking - on
a daily basis.
Electric bikes/Scooters are easy to use; push and go. They save time in two ways: 1) For
errands up to 30-50 miles and on some congested commutes, E-Bikes/Scooters are
quicker than the car; 2) Their low cost means you work fewer hours supporting them.
The E-Bikes/Scooters are equipped with all safety devices for riding during daytime and
night. With an E-Bike/Scooter, riding around cars is safe.
Your health and fitness will improve. Believe or not, E-Biking/Cruise is sports, good for
your fitness and health. If having foot problems, the benefit will be more obvious. Because
of the motor in the bike/scooter, you will actually be riding that bike/scooter more often. In
fact, you will find more fun and enjoyment of your life daily! Traffic snarls aren't frustrating
and stressful to you, and you are no longer "beating the system".
How Much We Spend to Live with A Car ?
To most of us, automobiles represent a fast way to get where we're going. But auto
expenses (including both ownership and operating cost) are costly. When all included, they
make the true costs of driving a car much higher than we realize. Your and my "True
Costs" worksheet below
License & Registration
Gas & Oil : ($1500 - $3000)
Toils & Parking: ($800-$2000)
Maintenance tuneups, repairs, tires ($500-$3000)
Other car wash, accessories, etc.
Subtotal Operation = over $2800 to $8000
+ Subtotal Ownership
Total Costs = (read more Cut Car Repair Costs!)
have convinced us how much we're spending on our car each year. Those are direct costs.
Indirectly, through many types of taxes, we also pay for the land, roads, "freeways”,
bridges, and tunnels. Through the government, we also pay cleaning, landscaping,
irrigation, signs, signals, reflectors, and police and emergency services. According to the
American Automobile Association, a new car costs over $6,000 a year to operate.
In summary, electric bikes/scooters, for errands and short commutes, offer an alternative to
the high costs of driving. Obviously, maintenance & energy costs are minimal. So every
mile you ride an e-bike/scooter, instead of driving, saves you money. Meanwhile, you are
contributing to protect our environment.
