Commuting with the Ego Electric Street Scoota

September 11, 2008

After all my tests to see the distance and speed of my electric scooter, I’m happy to give it a full go and launch it into the commuting world.

Hopefully I’ll have time this weekend to check out my route up into London and see how I get on. The distance is 29.2 Miles and I have definately got 37 Miles out of it, so should be all good. The acceleration time was slightly lacking towards it final few miles but I shouldn’t have to get into that resevoir of power 😀

My main concern will be the other pedestrian commuters who will be unable to hear me coming as I’m so damn quiet (i’ll have to make my own hairdryer noises to make them aware!)

It’ll certainly be an experience – however it’ll also bring a smile to my face as i’ll save £22 a day in train fares!!! – quite a difference to the 8p to charge (especially as my work will be paying the other 8p hehe)

These are going back on sale again in late September and I would recommend to anyone who wants a cheap little run around to take the plunge and get themselves one. You can’t argue with the stats and it really is great fun.

Wish me luck and hopefully we’ll start to see a few more out on the road.
