Can you get a passenger on your Ego Electric Street Scoota?

August 27, 2008

Does a Bear do what a Bear’s gotta do in Woodland?!!! – Hell yeah!

I have trialled my Ego Scooter with a passenger and it wasn’t suffering too much at all – I don’t think that you would want to travel the full 40 miles like it, however it certainly didn’t cut my top speed and the nippyness (is that a word? .. it is now!)

This Scooter is simply ideal if you live in a city and you work / wish to travel locally! Although the manual states that I should keep it charging at all times to maintain battery life .. . I’m a bloke and so therefore am completely disregarding this and using the ON / OFF switch under the seat. Firebox themselves have kindly mentioned that they will be looking to stock replacement batteries in the future for as little as £75 (that’s cheaper than some people’s full tank of petrol! haha) – This means that I don’t have to constantly make sure that my scoota is wired up to a plug and can leave it ready for action at any point.

It’s so great being in the knowledge that if you need to nip out for a pint of milk, that it will cost more for the milk than the trip down there!

I will be doing more distance tests in due course and am taking a punt tomorrow night that it will get me somewhere and back without me giving it a top up from the weekend …. only one way to find out hehe. (If you see someone pushing a blue Scoota along the road… say hi :D)

Get yourself on the green scoota-wagon and pre-order before they sell out again! Clear your cookies and Pre-order at Firebox 😀
