Much has been said about urban mobility, sustainability, light vehicles, clean energy, among other topics. The spraying of these concepts brought countless business possibilities, today we are going to show advantages and disadvantages of buying or renting an electric scooter.
In a broad way, electric scooters bring benefits to the user, from escaping heavy traffic and consequently reducing time per km traveled, ease of parking, fuel economy, sustainability and lots of fun. But these are advantages compared to other types of vehicles, being the same advantages in buying or renting.
But why rent an electric scooter instead of buying a durable one?
There is a concept, which has been spreading in the market for some time, which refers to the sharing economy. The idea is based on the assumption that with sharing there is a reduction in the impact of industry and mass production. However, there is a parallel that should be observed in this concept with regard to the maintenance of this rental equipment, which needs to be more recurring. Equipment depreciation impacts not only the increased production of spare parts, but also the price of the service provided.
Another relevant point is whether or not equipment is available to meet the need. That is, searching for the location of a nearest vehicle, going to the location and running the risk of not finding it can lead to frustration.
The most important thing when choosing between one of the options is to clearly have the function you want to use the equipment for. If the proposal is to play and have fun, renting can be a smart solution. However, if the interest is mobility, it is worth evaluating with more caution the possibility of investing in the purchase. Distance, accessibility on the route, speed and autonomy of the scooter are questions that must be answered when making decisions.
An electric scooter, for the most part, has a maximum speed of 20 km/h and autonomy of 25 km when using the battery. Currently, most scooter rental companies charge a fee for activating the vehicle and an amount per minute used, requiring the user to have an application installed, internet available and a credit card to use it. The purchase of a scooter can vary from R$1mil to R$4mil in traditional models, and up to R$12mil in models with seats.
Aware of this information, it is possible to make a quick calculation and define the best option for your pocket and well-being. But it is worth mentioning, numerous benefits to health and the environment make electric vehicles the best choice!
