Frequently asked questions
The actual cost of travelling 100 km on an electric scooter is around 2 zł (sic!) – 0,5 EUR. For comparison: using a scooter with a 49 ccm capacity internal combustion engine, You can ride for 100 km paying around 16 zł. (less than 4 EUR).
A bicycle is ever cheaper – everything depends on how much You use the support.
The range of an electric scooter
The range of an electric scooter is 70-150 km.
Clients often ask: isn’t it too little?
Let’s do a simple calculation, using as an example the biggest city in Poland, Warsaw.
We assume (exaggerating a little) that You live in Bielany, and work in Ursynow – this is an approximate 20 km one-side trip, so driving to and from work is around 40 km. You are left with over 20 km for “deviating” from your work-home path – for shopping, social meetings, the movies or a stop in a coffee shop during the day. And it’s sufficient for all of them!
You simply recharge the battery in the evening.
Is charging a burdensome task?
Users often worry about problems with charging electric vehicles.
There is nothing simpler: You just have to plug the battery into an electric socket and that’s all. Ordinary socket, ordinary wire. Simple, isn’t it?
Even when the battery dies during the day, You can charge it using every socket without problems, because there is no need to use any special adapters for it.
The comfort of riding
Electric scooters have a lower centre of gravity, thus are less prone to toppling and easier to ride, they are silent and clean. Moreover, many users like the silent work of an electric engine. Riding in quiet is a real pleasure!
Riding is identical as in the case of traditional bicycles. Electric bicycles are indeed a little bit heavier than their traditional counterparts (we obviously add the weight of an engine and a battery), but thanks to the positioning of the baterry and the engine in the hub ( in wheel’s axis), the additional weight is impossible to notice when riding!
Electric energy is the so-called “clean energy”. Scooters, bicycles nad other electric vehicles don’t emmit fumes at all – they don’t pollute the air, and that’s especially important in cities, where You have to compete for the clean air.
Oparation and service
Can I handle the servicing of such scooter? What about repairs?
– these are the frequent questions of our Clients. We calm everyone that riding and operating electric scooters is as simple as in the case of scooters with internal combustion engines. TrybEco’s scooter doesn’t have a starter, an exhaust pipe, pistons, rings, it doesn’t require the change of oil, drive belts, the clutch, variator’s rolls…
When it comes to servicing – when something brakes down, you don’t have to worry anymore – we will help You repair it !
