Electric Motorbike / moped vs fuel cost calculator
The cost savings
Electric Bikes are a great alternative to a car or a petrol scooter for exploring the city and/or commuting to and from work. Costing just pennies to run in comparison, they are gaining popularity thanks to their cheap costs, environmental credentials and fun driving style; not to mention the cost to maintain them is extremely low too.
Making the jump from Diesel or Petrol to Electric can be daunting. With a bunch of information out there it can be hard to make a decision, so we have created this page in order to assist you in making your decision.
There are 3 key points to seeing how much money you could save by making the jump. Your cost of electric is an important one and if you can get access economy7 or something similar then you could save even more money than a fixed tariff.
The second key point is how much you travel. The more you travel, the more you will save. You have to bear in mind that electric vehicles have a limited range, and this calculator is based on home charging only. Public charging prices can differ.
How to charge an electric moped
The thought of charging can be daunting but it really shouldn’t be. All-electric Mopeds and Scooters that we offer can be charged using a standard 3-pin socket that you have at home which usually takes between 5/6 hours to fully charge from empty. This can be done overnight so, no waiting around! You won’t even realise that you have had to wait that long.
Just remember it is good practice to keep your bike charged, not letting it run too low – especially in the winter months! Keeping charged between 80%-100% will mean you’re doing the battery a favour and making sure that you will always have miles of effortless travel.
