Indian cities are buzzing with traffic and air pollution, due to which there is a need for a greener mode of commute than petrol vehicles.
Of the top 30 most polluted cities in 2019, 21 of them were various cities from India.
Indians spend 7% of their day commuting for their work and an average of 2 hours per day. They do so at an average speed of 20 km/hr.
The average distance of commute is around 40 km and with a fuel efficiency of around 40 km/l, a petrol vehicle can consume 312 liters of petrol that will cost you around 23,400. An electric scooter can help you save around 24,000 just considering the fuel charges.
One of the smarter and greener forms of commute are electric scooters or e-scooters. With no emission, noiseless technology, they cause no harm to the atmosphere, unlike petrol vehicles. Let’s have a look at what electric scooters are.

Electric Scooter and Future of Smart Commute
In India, 21% of air pollution is caused by vehicles and due to this, there has been an increase in demand for electric scooters throughout the country.
The Indian cities need to attain sustainability and the electric scooter can be a big step towards it. E-scooters can also easily fit into the current road infrastructure and also not cause any damage to the environment.
With electric vehicles on Indian roads we may never have to turn to petrol ever again.
Government and Future of Electric Scooters
According to BIS Research, the EV market is expected to grow by 43.13% in between 2019 to 2030. With BS6 vehicles being released to the market, electric scooters will be in fierce competition with the petrol vehicles leading to an increase in sales.
Moreover, the finance ministry of India has also reduced the goods and services tax on electric vehicles and charges to 5% compared to the previous 12% and 18%.
We can also expect India to adopt the same with electric vehicles as a step towards a smart commute future.To Test Drive your favorite EeVe visit the Test ride page.!
