Whether you use an electric bike to augment your car use, or you rely on it completely for your transportation, an E-Bike or E-Car can save you a tremendous amount of money. For the cost of one gallon of gasoline at around $3.00, you can recharge your electric bike or scooter about 60 times @ .05 cents each time. A fully charged battery can take you up to 25 miles. 60 X 25 miles = 1500 miles!
Choosing to use an E-Bike or E-Car is an easy way to help reduce your carbon footprint. You will be reducing pollution in the form of CO2, NOX, tire and brake lining fragments. Did you know that the average car emits one pound of CO2 for every mile driven?
You will also be using less materials, fuel, and infrastructure. Reduced CO2 emissions are most important because scientific opinion is close to unanimous that global warming is already happening. For every 500 miles an E-Bike is used in place of a car, approximately 25 gallons of fuel is saved!
A Simple Lifestyle
For short errands up to a mile and on some congested commutes, E-Bikes can be quicker than a car! The pace of life slows a bit while riding an E-Bike. Stress goes down; enjoyment of life goes up because you will actually be riding that bike more often. It's more fun! Traffic snarls aren't frustrating and stressful. In fact, the worse the jam is the more gratifying the ride. It doesn't just feel like you're "beating the system". In many ways, you are!
Money in your pocket!
