Ego Electric Scoota beats every cash drain going

Susi Weaser Tech 5 Comments

There’s not a country in the world where people aren’t currently freaking the hell out about petrol prices. And the environment. And congestion. Actually, that last one might just be London, but by god it’s a bitch. So, it’s with perfect timing that Firebox launches the Ego Electric Scooter, which means you don’t have to pay for petrol, road tax or the congestion charge. You’ll get 40 miles of travelling per 8 hour charge, although with a top speed of 30 miles, it’s more suited to a city than zooming about the countryside.

Compared to other models on the road, it’s not even that expensive – £1,000 seems a reasonable price for being able to dump the car/bus pass/tube journey. If you passed your test prior to February 2001 you don’t even need any training, although if it’s after, or you don’t have a driving licence, you’ll need to complete a CBT course.

Get yours here.

    Wow! £1000, what a bargain! Definately thinking about getting one of these! Travelling around London is such a drag, most certainly puts me off even going out sometimes. Can’t wait to start buzzing around on one of these. Not only that but environmetaally friendy too! Where the hell have they been all these years! Hmm??
