How You Can Save Money by Riding an Electric Scooter - GOTRAX

Gas prices and inflation are not a great combination. It looks like there is no light at the end of this gas-guzzling tunnel but there is, GOTRAX! Our electric scooters are your best option for saving that gas money for something else such as bills, groceries, and other expenses.

Let's put it into perspective. $1.00 of Gas with a national average of $4.25 per gallon and an average car getting 25 miles per gallon will take you approximately 5.6 miles. On the other hand, $1.00 worth of electricity to charge, for instance, a XR Elite that only needs about 4 cents of electricity to get to a full charge, would take you approximately 280 miles. Buck for buck, an XR Elite will take you 50 times further than your average car could. That will save you over $600.00 a year in gas alone. That itself will pay for an entry level electric scooter. 

However, there are more savings to be had! The average depreciation and repair costs for a car is $1,085 a year considering oil changes, damaged windshields, etc... the list is endless. Meanwhile, the average depreciation and repair costs on an electric scooter is only $180. That's another $905.00 in savings. 

Getting tired of paying for parking? Not anymore. You can take your electric scooter inside of your office, home, or apartment. Luckily, all of our adult electric scooters come with a one-touch folding mechanism so you can save space and avoid carrying hassle. $18 per day is the average cost of parking in most major cities. Factoring in a 5-day work week, that is $90 per week just to park. If you aren't paying monthly, parking can cost you over $4,000 per year. 

Riding an electric scooter to and from work, especially for those with commutes within the city, can save you over $5,000 per year. Those are the numbers and they do not lie. 

Remember to ride safe and always wear a helmet!
