GLOBAL ELECTRIC SCOOTER MARKET
- The rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles and growing popularity of electric scooter sharing services in countries such as Us, Germany, France, and Spain are propelling the market growth
- Lockdown across cities combined with limited movement decreased the overall usage of e scooters overall in 2020.
- However once cities restarted post lockdown there was a shift away from public transport thereby increasing ridership for e scooters across multiple cities
- E-scooter Manufacturers are increasingly establishing battery swapping stations and developing a supercharger network to provide convenience to their customers.

Environmental issues created by gasoline cars and fuel economy have become increasingly important in recent years. The vehicle of new energy that is green, ecologically friendly, and inexpensive is not only a significant aim for the economic and social growth of many nations, but it is also the vehicle’s future development direction.
Electric cars with zero environmental emissions, mileage, and fuel consumption can be mutually equivalent. The e-scooter with an electric system has played a promising role in its design and development. The electric system is made up of a battery, a motor, a motor controller, and other electrical components.
The most significant function of an electric system is to provide power to the motor, which aids in the operation of the scooter.
The Indian two-wheeler sector has embraced the new concept of Electric Bikes and Scooters, which are extremely popular ways of personal transportation in industrialised nations such as the United States, Japan, and China. As a result, electrically charged bikes and scooters have a promising future in the field of personal mobility.
Indeed, there is a large range of cars that operate on electricity. Electric motorcycles, mobility scooters, and kick scooters are examples. All of them are classified as electric plug-in vehicles.
And, once again, there are electric bicycles. Although the number of electric scooter users has risen, concerns of safety and comfort must be solved if the number of users is to expand to a level that has a substantial impact on the ecological pollution.

In 2006, China produced 20 million E-bikes. China now has 50 million battery-powered bicycles on the road, with a tiny fraction powered by Li-ion batteries. The others are powered by lead acid batteries.
Around 2,500 businesses in China manufacture electric two- or three-wheeled cars. An electric scooter is a vehicle that moves thanks to an electric motor. It is also referred to as an e-scooter.
Certain countries employed different power sources for electric motors since it is dependent on the country’s laws. The rechargeable batteries utilised for the e-scooter have a range of 40 to 65km/h.
Electric scooters are now widely used in dockless scooter sharing services, to know more about this read out E-scooter sharing report.
The advent of the electric scooter demonstrates how far the engineering industry has progressed; the invention of the electric scooter allows it to replace the old scooter on the market. This electric scooter makes use of NiMH batteries, which are a typical power source for electric scooters.
This type of battery is rechargeable and has a lighter and denser capacity, making the design of such an electric scooter more practical and simple. Carbon fibre, steel, and titanium are popular materials used to create scooter frames.
Carbon fibre is the most commonly used material in the development of scooter frames. The phrase “carbon fibre” refers to a variety of composites that comprise various polymers, carbon, and graphite that are linked by an epoxy-resin matrix that may also contain metals or ceramics.
Steel is also widely utilized in the construction of scooter frames. Many scooter designers have refined the design of steel scooters using their many years of expertise.
Steels provide a comfortable ride, and steel frames may function as a spring to store energy when the rider forces the frame to bend at various points.
Humber, a bicycle manufacturer, displayed an electric tandem bicycle at the Stanley Cycle Show in London, England in 1896. The engine, which was powered by a bank of storage batteries, was installed in front of the back tyre.
A resistance put across the handlebars controlled the speed. This electric bicycle was designed primarily for racetrack use. It claimed to have a range of 121 kilometres to 100 miles (160 kilometres) per charge.
The motorbike had three speeds: 6.4 km per hour, 24 km per hour, and 56 km per hour. Later, during the All Harley Drag Racing event in Phoenix, Arizona, Kilocycle achieved a new quarter mile record of 7.824 seconds, breaking the 8 second barrier at 270 km/h utilising A123 Systems Li-ion nano-phosphate cells.
China is home to the vast majority of the world’s ETWs (96 percent). Japan is the second-largest ETW market, with yearly sales of 270,000 motorcycles in 2006 and an average annual growth rate of 13% since 2000.
In 2006, the European market was predicted to be worth 190,000 motorcycles each year. In Europe, electric bikes are mostly pedelecs.
Because of its substantial cycling infrastructure and deep-rooted bike culture, the Netherlands has the highest sales. Germany and Belgium are the next-largest pedelec markets.
Electric kick scooters are getting quicker and more feature-rich all the time. These scooters were little more than toys when they first entered the market a decade or two ago, and people would use them to get in and out of buildings.
There’s even a whole subsegment of the transportation industry dedicated to them these days, as well as a full-fledged World Championship racing series.
Segway is one of the most well-known brands in the world of e-mobility innovation, having been purchased by now-parent company Ninebot. It has maintained its position as a premier e-scooter manufacturer, and it has recently launched the GT Series, a new line of high-powered e-scooters.
