In Recent past, Electric Vehicles have become a talking point due the fact that modern day fuel-driven vehicles are posing more threats to mother Earth. More and more number of innovations is coming out in the field of automobiles in the form of manufacturing vehicles that can be powered by electricity so that it can help in reducing Global warming. One such innovation has been made by the Engineers from German in the form of manufacturing an Electric scoter.
The group of engineers from Germany responsible for the innovation says this electric scooter can run for over 32 KMS in a single recharge and it can cost you only one penny for each mile you travel. The Engineers work for a company in Germany by the name TP, short for Tante Paula or Aunt Paula.
The Electric Scooter is available in two variants. One variant is called by the name Maximilan II and it is powered by a 1000 watts Zero-emission electric engine whereas the other variant is called by the name Ferdinand II and this model is powered by a 500 watts Zero-emission Electric engine.
The 1000 watt (Maximilan II) electrically driven vehicle comes at a price tag of 1,840 pounds and the 500 watt electrically driven vehicle comes at a price tag of 1,330 pounds.
Both the models offer great deal of portability that lets you fold them down to just 35 cm wide, 139 cm long and 62 cm high so that it can easily fit into a train. The vehicles come with a removable battery and there is also a standard plug that allows riders to top up the power as and when required.
The developers were quoted saying “both the scooters clocks in at just a penny (0.7 rupees) for each mile it travels and they even carry bags are provided along with them making it that much easier to sleek them under your bed. Throughout the development phase, we kept in mind that we are designing something innovative to put in to the place of people’s lives, helping them to switch into the greener and more economical world”.
Both the models can travel up to the speed of 20 kmph for over an hour with a single recharge. They can be driven by anyone who has a pre-2001’s driving license or else who has taken the CBT (Compulsory basic Training course). Both the vehicles are exempted from tax paying and congestion charges.
