I knew virtually nothing about scooters but was shopping for one for my son in college. I had contacted many places and still had no clue. When I called a2b scooters, I got great service. I believe his name was Jeff, told me about the different types and what would work best for my son. He saved me money on shipping even though I needed it asap. What a great company and even better customer service. You can't go wrong buying from them!! This is a company you can trust.

Why Go Electric?
Why go Electric?|
In recent years, electric motor and battery technology have advanced tremendously. Today's PEVís (Personal Electric Vehicles) have clear advantages over fossil fuel powered vehicles in the areas of performance, ease of use and operating costs. The technology of the future and the past.
If you drive a car the typical 12,000 miles a year, your vehicle annually leaves four-and-one-half metric tons of carbon in its wake. Because electric vehicles run on batteries and do not burn fossil fuels as their main system of propulsion, they provide the opportunity to reduce your personal environmental impact and improve local air quality.
Plenty of Torque
With their sophisticated electronic controls, today's motors are more efficient and produce an abundance of torque even with very little throttle. A 1-horsepower electric motor has about the same torque as a 3 horsepower gasoline engine and the torque is immediate, on demand.
Electric motors are quiet and give you an entirely different feeling when riding. Many gas-powered personal vehicles are louder than lawn-mowers and riding them is banned in many neighborhoods. Quiet electric vehicles seem to glide down the road with ease and are welcomed in most communities.
There's no grease or oil to get to get your hands or clothes dirty. No foul exhaust or gasoline fumes and it never leaks oil. You can safely store an electric vehicle in your home or apartment.
Electric motors cost almost nothing to run. Instead of burning up expensive fossil fuels every trip, electric vehicles are recharged by plugging them into the wall sockets. Given the rising gas prices, going electric makes good financial sense!
