    If you’re in a city, getting around in heavy traffic is lots of hassle. Well, if you hate cycling in a city, but don’t want a car or motorbike, then these new UKEco Electric Scooters are worth looking at. On a single charge, the scooters can go up to 40 miles, and reach speeds of up to 30mph. Here’s the good bit, in the UK, there is no road tax to pay on an electric scooter, and it’s completely exempt from the congestion tax charge too!UkEco-60v-2000watt-Electric-Scooter-400x266

    Since the vehicle has zero emissions, you immediately become eligible for tax breaks that specifically relate to emissions! You will need to register the scooter with the DVLA (UK’s vehicle registration authority), and you will need insurance (a requirement for all motor vehicles in the UK), however, all of these fees are pretty low due to the low power of the scooter. Depending on when you got your UK licence, you might also need to take a Compulsory Bike Training (CBT) course to get the right licence for riding a scooter.

    The scooters come in a large range of colours, including black/silver, blue/white, yellow/black, red/white, purple/white, green/black, orange/black and all black. To use a great phrase from the UK Eco Scooters website, the 2000W motor is roughly equivalent to a “50cc petrol scooter without a noise like a bumblebee on steroids”. The electric scooters are pretty much silent!

    The UKEco 60v 2000watt Electric Scooters retail for around £1000, but UK Eco Scooters are currently running a special offer where the scooters are just £799.99.
