The available options are environmental friendly without compromising on speed. Some electric scooters for adults attain speeds of up to 27 miles per hour while carrying a person weighing as much as 300 pounds.

This has become popular among locals who prefer the adult electric scooters instead of walking in the heat. Singapore is a hot and humid country with temperatures averaging between 95 and 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

Electric Scooters and the Environment

The designers work hard to build scooters that are light, portable, sturdy, easy to use and maintain and having a minimal effects on the environment. The majority of the electric scooters for adults have an energy efficiency of 2,000 MPGe. This means that an adult can cover 500 miles on a charge worth 1 USD.
