A 1kWh battery pack costs 18 cents to fully charge off the mains and can produce a commuting distance of 50 – 70km. Personal electric vehicles are becoming quite popular. In Ireland as in many other European countries, the electric unicycles and electric scooters have become one of the best commuting partners of many individuals. As we grow in population, we find it’s not always easy to find a suitable, efficient or affordable way of transportation. Those individuals living in areas where the access to public transport is limited or inaccessible, might find these vehicles of good use. They are an attractive option to those who are looking for alternative ways of transportation. These scooters or electric unicycles range from 400 to 2000 euros or more depending of the range, power or comfort you are looking for. This might appear big money to spend on a personal electric vehicle alone, but when used everyday it could save you a lot of money in the long run allowing you to commute faster without having to sit for hours in traffic everyday.
