The global market for personal mobility devices is expected to reach $10 billion by 2024, according to Market Watch. Personal mobility devices such as scooters, hoverboards, and electric skateboards belong in this category. These modes of transportation gained plenty of followers because of their compact size and convenience.
Travelers find usingÂ e-vehicles as a cheaper wayÂ of getting around a new place as it is also good for the environment. But can they be considered as the transportation of the future? Hereâ€™s how electric personal transportation will change the way we travel.Â
E-Unicycles For Quick Trips
Hover Patrol explains the benefits of e-unicyclesÂ as it is one of the best ways to travel from one place to the next. Make sure to wear a helmet to protect yourself from falling which can happen a few times at the start, but once you learn this technique, you will be able to move back and forth soon enough. There is so much to master with this mode of transportation, but it will be rewarding once you do.Â
Lightweight Travel with Motorized Skateboards
Motorized skateboards are almost theÂ same as that of traditional skateboards. The only difference is that the former is using an electric motor to help move the skateboard forward. But, how is it possible to control this mode of transportation? It usually comes with a remote control that handles the speed and brakes. The motor can be found within the wheels or under the skateboard. Whatâ€™s great about this type of vehicle is that it is lightweight, compact, and can travel at a reasonable speed.Â
E-Scooters As Alternative Commute
Electric scooters are another example of light vehicles that may change the future of transportation. Aside from running on battery, this compact vehicle can squeeze through a traffic jam. Although its speed is relatively slow, ranging from 25 to 30 kph, it is a decent vehicle that can transport you to your next destination. The best part is that even when you are caught in rush hour, you will be able to navigate the streets easily because of the size of your ride.
Light electric vehicles such as e-unicycles, motorized skateboards, and e-scooters may be seen as nuisances at first. However, when people try them out, they may consider these vehicles as a viable means of transportation in the long run.
