Energy Efficiency in Transportation
@autoscatto Is this illustration trying to tell us that #eScooters are more efficient than riding a conventional #bicycle or #walking even? That claim seems highly dubios to me, all the more so as the lifespan of most eScooters is too low for those contraptions to be #sustainable in any way. #traffic #energyefficiency
@autoscatto Just some recent numbers from #Switzerland's import statistics:
Average unit price of #eBikes imported from #Europe CHF 2035.-, from #Taiwan CHF 2200.- and from #China CHF 995.-. And now the average unit prices for #eScooters: From Germany CHF 852.-, from China CHF 244.-
Sorry to state the obvious, but we're talking about electric junk on wheels that will fill landfills. No #sustainability.
