Put Money back in your Pocket
With a 20% Government grant, the e-moped comes competitively priced and has a running cost of less than 1p/mile. Maintenance is low as there’s no engine – there’s very little to go wrong. The mopeds come with a Panasonic battery and a Bosche motor. A top-up charge is approx. 20p from a household 3-pin plug.
Cost per mile
300 Miles a month
Most rough estimates put it at about 25p to charge a standard electric moped battery for a 50 mile range.
Even with petrol scooters achieving 90 – 120mpg, at £1.30 a litre a 50 mile journey would cost you over £2 to complete!
(£1.30 * 4.54 = £5.90 for 1 gallon, or £5.90 for 130 miles range, or 4.5p a mile)
Comparatively, to charge a NIU batteries which are around 1740Wh, will take 1.74kWh.
For the UK, the average price per kWh in 2018 is around 13p. 13*1.74 = 23p, or under 1p a mile.
If you commute around 300 miles a month, that works out as:
And if you’re commuting, you can recharge your electric moped at work for free!
Around 70% of journeys undertaken today are local. So if you’re only going a couple of miles it will cost you pennies. That’s a no brainer, especially when a top-up charge is around 20p. An e-moped can significantly reduce your commute time by letting you weave your way around stationary traffic. Plus, many cities allow you to drive in bus lanes.
EcoMove has partnered with Trees for Cities who have planted over 1,000,000 urban trees in parks, streets, woodlands, schools, hospitals and housing estates since they started in 1993. EcoMove will plant one tree for every moped we sell which will bring real benefits to our cities, health and wellbeing.
Just remember when you buy one of our mopeds you will also plant a tree!

Need we say more?
Not forgetting the time you’ll save, allowing you to do the things that you want to do – priceless.
Plus, e-mopeds are better for the environment than petrol vehicles, and parking is so much easier.
And if you currently travel by public transport, consider how much you spend on fares or season tickets over three years . . .

The main question to ask is ‘What is the distance of your commute and will you be restricted to 30mph all the journey?’
If your commute is greater than 10 miles each way and you will be travelling in areas of 40mph and above, check out the NGT.
If your travel distance is less than 10 miles each way and is restricted to 30mph. check out the M+ series.
If you go less than 5 miles in 30mph zones only, the U series may be just the job.
