With Record High Fuel Prices, is it Time to Consider Electric?

With the rising cost of fuel, alongside government environmental initiatives, (such as Clean Air Zones that work to make using petrol and diesel more expensive), we predict that more people will consider electric mopeds and e-bikes. In this article, we’ll explore how electric mopeds can help you manage the increased costs without compromising the convenience of your car.

We’ve all seen the effects of increased fuel prices and it’s no secret that these are set to rise again. Already at a record high, fuel prices could rise as high as £1.65 per liter, according to RAC. So, could now be the time to consider an electric alternative?

With the rising cost of fuel, alongside government environmental initiatives, (such as Clean Air Zones that work to make using petrol and diesel more expensive), we predict that more people will consider electric mopeds and e-bikes.

In this article we’ll explore how electric mopeds can help you manage the increased costs without compromising the convenience of your car.

Reduce Expenses Without Losing Your Car.

The first concern on many minds is the thought of losing the convenience that a car offers. You may need space for luggage, loading or just passenger space for your family members. We understand that switching to a bike is not really an option for everyone. However, choosing an eclectic moped doesn’t necessarily mean losing your car.

Switch to an Electric Moped For Those Shorter Journeys

Instead of replacing your car, why not save it for those longer journeys and switch to an electric moped for your shorter trips. This will not only help make your fuel last longer but could also save you money on a range of additional costs too. NIU e-mopeds are priced as an affordable mode of urban transportation, coming in on average at £2600 for a new vehicle, they can be used alongside your main mode of transport as a cost effective solution.

Reducing Fuel Usage – Drive less, Ride more

By using an electric moped to get around the city, your car fuel will last you much longer, reducing your visits to the pump. Unlike petrol and diesel vehicles, electric mopeds rely on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, so there’s no need to fill up.

These batteries can be removed and charged at your own convenience and cost less than 1p per mile to run. Significantly lower than any petrol or diesel alternative. You can still enjoy traveling longer distances in your car, without wasting precious fuel on quick trips to your local store.

Electric Mopeds Parking

Parking in the City

Cities are notorious for high congestion and lack of parking. Parking in the city center can be expensive and parking in the wrong place by accident, can result in heavy penalties.

Across cities such as Bristol, you can often find free parking for mopeds and motorcycles so you can pop into the city without worrying about parking charges. You’ll also find that the journey is much quicker, thanks to moped riders being able to ride in bus lanes.

Fewer Clean Air Zone Charges

As we know governments across the UK are finally starting to take on climate change and have initiated clean air zones throughout the country.

If vehicles enter these clean air zones and do not meet the classified standard, they may face penalty charges. Electric mopeds meet these standards and can pass through these clean air zones freely. Costing you nothing.

By having a moped, you can also save time as there’s no need to take alternative routes to avoid these zones. Simply hop onto your bike and enjoy the ride.

No Additional Road Tax

Not only are mopeds cheaper to run, maintain and power, there’s also zero road tax to be paid. This added bonus applies to any electric vehicle. Saving you even more.

Save on Maintenance Costs

Did we mention that the maintenance of an electric moped is next to none? Whilst it’s recommended to get your moped serviced regularly, they do not cost nearly as much like that of a car and any repairs needed are often very affordable.

MOTs of cars cost on average £50 and a full-service cost on average £150, not considering any repairs that may need to be done. On average an electric moped costs around £25 to MOT and £80 to service, saving you nearly £100 each year. There’s really very little that can go wrong with an electric moped, so it’s unlikely that you’ll need to worry too much about repairs.

It’s also worth mentioning that electric mopeds purchased from brand new, will not need an MOT for the first 3 years, saving you even more.

Halve your fuel costs by dropping down to a single car household.

Many households right now own multiple cars, with partners and family members needing to be at different places at the same time. However, this may not be 100% necessary, and switching one for an electric moped could save you a fortune.

By switching to a single-car household you could more than halve your transport expenses whilst staying mobile with an electric moped.
