Electric scooters might trample hoverboards when it comes to accessibility and speed. The VOMO scooter
easily outruns cars like the Daimler Smart CDI and Renault
Twizy, and it’s a lot safer and more compact than the new and poorly reviewed hoverboards. Do we sniff a trend comeback?
VOMO is the Lightest Electric Vehicle on the Market
The gadget, which hails from Hong Kong, holds the title of the lightest electric vehicle. It is powered by a 350-watt motor and can reach speeds of up to 20mph. This makes it faster than at least some cars.
The Gadget is Foldable and Rollable
VOMO makes commutes and short trips fun and quick, and it doesn’t have to deal with traffic or parking. Actually, this electric scooter can be folded for easy storage and carrying. The scooter, developed by VEETRON, comes with a signature 350-watt hub high-performance motor. Whenever you’re off the scooter, you can easily roll it like you would a suitcase. The VOMO is conveniently sized to fit anywhere.
This Electric Scooter is Safer than Most Mini Cars
While many scooters are equipped with hard plastic wheels, but this scooter uses durable tubeless inflatable tires. This guarantees users with a smooth ride that doesn’t give way to bumps on the road.
The scooter is high tech all around. It features a digital display that allows riders to go through the gadget’s features, which include: 5 power assist levels, total odometer and trip odometer, RPM readings, voltage readings and display readings in KMPH or MPH. It also keeps riders informed on the status of the scooter’s battery.
In terms of safety, VOMO is equipped with a safe-start feature, which ensures that the scooter won’t suddenly accelerate in crowded areas. The scooter is also equipped with a 120mm brake and a motor cutoff switch. Made from high-quality aluminium, the VOMO scooter is durable, and weighing just 14kg, it’s light.
Here Are Two Cars the VOMO Could Definitely Outrun
Cars and electric scooters are like apples and oranges. But to be real, an electric scooter might be a better alternative than a car that runs on fuel and is still slow. Take for example the Renault Twizy. Priced at $10,000, this car features only 17 horsepower. While it has good grip, there’s no way you can get anywhere in bad traffic with this kind of speed.
Another solid comparison is the Daimler Smart CDI model. It reaches 0-60mph in 19.5 seconds and is powered by 61 horsepower. This one packs a bigger punch, but at what price? This car’s tag reads $9,150. The VOMO costs $700 at most, and although it doesn’t seat two, it can get you wherever you need to go a lot faster. So, which is the honest to goodness better buy?
