Speaking about the launch, e-Motive Managing Director, Paul Williams, gushed, “The reliability, rideability and all-round consumer package that comes with these scooters finally makes owning and running a zero-emissions vehicle affordable, supremely practical and desirable.”
To begin with, the e-motive range will only be available via a network 25 dealers in London and South East England, where people will get a chance to test-ride the scooters and get tips from factory-trained technicians.
Each scooter ships with a two year unlimited mileage warranty, as well as free roadside assistance, full after-sales servicing and dealer support.
After charging via a regular mains socket, the entry-level e1 tops out at 40mph and can reach up to 50 miles on a single charge. At a price of £2999 ($5000) the ‘sporty’ mid-range e3 gets 55mph and can go up to 70 miles on a charge. The top of the range e5 is capable of travelling up to 80 miles on a single charge, can reach a top speed of 65mph, and costs £3999 ($6700).
“We are thrilled to be the first brand to make electrically-powered vehicles a real option for ordinary people in the UK,” added Williams.
