Silence e-moto scooters arrive in UK | NEWS
Spanish e-scooter brand, Silence has arrived in Great Britain. The scooters are designed, engineered and manufactured in Barcelona, which makes a refreshing change. The range consists of four all-electric models starting at just £2695 for a 50cc equivalent.
Electric scooters sales have gone up 50% in the last year and will no doubt rise further this year as more and more commuters search for alternative ways to travel.
Cheap to run
A scooter will usually make an excellent choice for most average distance commutes. An electric one can make that option cheaper and greener as well. With running costs of around £0.01 per mile and no ULEZ/congestion charging to worry about, switching to a silent mode of transport can be attractive to modern Millenials both ecologically and financially.
