E-Cruiser

The E-Cruiser electric scooter has come of age. The importance of a healthy environment has preoccupied the populace worldwide. In fact a lot of concerted effort has been done lately to address the problem of ecological balance, preservation of flora and fauna and of course the accumulation of greenhouse gases.

eCruiser Electric Scooter

With man's concern for the environment now evident, our generation may yet see mother earth regenerate to the 70's level. Man has developed ways to reduce one's carbon footprint. Our power sector has showed signs of a shift from disastrous fossil fuels to one that is environment friendly. But the biggest contributor to this effort is the transportation sector, particularly industrial complexes that produce electric vehicles. One company that is involved in this endeavor is Green E Motors, which developed the E-Cruiser precisely to address the problem of carbon dioxide pollution. This move is in the right direction since an electric vehicle is totally emission free and also silent; thereby reducing in effect sound pollution.

What is an E-Cruiser?

The E-Cruiser is a two-wheeled vehicle designed more as a scooter. One hundred-percent electric powered, the E-Cruiser is approved by the DOT, and can be used even on the roadway and cruises at speeds up to 30mph. The E-Cruiser electric scooter is recommended for use in urban centers, or as mode of transport in school campuses, to run errands to and from supermarkets or just simply cruise along and enjoy the scenic spots. It is your all around thoroughly efficient electric scooter.

The powertrain of the E-Cruiser is a 1600-watt sealed brushless induction motor that is mounted over the rear wheel and capable of covering 50miles on a single charge. Battery recharging takes about 4 hours (80-percent) and 6 hours for a full charge. The E-Cruiser unit comes with a standard battery pack of either a Silicon Lead-Acid battery or the Lithium-ion battery. The latter being preferred for it is lightweight and has a longer battery life.

DOT Likes!

Rider comfort is assured on the E-Cruiser with the presence of oil-filled shock absorbers on both front and rear wheels. The vehicle can carry a total passenger load of up to 350lbs and has a 2-speed gear system that provides extra power when scaling steep roads of up to 20-percent incline. A generous storage space is also provided behind the seat on the E-Cruiser. Standard features of the electric scooter include the headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals and a horn all approved by the DOT.

Additional safety features of the E-Cruiser include the disc brake at the front wheel and brake drum at the rear. The only drawback to the cruiser is its weight, relatively heavy at 220lbs, although its performance capability more than make-up for this shortcoming.

What about maintenance and warranty?

Maintenance is very minimal since it runs on an induction motor, so only one moving part needs attention and that is the armature. Besides that the motor is sealed and designed to outlive the frame of the E-Cruiser. Only the burnt light bulbs need to be replaced, the worn-out brake pads needs to undergo periodic check-ups and also special attention must be given to the tubeless tires for it is prone to damage especially the treads after sustained use.

One year unlimited mileage warranty comes standard with new units and it covers both parts and labor for almost everything, but excluded to the warranty are light bulbs and brake pads. The battery pack of the E-Cruiser is likewise covered with a 5000-mile or 6-month warranty.
