Wouldn't it be great to have an economical ride that could
help you get those errands done while also enjoying the experience
in return? Get an Eco-glide electric scooter. It's definitely
worth all the dollars you pay for. Since it runs on electricity,
it radically cuts your gas budget, although a small rise in
energy bills is expected as your battery recharging eats up
as much as 8 cents each time.
But, the plus factor in this type of vehicle is subconsciously
you are actually helping preserve the environment because
it does not pollute the air. Although the acquisition cost
is high, you will be saving a lot of money in the long run.
This is the ideal vehicle not only for ecologically conscious
consumers but practically to everybody, since each one is
duty-bound to help curb carbon dioxide emissions.
Why are Eco-glide electric scooters
Well, simply for the reason that finally a vehicle that is
certified as truly green is now in the market. This is possible
with the technological breakthrough in battery design, that
a full charge will actually cover a distance of 15 to 20 miles
is indeed encouraging. The speed limit for Eco-glide electric
scooter is 30mph at a charging time of less than four hours.
The main power of the Eco-glide comes from the 1500w sealed
dc brushless induction motor and runs on two 48v 22AH Sealed
Lead Acid battery packs. The DC motor rests directly over
the rear wheel, while the bulky battery pack is at the center
of the scooter frame. Dead weights are conspicuously distributed
to maintain stability even at high speeds.
Comfort is achieved via the presence of an advanced suspension
system ably supported by two hydraulic filled shock absorbers
on the front and rear wheels. Part of the overall design is
not only to provide power for speed but also to stop the vehicle
when necessary. This is possible with the front wheel disc
brakes and the conventional rear wheel brake drums that give
precise stopping power in times of emergencies.
All other features like the headlight (with low/high beam);
the taillights; the stop light; the signal light; the speedometer/odometer;
and even the rear view mirrors pass the stringent tests of
the DOT and all other regulations imposed by the different
