E-scooters are becoming increasingly popular in the UAE. In Dubai, you may have seen a group of teenagers or even a well-dressed professional whizzing around on e-scooters. It’s a form of personal lightweight electric vehicle (PLEV) that offers quick, convenient and short-range mobility. An e-top scooter’s speed is roughly 20 kilometers per hour.
An e-scooter produces no emissions, making it one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transportation. It features two wheels that riders can ride while standing. However, the most recent e-scooter models include a seat and an extra wheel. They can be recharged in the workplace or at home.
E-scooters are the most popular and least priced means of micro-mobility in Dubai. The Roads and Transport Authority has just made e-scooters available in a few areas in Dubai (RTA). In Dubai’s five busiest districts, around 1500 electric scooters have been deployed.
