Electric scooters are upgraded based on traditional scooters. Components such as batteries, motors, lights, instrument panels, and computer chips have been added to human-powered scooters, and systems such as wheels, brakes, and frames have been upgraded, resulting in products such as electric scooters. Electric scooters are generally a means of transportation in daily life, and are especially popular with working people. At present, the price of electric scooters ranges from 1,000 yuan to tens of thousands yuan, and they are very popular among young people in large cities in developed countries.
Electric folding bicycles are upgraded on the basis of bicycles. On this basis, components such as batteries, motors, lights, dashboards, and computer chips have also been added, resulting in products such as electric folding bicycles. Electric folding bicycles are classified according to the size of the wheels, and there are many kinds. In this article, only small-wheel electric folding bicycles are discussed, that is, electric folding bicycles with tires between 14 inches and 20 inches.
The tire size of an electric scooter is generally no more than 10 inches, and it is relatively easy to be driven on general urban roads. However, when encountering poor roads, the passing of electric scooters is not ideal, and you must be extra careful when driving.
The tire size of an E bike folding bike is generally above 14 inches, so it can be flexibly ridden on urban roads or poor roads, and the passability is better than that of electric scooters.
Both electric scooters and electric folding bicycles are non-motorized vehicles without additional safety devices. In theory, they are only allowed to drive in non-motorized lanes at low speeds. Electric scooters generally adopt a standing riding method, with a relatively high center of gravity, which is flexible and convenient. You can install a seat on such a car and ride in a sitting position. The center of gravity of electric folding bicycles is relatively low, and it is also a riding method that everyone has been accustomed to since childhood.
3. Bearing capacity
The carrying capacity of electric scooters and electric folding bicycles is not much different. However, since the electric folding bicycle can be equipped with racks or sub-seats, it can carry two people if necessary. Therefore, electric folding bicycles are relatively more advantageous in terms of carrying capacity.
4. Driving difficulty
The driving method of electric scooters is similar to that of scooters, so electric scooters are riding in a standing position, and some people who are just starting to use it need a little practice to ride smoothly. Riding in a seated position is as difficult as an electric folding bicycle. Electric folding bicycles are based on bicycles, so riding is less difficult.
Electric scooters and electric folding bicycles are both tandem with two wheels, and the motor power is basically the same. However, electric folding bicycles have larger wheels and better passability, so they can have higher speeds on urban roads. The riding posture of the electric scooter is standing and the center of gravity is high. It is not recommended to drive at too high speed. The sitting speed can be slightly higher. The speed of electric scooters and electric folding bicycles is not recommended to exceed 20 kilometers per hour.
6. Riding without electricity
In the absence of electricity, the electric scooter can be slid with a foot, and the electric folding bicycle can be ridden with human power like a bicycle. At this point, electric folding bicycles are better than electric scooters.
