for sure, batteries are dirty little buggers. and electricity in Taiwan isnt all that clean either.
They were giving away free electric scooters a little while ago her eif you turne din your blue smokers.
We went shopping a while ago, cash in hand, to get 2 electric scooters. But damn, i kid you not the sales people thought we were some kind of spy. we asked far too complicated questions like how far on a charge? how many KWh per charge roughly? all they wanted to tell us is you can go xx km per xx$ which really told us nothing and here we are still driving a gas scooter.
You guys know of a good scooter shop, preferably down south, that have people who actually know something about the things? or have at least browsed the manual?
For me though, the scooters just don't quite go far enough. the best one was 50km per charge roughly. if I want to go to the nearest city, its 45+. so i wanted to ask them about buying additional batteries so i can swap them out if i run dead while out, the looks i got were priceless. but before I think they are dumb, is that idea dumb?
and about the cars. I saw them at a car show at taipei 101 maybe 4-6 years ago? they were outside and the size of a March. all cute and pretty for everyone cellphone to get a shot. they had built them, these cars were done and they were telling me they are just getting production taken care of and in a few years they will hit the market. My dumb ass forgot the name of the company though.
