Green Electric Scooters has again reiterated their belief in the power of the green transport revolution with the recent addition of a range of scooters to their inventory. The move might not be far from the need to meet the increasing demand by customers across Ireland for cleaner transportation solutions, especially with the government of the country putting measures in place to make it easier for users of scooters to enjoy their ride.
There has been a steady increase in the demand for electric scooters, popularly referred to as e-scooters, in different parts of the globe. According to a report published by Grand View Research in February 2020, the value of the global electric scooters market size was estimated at over $18.6 billion in 2019. The report also projected the market to reach over $42 billion in 2030, driven by the increasing need for fuel-efficient vehicles, backed by increasing concerns over carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. The case is not particularly different in Ireland, with recent moves by the government suggesting that more people will adopt the usage of electric scooters nationwide.
According to a recent announcement made by the Minister for Transport in Ireland, Eamon Ryan, electric scooters and bikes will be given a stamp of government approval to be driven legally on Irish roads. In a related development, the plans have been approved to draw up legislation around the new and increasingly popular modes of transport. The plans will reportedly introduce a new vehicle category, powered personal transporters, which can be used in public to ensure the safety of road users.
“E-scooters have become an increasingly popular form of personal mobility in a short period of time,” Mr. Ryan said. “However, these devices are not legal under current Irish road-traffic law. I am implementing the commitment in the programme for government to regulate their use… so that they can be used in a safe manner.”
Green Electric Scooters is seemingly championing the cause to allow more people to meet their transportation needs using electric scooters and bikes. The company has a fleet of scooters for adults and children, all sourced from trusted brands and delivered to customers across Ireland.
