6 carmakers that are betting electric scooters and bikes — not cars — are the future of city transportation September 25, 2019

Recently, more than 75,000 e-scooters have been registered before the June 30 deadline. Otherwise it would be illegal for owners of these e-scooters to “ride, cause or permit another person to ride” an unregistered device on public paths. The e-scooter registration regime aims to deter reckless riding and facilitate enforcement efforts against errant riders, to improve public safety for all path users. 73% of the registrants are between the ages of 21 and 50. This highlights the diverse groups of people in Singapore who have found such devices to be beneficial and convenient, especially for short journeys.
The micromobility revolution is in full swing worldwide, and it is not just startups that are vying for a piece of the e-bike and e-scooter market. Some well-known car-makers are also jumping on the bandwagon – betting electric scooters and bikes, not cars, are the future of city transportation.
