Using modern platforms such as www.uship.com, international transport of the scooter may cost less than ₹10.000.
Uship makes it possible to make use of otherwise wasted space in international transport. There may be similar services in India.
An electric motor does not require maintenance and for basic maintenance it is possible to use regular scooter garages or modern service providers such as Bosch E-scooter Service with over 14.000 locations globally. (Bosch is producer of electric motors).
Air Pollution by Disc Brakes causes 20% of the total emissions by a standard car and the pollution (ultra-fine dust) is more toxic for humans than exhaust fumes.
"Vehicle tailpipe emissions are going down, but the emissions from disc brakes will remain to some extent, even if you drive an electric car," Weber said. "Therefore, this kind of process will continue to play out in the future and will be an important consideration when we look at the health effects of particulate matter." (Phys.org)
