Podcast ‘Technotronika’: How Electric Scooters Became a Must-have Thing for Everyone? S01E03
The third podcast of ‘Technotronika’ is given to the topic: ‘How Electric Scooters became a must-have thing for everyone?’ Do electric scooters have the potential to change the way we look at ground transport in general? To understand and analyze the relevance of electric scooters from many perspectives, we have a guest representative – Ignas Survila. The CEO and Founder of â€žUnicorn Scootersâ€œ who explains the benefit of micro-mobility for transport infrastructure and people.
During the conversation, Ignas Survila represents a few of reasons, why electric scooters became the necessity for nowadays person: people can reach or leave electric scooters almost everywhere that solves the parking problem. Moreover, a growing interest in the market makes electric scooters more affordable for everyone. Also, electric scooters develop micro-mobility that makes people choose alternative transportation instead of wasting their time in traffic jams. Ignas Survila reveals that a car is an excellent solvent for long trips from one city to another or further, but inside the city, it becomes a complicated option.
According to the research of big European cities, over 70% of car trips in the city are between 5 and 6 kilometers. Even more – between 2 and 3 kilometers. Knowing that distance of 5-6 kilometers is too short for driving and too long for walking, micro-mobility becomes a perfect solution.
Also, Ignas Survila says that in the future we can expect a transformation of transport infrastructure to bigger roads for micro-mobile transportation instead of cars.
