The use of personal electric vehicles or electric “rideables” are on the rise. Look around any major city, and you might spot a skateboard rider that isn’t even touching the ground. That’s because it’s likely electric. With the rise in traffic and a want to be eco-friendlier as well as reducing commuting costs, it’s no wonder people are looking to go electric for personal commuting and alternative forms of transportation more than just with electric cars.
At Xtreme Green Electric Vehicles, we’ve been long talking about the benefits of our vehicles can be to a variety of industries, like law enforcement, fire, security, agriculture and mining and beyond, but did you ever think about how it might benefit you just for everyday use? Our XForce vehicle can be registered as a low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) at a max speed of 25 mph and can go on any city streets (but no highways) and can be registered in most states. Wouldn’t it be nice to simply hop on your XForce for local commuting to the office, trips to the supermarket, swinging by to see friends, or heading to the local movie theater?
Better yet, maybe you could make your XForce work double duty. Perhaps you could use an XForce to help you get your work done on your local farm; but, then on weekends, you could use it to drive you and your produce to the farmer’s market to sell. Or maybe your homeowners’ association needs a vehicle for its security to patrol at night. Wouldn’t it be nice for your members to be able to check it out during the day to get around town for quick errands? Or if you really are work focused, you could use it to transport workers over construction or mining sites, but then use it to go from one location to another.
It might be time to rethink what electric vehicles can do for you—and maybe help to replace using your car!
