Are you starting to get scared every time you visit the fuel station? If so, maybe now is the time to start thinking about swapping your gas-guzzler for an eco-friendly and cheap to run electric vehicle.

Electric scooters have come on in leaps and bounds over the last five years and, although they’re still comparatively expensive to buy, they can still work out as a cost effective long-term solution.

The Plug In Sprint is one of the latest electric scooters to arrive in the UK – it’s built in China and imported by Emissions Free Solutions. It costs £3,800, which is quite a lot compared to the price of a similar spec Chinese-built 125cc petrol scooter, which could be had for less than £1,800. With electric you’re paying a premium for the expensive batteries, motor and electronics.
