Demand for electric scooters in Russia has quietly risen in the face of the epidemic
Under the influence of the spread of coVID-19 news, the demand for electric scooters in Russia has quietly increased.Avito, an online classified advertising service, told the satellite news agency that the popularity of electric scooters could be explained by the fact that they allow people to shop and travel without taking public transport.
"With the spread of coVID-19 news, there is a growing demand in Russia for some summer vehicles that can move around cities quickly and without contact."By 2020, demand for mopeds will grow 34 percent, but electric scooters are growing even faster, and demand is 2.5 times higher."
As a result, orders for electric scooters in Russia have roughly tripled.
Alexei Kuragin, Managing director of Goods and services at Avito, said it was no surprise that demand for scooters had increased in the wake of the outbreak, as it would allow businesses to deliver their goods and food to takeaways faster and more safely.
"For the average user, it is a convenient means of transportation to quickly and contactlessly go shopping, to work or to other places without risking health by taking the subway or bus.And you don't need a license to ride an electric scooter."
