Should you buy an electric scooter? | BOOM

There is an electric vehicle revolution happening, the latest being from Ola--the company that is otherwise known for its ride-hailing app but has now launched a two-wheeler under the name of Ola Electric. What are electric vehicles, how do electric vehicles work and how are they different from internal combustion engines or petrol or diesel engines that we know about it? BOOM Explains.

Hormazd Sorabjee, Editor, Autocar India, says that one thing you have to understand is that, right now, because of the battery cost it is much more expensive than a conventional car. EV's are just good for city driving. They cannot be your single car, because if you want to go out of town you will have a problem. The charging network is not there plus there is too much drama on the range dropping. So it is difficult to take it out of town. But if you are in the city it is very very practical but you have to ensure two things - a dedicated parking space and a charging point. Once you have that either in the office, or at home it is super practical, super easy to use in town as a pure city vehicle. These factors are important when buying an EV, just to sum, only for city use, and ensure that you are never far from a plug either at home or office and dedicated parking.

Watch BOOM's Govindraj Ethiraj discuss electric scooters and whether you should be buying them or not with Hormazd Sorabjee.
