The Power of $1Around here, we think that an electric bicycle is truly one of the most efficient ways of getting around. And the statistics seem to agree. To show you what we mean, let’s take $1 and see how far it can take you these days.
How far can you go on $1 these days?
|Mode of Travel:||Energy Source:||Distance Traveled:|
|Car||About 1/4 gallon of gas||5 miles|
|Public Transit||About 2/5 of a fare (NYC)||6 miles|
|Motorcycle||About 1/4 gallon of gas||12.5 miles|
|Hybrid Car||About 1/4 gallon of gas||13.5 miles|
|Scooter||About 1/4 gallon of gas||21 miles|
|EVELO Electric Bicycle||13 recharges||250-500 miles|
Up to 500 miles for $1? That’s right – with an average charge costing just 8 cents and giving you up to 40 miles of electric-assisted riding, you can go for half a thousand miles on just a single buck.
In fact, we decided to go ahead and prove this ourselves. We invite you to join the EVELO Team as they completed their Trans-American Electric Bike Tour – traveling over 4,000 miles from coast to coast on less than $20 worth of electricity! Find out more!
