How good for the environment are electric scooters (e-scooters) - are they 'green' and do they cause any pollution through emissions?
E-scooters don’t give off any greenhouse gases or tailpipe emissions. But they're not entirely 'carbon-free' because of the processes involved in making them. One study found that e-scooters produce more greenhouse gas emissions per mile than traveling by bus, bicycle, moped or on foot because of the processes involved in manufacturing them and transporting them to charging stations.
