Is it right to buy an electric scooter or a petrol one, know the advantages and disadvantages of both

Comparison: Nowadays electric vehicles are being talked about everywhere. The government is also making a lot of efforts to promote it. While this will benefit the environment, the dependence on conventional fuel diesel and petrol will also be reduced.

In the midst of all this, many people are always confused about whether buying an electric scooter will be a profitable deal for them or a petrol scooter is better. So let us tell here what are the advantages and disadvantages of both.


Petrol scooters are cheaper than electric scooters. At the same time, electric scooters are generally more expensive than petrol scooters. Although cheap electric scooters are also coming into the market now, the customers are not very satisfied with their range.

Running cost

The running cost of petrol scooters is high and the rates of petrol are also touching the sky very fast. On the other hand, talking about the running cost of an electric scooter, it costs very little to run it. The running cost of a simple electric scooter is around 50 paise per kilometre.


If a petrol scooter gets damaged in any corner of the country, you will easily find mechanics everywhere to fix it. At the same time, if the electric scooter gets damaged then its mechanics will not be easily available. But petrol scooters have to be serviced from time to time, whose charge becomes very high, while the service charge of electric scooters is very less.

Fuel and charging

Fuel is easily available everywhere for petrol scooters. Fuel can be filled in it from any petrol pump in any city. At the same time, not much charging infrastructure has been developed for electric scooters. This is also one of the biggest drawbacks.


You can also travel long distances easily with a petrol scooter, you cannot travel long distances with an electric scooter. Because it cannot be charged anywhere when it is discharged.
