In the fast-paced world of food delivery and rising petrol costs, sustainable vehicles are becoming a more important factor for Dashers to consider. Our official Light Electric Vehicle partner - Zoomo - is now offering electric mopeds, an eco-friendly alternative to petrol-powered scooters, mopeds and motorbikes making them an ideal choice for Dashers. By switching from a petrol vehicle to a Zoomo electric moped rental, you can significantly reduce your impact on the environment while enjoying the benefits of no longer paying for petrol.

Explore the sustainable advantages of electric scooters, including their low CO2 emissions, long-term environmental impact, and other noteworthy developments that support a greener future.

Reduce your Carbon Emissions

One of the most compelling reasons to transition to a Zoomo e-moped is its significantly lower carbon emissions. The average petrol scooter or motorbike emits approximately 11.5kg of CO2 per 100km, whereas an electric scooter consumes only 1.36kg of CO2 per 100km. When you consider the consumption over a year, assuming an average of 200 km per week, the transition to an electric moped can save up to 1,061kg of CO2 emissions annually!

That's equivalent to the lifetime carbon sequestration of nearly four trees every year! By making this switch, you can actively contribute to improving air quality and reducing your environmental impact.

Contribute to a Quieter Environment

In addition to lower CO2 emissions, Zoomo electric mopeds offer the advantage of reduced noise pollution compared to their petrol counterparts. The silent electric motors allow for a more peaceful and quiet delivery experience. This is a more enjoyable environment for Dashers, customers and restaurants in the neighbourhoods where you are dashing around.

Save up to $530 a year on petrol

Energy-efficient: utilising electricity as their power source, leads to lower operating costs compared to petrol mopeds and motorbikes. The cost of electricity to charge an e-moped is also much lower than the expenses associated with fuel. When travelling 200km a week your electric scooter will cost you $1.8 to keep charged, this is compared to $12 for a petrol alternative to go the same distance. That is a massive savings of $530 a year!

No costly spare parts: you don't need to replace parts such as gearboxes, spark plugs, oil, clogged filters clutches and more, meaning that less can go wrong and it costs less to maintain. This reduction of parts replacement also reduces your impact on the environment. By choosing an electric scooter, Dashers can enjoy cost savings while contributing to a more sustainable and affordable delivery service.

Integrate with Renewable Energy

To further enhance the sustainability of Zoomo e-mopeds, consider charging them with renewable energy sources whenever possible. By utilising renewable energy such as solar or wind power to charge your electric moped, you can reduce your reliance on fossil fuels and minimise the overall environmental impact of your deliveries. This step ensures a truly carbon-neutral approach to dashing.

Making the switch from a petrol scooter or motorbike to a Zoomo electric moped is an excellent opportunity to adopt a more sustainable approach. With significantly lower CO2 emissions, reduced noise pollution, and the potential for renewable energy integration, Zoomo electric mopeds offer a compelling solution for eco-conscious Dashers.

By choosing this greener alternative, you can actively contribute to cleaner air, save costs, and support initiatives that promote a sustainable future. To help you make the switch, all Dashers get access to 10% off e-moped Zoomo plans! Embrace the power of sustainable mobility by renting a Zoomo electric moped today and pave the way for a greener food delivery ecosystem.
