E-mopeds vs. E-bikes: understanding the differences 

Each addition of an electric vehicle in your city can do wonders to the environment and to the people around you. An eco-friendly commute solution dopes not only cuts on pollution and noise but also on costs. With the increasing prices of fuels day after day, the most economic and smart call of the day will be an electric vehicle. 

E-mopeds:

E-mopeds or electric mopeds are also known as the ‘sit-down scooter’. The model looks somewhat similar to the gasoline mopeds however the body conceals the storage for the mechanics and electric completely. It also offers space to store your helmet. The licensing requirements are minimal as compared to the heavy ones. 

Electric bikes

E-Bikes are just bicycles with a motor. In its looks as well as functions. You will still use pedals in this one to move it forward as you would do with the normal bicycles. But the extra motor makes you ride faster as it provides the push.
