By implementing these tips, you can significantly extend the lifespan of your electric scooter or electric bike battery. Optimizing charging practices, storing the battery properly, maintaining suitable riding conditions, and performing regular maintenance are key to ensuring long-lasting battery performance.
For the UK to become a leader in EV manufacturing, it needs large factories (called gigafactories) making EV batteries and quickly, as demand for EVs is taking off ahead of a 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars, and the requirement for all new cars to be fully zero emission by 2035.
It still feels like the UK could win a good share of the EV market, but it is going to have to get its gigafactories up and running. With UK battery output still tiny, the temptation is for EV producers to move overseas.
