I want to sell my car and buy an electric scooter for my daily 20-mile commute, but I'm having trouble finding comprehensive/updated information on the web. Beyond what is written on electric-bikes.com, evfinder.com and electric-scooter-world.com, does anyone have any opinions or real-world stories on any of the following scooters:
1. Evader EV1000 (there is a dealer near me)
2. EVT 4000e
3. X-Treme XM-2000
6. Oxygen Lepton
1. What is the life expectancy of these scooters?
2. Can I count on any dealer, distributor or manufacturer support for parts, maintenance and repair?
3. How well do these scooters perform/hold up in the rain (I live in the great wet Northwest)? Riding in the rain will be necessary for me.
Anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated.
