The first e-scooter comes from the UK’s best-selling bicycle brand. The Carrera impel is-1 e-scooter will be available from Halfords from February 16 and will bring you back 399 euros. It offers a number of innovative functions.
In addition to a maximum range of 18 miles and a top speed of 24 km / h, features include 8.5-inch pneumatic tires for a quieter, more comfortable ride and a Double braking system with disc brakes front and rear for a more effective stop.
The new e-scooter also has a quick folding mechanism for easy mobility and storage (practical for carrying on the go) and a multifunctional LED display The speed, range and driving mode are displayed here. For additional security, the Carrera e-scooter has a built-in pin lock with electronic alarm as well as an immobilizer and cable lock.
Carrera e-scooter drivers can use various four-speed modes and a walking assistance mode – depending on the speed that is best suited for their journey. It also has an IPX5 waterproof rating, which means it is rain and puddle resistant, making it suitable for everyday driving in UK weather.

Says Matthew Banks from Halfords:
“We saw that the demand for e-scooters has increased and that the only trend towards e-mobility that will apparently continue to grow. They could be used for shorter journeys and travel times could be reduced if personal e-scooters were legalized. It was important to us that the Carrera e-scooter had all the features that you would expect from our best-selling Carrera range at an affordable price, so that everyone can at some point have access to the advantages of an e-scooter shuttle service. “
A survey by Halfords found that public support for privately owned e-scooters is overwhelming for them to become legal. 52% now aim to use them for commuting to work. The survey of 2,000 people, in partnership with YouGov, also shows that more than half of those surveyed believe that legalization can help address traffic congestion and air pollution problems.
Along with e-bikes, using e-scooters safely can revolutionize the way we travel and help address pollution and congestion issues, Halfords claims. The survey shows that 55% of the public think e-scooters are good for the environment, while 53% are confident that legalizing e-scooters could reduce congestion. As a result, Halfords is about to file a petition urging the government to change the law on privately owned e-scooters to legalize their use on public roads.
