Do you want the best of both worlds - to save cash by dodging the cost of petrol, and to be more environmentally friendly by reducing emissions? The Xufeng XF50QDT-2 helps you to do both!

This eco-friendly, 100% electric scooter is no slouch when it comes to performance. The 1500 watt motor delivers ample torque to fulfill even the most demanding drivers' need to zip in and out of traffic. You can drive as fast as 30mph (50km/h) and as far as 40 miles, all with no noise, no exhaust fumes and no need to pay for petrol! Plus, electric scooters are exempt from vehicle tax (though you will still need a 'free' tax disc yearly) and congestion charges. And, many cities reward eco-friendly vehicle owners with free parking. This truly is an all around good alternative to driving or public transport!

Charging is easy and convenient, simply plug the included charger into any mains socket. It takes from 4 hours (for a basic charge) to 8 hours (for a full charge) and can cost less than 10p per charge. There are a number of park & charge facilities already available throughout the country (you can find a list by visiting the Useful Links" section of the Product Home page) and more popping up every day. Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, so finding a place to charge can only get easier over time.

Designed with comfort and ease of use in mind, this sporty blue & white scooter features an easy-to-read instrument panel, a foot operated kick-stand, a mounting plate for an optional top box, and comfortable padded seat. The seat lifts to reveal a storage area for your charger and the included tool kit while still leaving some space for a few knick knacks. The tool kit includes a reversible screw driver (consisting of a handle and a metal shaft with two different types of screw driver heads on each end), a set of four open-ended spanners (or wrenches) and two Hex keys (or Allen keys) in a zippered carrying pouch.

Good deal if in london but elsewhere wasn't it highlighted that there were FAR too few charging points. Alas, Here in the country we will not see the benifit of electric vehicles for a long time.

If you are considering buying one, check there are recharge facilities near you before purchasing. Most of the charge facilities are likely to be in London. Otherwise, it halves the maximum distance you can travel if you can only charge from home.
#3
1500 watts is just over 2 BHP which is about the same as an average 50cc scooter so it's not going to be fast and if you weigh more than a skinny 16 year old then you are going to struggle getting up hills.

One thing I would like to know is how long the batteries last? You could find that they only last a year or 2 and the cost of replacements is nearly the cost of a new scooter.
#4
Ideal for travelling back & forth to work though, you could just charge it at home.
#5
not if you live in a block of flats, or many houses without driveways or garages. The only way I could do it would be to run the lead through my letter box or window!

Great, a moped that's even easier to hit, because not only will the rider nip in and out of traffic without any regard for other road users or pedestrians, now you won't even be able to avoid them, as you won't be able to hear them coming...:roll:

'can cost less than 10p per charge'....maybe if you only want to get to the end of the street and back.

Then there's cold weather....battery powered vehicles do really well in cold weather...NOT.

Yet another fake green machine I'm afraid:

Electricity is generated in.....oh yeah, a power station - the generation and supply of electricity is less efficient than an internal cumbustion engine in terms of overall energy losses in the supply chain.

This is no better for the environment than a petrol moped, unless you take into account that you can't actually go very far until you run out of battery power.

As much of a green con as a Toyota Pious.

the environmental damage caused producing the batterys is shocking and my 125 vespa can do 150 - 200 miles on £7 and the emisions are miniscule so thanks but no thanks

Well said. Get a 5.0i V8 and enjoy it, for a while. Could do with seeing some of this alleged "Global Warming". It's bloody cold today.

would also be advisable not to try going uphill as climbimg is stated as 15%, in fact would probably struggle with sleeping policemen.

well the law is bikes can overtake in traffic and in highway code you are supposed to check blind spots and look for bikes.


you have never riden a moterbike that much is obvious , we all know what drivers are supossed to do but in reality is doesn't happen

This eco-friendly, 100% electric scooter

Up to 40 miles for 10p? Don't most 50-125cc bikes do well over 100mpg so really you are only going to save 50% on fuel.

Plus as we all know with batteries, every charge is slightly less than the last charge.

Of course I could be totally wrong as I don't have a bike nor an electric car (mine is a 3.4L Porker).

40 miles for 10p is 400 miles for a quid. A lot more than a 50% saving.

THE TITLE

scooter, 30mph, road legal, electric, no petrol required, free tax discs for life, congestion charge free, upto 40 miles on 1 charge, noise free


ok i'll be really petty then in your titlle it says noise free this is an environmental issue its known as noise pollution
#16
Better off with a 4 stroke petrol (50cc), they do loads to gallon, quiet, low CO2 and have twice the bhp,

Agree with withabix. I drove the prius 400 miles, the economy was no where near as good as diesel. They are just for the green band wagon.

I think we all need to remember that this is a deals forum, not a review site. Is this a good price for this particular product? Yes or No.

It's perfectly legitimate to comment about the nature of the deal as well as the price otherwise HUKD would just be a price comparative site, which would be rather tedious.

At £900 of course it isn't a good deal because if this is about cost-effective transport then there's a lot more to the equation than 10p for a 40 mile range.

Unless you live right in the centre of a city this is really not a practical, cost-effective means of transport and if you run out of "juice" you're utterly fecked - no walk to a garage to get a jerrycan of petrol with this.

In any event, if you live in a city, most journeys will be so short that you'd be better off buying a push bike and getting fit into the bargain:p

There's no congestion charge in Coventry :p
I'd pay £210 a year for a BIG V8.:-D
I park for free anyway :w00t:
What about my Shell points then if I rarely go to petrol stn :thinking:

Insurance............................................?

I was looking into one of these 6 months ago when it was less chilly but decided against it. I did bookmark this site:

http://www.ukecoscooters.co.uk/product.php?productid=1&cat=0&page=1&featured

Don't think these are imported but a similar price and maybe a better after sales service.
#23
BTW, they are classed as a 50cc scooter so insurance would be the same.
#24
Did nobody else notice the "climbing - 15 degrees" what do you do if you live at the top of a hill, push it the rest of the way home???

Oh yes they did! Check the website.


No they haven't. I've been looking at a few things for a while now on their website, this phone in particular http://www.expansys.com/p.aspx?i=161302 it's the same price it has been for months.

Oh sorry, I forgot that moped riders don't have to comply with any part of the Highway Code or the Road Traffic Act. Please forgive me.
#27
You'd be better off buying a electrically assisted bicycle. No crash helmet, licence, numberplate, tax disk or insurance required and when it runs out of power you can always start pedalling.

generation and supply less efficient than car you got to be joking what they got at power station loads of car engines powering it?? dont think so lol. Transmission loses are not a very big in electricty supply. also Toyota Prius is powerd by petrol engine not electric vehical like this moped

...do i need another driving licence for this baby?

These things cost as little as £200 in China. for basic models in Wal-Mart, going up to about £300. They are absolutely everywhere, there are loads in the big cities, flying around very silently. I've seen some in pretty bad condition, but still seemed to run no problem which indicates that they may actually be decent quality and last a while. I've seen loads of people carrying another person on the back as well, and the scooter seemed to be moving no problem at all... I don't know about this price....seems like a steep hike. This comes from China anyway...

40 miles for 10p is 400 miles for a quid. A lot more than a 50% saving.


therefore approx 2000 miles per five quid of electricity!.. equive 1 gallon of fuel cost! adverage 100mpg scooter .. does that work out 20x saving! 2000%!!!
