A recently published study analyses the benefits of using electric scooters instead of their petrol counterparts in Vietnam and Japan. Electric scooters cut operating costs by more than 80% and dramatically lower CO₂ emissions.
According to myclimate Japan Managing Director Tomomichi Hattori, Vietnam has 25 million scooters. Going electric would not only greatly improve air quality, but would also have enormous economic benefits, as Japan has shown.
The study is the result of a workshop conducted by myclimate and various partners as part of the Japanese-Vietnamese carbon offset mechanism, a NAMA (national appropriate mitigation action) of these two countries.
