Electric scooter: Does it hold worldwide popularity?

09/30/2019

The regulation barriers are not compromised to get silent anyhow. Despite such a scenario, the electric scooter manufacturing companies are heading forward to cover a large market share over the globe. For instance, Lime came up with an announcement regarding its incoming into the capital of Spain. It is not taking any steps backs and moves forward for launching several electric scooter models in Madrid earlier in the week. Just a week before Lime's launch, Bird (another competitor) shows up a great launch in Paris. Bird also showcases the intention to spread its electric scooter models in Tel Aviv.

Lime's strategy for launching electric scooters

Looking at the international launch of Bird, there is no doubt that Lime would take any step back from a grand success. Lime is involved in operating the electric scooters and bikes outside the United States for capturing a good market share. During the last December, Lime launched electric bikes in Europe. In June, Lime came up with another launch in Paris. Recently, it has been revealed that Lime has achieved $335 million success and joined hands with Uber for transportation.

Prevailing competitors for electric vehicles

All over the nation, the manufacturers of adult electric scooters are not resting. All the competitors such as Lime, Bird, Goat, Skip, and Spin are securing grand success with the deployment of electric scooters in almost 33 cities. When standing outside the United States, all the competitors have managed to launch these electric scooters only in 3 cities.

Bird and Lime: Do they hold grand success from other competitors?

In the field of manufacturing electric scooters, two famed figures are always mentioned- Bird and Lime. Though, it doesn't mean that only these two companies exist. Rather, these companies have attained good fame with the achievement of maximum capital as compared with other competitors. Lime has defeated all its competing companies by raising $467 million. On the other hand, Bird is also running at a good speed in the face by securing $415 million. Both Lime and Bird have secured an international market with electric scooters or bikes.

Prevailing landscape in the United States for scooters

No doubt, the United States landscape for competition depicts a completely distinct story. In the United States, California is capturing good popularity of the electric scooters. With such joy, Texas is also not missed. Apart from them, other states are also enjoying an electric scooter rise such as North Carolina, Washington D.C., and so on.

Regulations framed for the companies

Without any surprise, the regulations keep on revolving around e-scooter manufacturing companies as a major issue for them.

The MTA (Municipal Transportation Agency) in San Francisco is looking deeply to review the "permit applications" received from 12 services (all-electric scooter dealers).

Since Spin, Lime, and Bird got involved in deploying the electric scooters manufactured by them across all over the city without granting any legal permission during March, it resulted in the upcoming of the permit process. San Francisco streets are covered up with the electric scooters presently.

During the last month, Bird got ready to conduct another launch in the region of Boston. Though, the regulatory authorities interrupted in the process, giving a clear warning that the scooters will be confiscated if any authority finds it.
