The Philippines Electric eBike & eScooter Lover’s ULTIMATE BUYER’S GUIDE
In the global landscape of electric vehicle (EV) adoption, the Philippines stands tall as a leader, spearheading the charge toward a sustainable future. With a growing awareness of environmental issues, such as Global Warming, and a concerted push towards green solutions, the Philippines has emerged as a frontrunner in the EV lifestyle, setting the pace for the rest of the world to follow.

However, amidst this nationwide surge towards electrification, Bulacan emerges as a beacon of innovation and sustainability, capturing the spotlight as a hotbed of interest in electric mobility. With its sprawling landscapes and green-conscious, and forward-thinking community initiatives, Bulacan has become the epicenter of a green revolution, where the allure of electric bikes and scooters shines brightly. As the region witnesses a spike in interest and investment in electric vehicles, it is clear that Bulacan is not just embracing the future of transportation—it’s shaping it.

Fun Facts:

“In The Philippines, GREEN is the NEW SEXY, and EV is the NEW SWAG! The e-scooter-sharing market in the Philippines is estimated to clock in at an annual growth rate of 12.08% between 2024 and 2028, projecting a market volume of $3.82 million (USD) in about 5 years. In a world where every decision counts towards a greener tomorrow, Bulacan stands as a shining example of how local communities can lead the charge towards a cleaner, green-conscious, and more sustainable future.”

-Kareem Jackson, PH MAG US Executive Publisher & Producer, Statista Market Insights

Picture this: a bustling summertime scene in beautiful Bulacan, where hip Gen X, Gen Z, and Millennial students ditch the old school transport, and The Hot Boys glide through the streets with an electric swagger.

Yep, you heard it right – the e-swag is in full effect, and Bulacan is loving every minute of it. With “safety” in electric vehicles (EVs) taking center stage, thanks to no license requirements or the need for helmets in many cases, cruising to school, hitting the store, going on a date, or handling local deliveries and pick-ups has never been cooler.

But it’s not just the individuals making the switch – local businesses are hopping on the EV train too. Instead of hailing a tricycle driver hopping in the back of a jeep, or even jumping in their own gas-guzzling cars, savvy local entrepreneurs and business owners are opting for their
EVs for short errands, adding a touch of eco-friendly flair to their operations


Electric Scooter vs. Electric Bike: Which Ride Reigns Supreme?

When it comes to zipping through the streets of Bulacan, you might find yourself torn between two electrifying options: the electric scooter or the electric bike. To help you navigate the maze of choices, we’ve broken down the key differences between these two stylish rides.
– Electric bikes boast a range of 22 to 50 miles (35 to 80 kilometers), making them ideal for longer jaunts around town.
– Traditional e-scooters typically clock in between 6 to 25 miles (9 to 40 kilometers) but fear not – newer models like The LIGHTSPEED Collection are pushing boundaries with a range of up to 45 kilometers, perfect for zipping through city streets.
– Electric bikes cruise at an average speed of 20 miles per hour (32 kilometers per hour), while e-scooters glide along at around 16 miles per hour (26 kilometers per hour).
– However, don’t let those numbers fool you – both rides have speed limits, with e-bikes capped at 20 mph (miles per hour in the US), around 32 kph, and 15.5 miles per hour in Europe.
– In Bulacan, electric scooters take the crown for convenience, with no license required due to their slower speed – perfect for quick errands without the hassle.
– Electric bikes come with price tags ranging from P20,000 (around $450) to as much as P102,000 (around $1,750), with premium models soaring up to P512,000 ($9,500ish).
– On the flip side, e-scooters (the standing style) offer an affordable entry point, starting from just P15,000 ($300 or so), providing a reliable and cost-effective alternative for the budget-conscious rider.

So, whether you’re cruising through the streets of Metro Manila, or zipping around Bulacan in style, making quick runs around town, the choice between an electric scooter and an electric bike ultimately comes down to your personal style, needs, and budget.
