I will kick this thread of with my own request. I am planning to buy an e-scooter. Can someone who is using an e-scooter give their overall experience? My preference would be e-scooter with portable batteries that I can just take out and bring to my home for charging as I live in an apartment complex that does not have an E-Charging setup yet.

Nexon EV is best VFM EV you can buy . With a real life range of ~220 , its a great car to drive & vastly cheaper to run & maintain than any ICE vehicle .

Hello friends,
Having trouble with wife deciding on which scooter to buy next.

Wife likes heavy body, agressive styling and is leaning towards Jupiter or Ntorq. I am trying to push in a electric vehicle.

Any suggestions?

Dude! You're spewing such stinking BS, that I had to create an account to call you out!
You're living in a world that's a decade old (original Nissan Leaf era!). Currently there's no EV in the market that's 'air-cooled'....they all have liquid-cooling systems that cools both the battery-pack and the motors.
EVs are more effective in higher altitude areas as they are not dependent on the atmospheric pressure, temperature or density. On the other hand, Internal Combustion engines can be severely encumbered by low atmospheric density as combustion in the cylinder expects a certain amount of oxygen...which won't be present! Either ICE vehicles operate sub-optimally or special engines need to be developed for those areas.
Who are you? Dalal of EV here?

I have appended in my later post that what Indian Army should currently require and that is not EV.

Iam not here saying ICE are better in higher altitude. Don't give a damn if you created an account to call me out. Members like you come and go here.

You can make your case for ICE/Hybrid vehicles based on charging options etc. But to REPEATEDLY claim that motors & batteries will work sub-optimally at high altitudes due to COOLING DEFICIENCIES is utter BULLSHIT!
I might 'come and go' on this site, & you may linger forever.....neither of those facts can make your turd of a post taste like gulab jamoon!
Actually, the range of the EV cars drops significantly in Colder climate.

"South Korea's antitrust regulator said it would impose a 2.85 billion won ($2.2 million) fine on Tesla Inc for failing to tell its customers about the shorter driving range of its electric vehicles (EVs) in low temperatures. "

range of ev is highly exaggerated just like that of air defence system, real world range is at least 30% less this is true for all EVs.

Not that point even the real range will drop significantly in colder climate. Cold does not favor the batteries and the motors.

In very hotter climate also they are dangerous as battery may cath fire due to overheating.
hybrid vehicle seems to be better choice for now.
Ev should me made mandatory for government officials instead

Sorry but hybrids are better in that kind of climate and terrain. Jimih is right. Liquid cooling may work up to a fashion. But liquid cooling does need a medium to radiate heat to retain its cooling capabilities. On a long term basis, hybrids work better for now.

Almost all EV cars right now come with some sort of liquid colling which will manage them well in hot climate.
