Where are all the electric scooters in Japan?

My local scooter shop won’t take in electric bicycles for repair or recycling and someone dumped one outside his shop which is going rusty-it sort of sums up the mindset here though.....

J gov should be promoting e-bicycles and e-motorbikes but instead are bent on squashing them because they dent profits of gasoline producers and vehicle makers

Battery recycling is a factor when considering an eScooter... look at those in China - they've had eScooters for years - but battery powering them is so un-environmentally friendly they're not sold here.

Answer to mmwkdw.

What´s the difference enviromentally betwen electric cycles, eScooters and electrical motorcycles.

Electrifying of cars for example from fossil fuels do go from in Sweden 30 TWh fossil fuel to 10 TWh electric consumption. That means you spare 2/3 of the energy demand but increase the electric demand ut at the same time the reaction of exhaust will give fewer amount of demens illness.

With his silent electric motorcycle, other users of Kuala Lumpur's congested roads wrongfully assume the 29-year-old has turned off his engine or fallen asleep at the wheel.

Rubbish.  As if they can hear that his scooter makes almost no noise in the hubbub of KL traffic
