Currently, the electric scooter sharing service niche is witnessing rapid development and is in a process of evolution. These services have been available in North America since 2012, but only in the last two years, e-scooters emerged in the domain. Such sharing services are an attractive option for shared mobility, as these are easy to operate, compact, and do not ask for any physical exertion. In addition to this, the size of the battery used in these scooters is lesser, compared to other electric vehicles, which makes e-scooters easier to charge.

Therefore, with the emergence of electric scooters in the sharing fleet, the North American electric scooters and motorcycles market is expected to witness significant growth.
