A Review on Mearth GTS MAX
In John’s recent reviews, John published a 25 minute Youtube review on his honest (as always, and as expected) take on the Mearth GTS MAX.
The Mearth GTS MAX is a fast electric scooter, it does not need fuel to run the streets. It is a superior, high-performance dual-motor electric scooter that offers an unbeatable travel experience for its rider because of its off-road capabilities. From rough terrains to long-distance travels, the Mearth GTS MAX exceeds expectations and offers unlimited possibilities. It is made from quality materials and has passed through the most stringent and highest industry standard. It really is a powerful technological design, co-engineered by Mearth and LG, the Mearth GTS MAX boasts of the longest range capability among top-line brands. It can cruise at a max speed of 50-70kph with a load of up to 150kg. It is also an electric scooter that matches the powerful desire for the great outdoors. Designed for power, speed, and all-terrain capability, the GTS MAX is sturdy and has a powerful long-lasting battery.
The power of the Mearth GTS MAX and its benefits to mankind was clear as day to John, which is why in his Youtube video, he reiterated, “The last thing humanity really needs is a further infestation of three-ton electric vehicles (EV) and even more disingenuous brainwashing about how to save the planet – but if you want to make a difference to your Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and the household budget and things of that nature [like] congestion and air quality then dude, I think we found a real winner – the Mearth GTS MAX… This cheap e-scooter is affordable, effective and easy to implement. They cut CO2, they pay for themselves fast and they ease congestion by getting you out of gridlock and they can be used safely in public.”
John continues, “What we desperately need in fact is a fleet of lightweight EV options suitable for short trips so I’d suggest it would be impossibly excellent if an Australian company could today sell you a really small EV with a tiny footprint in every sense which pays for itself fast and which makes a real dent in your transport CO2 contribution. Would it not also be grand if such a conveyance was fun while it got you out of the congestion and out of peak hour gridlock?
John challenges his viewers with a honest-to-goodness question, “What if I told you there’s an EV that you could buy today for well under $3,000 AUD which could cut your total vehicular emissions by 25% and pay for itself inside 8 months – plus you don’t have to give up the car you already own and possibly even love. Would that be of interest to you?”
John was surely referring to the Mearth GTS MAX. He further expounds on the benefits of this excellent e-scooter. Eco-friendly, etc.
“But if you commute in a combustion car,” John warns, “It could cost you $12 a day for parking –and that’s the early bird deal– in total that’s $60 a week just to park your car and you don’t really get anything for it except your car is kind of there at the end of the day. Afterward, you can take your car, drive off and suffer in gridlock all the way home.”
John explains further with technicalities “15 km per day is 75 km/h a week and this is the least efficient driving that an internal combustion car can do. It’ll probably be 20 liters per 100 km/h if you’re driving a Bogan special. 15 liters of fuel a week in total is $30, just so you can front up to work and get rimmed out by the boss. Add the $60 a week just to park, you’ll end up with $90 in total expenses. Or you can buy a Mearth GTS Max for $2600 and save $90 a week.
The payback period there to breakeven is 29 weeks and after that it’s all savings, saving $90 a week! Isn’t this phenomenal? Imagine knocking on the boss’s office and asking him for a pay raise of $90? This is really a way of getting an extra $90 a week in the hand in about eight months time. This really adds up for some people.”
John goes on, but now emphasizes the environmental benefits. “There’s a lot to see along the way when riding an electric scooter and seeing nature and how marvelous it is… we should care about it. If you drive the average 1500 km/h every year, the ballpark is about 3600/year if you use 48 weeks/year because you’ve got four weeks of holidays or something. There’s a 24% reduction in the CO2 emitted otherwise by driving an e-scooter. Then there’s 720 liters of fuel that you don’t pay for or burn which is a huge plus for national energy security. Well quite frankly it’s not a huge plus if just one person does it and it’s only you who cares – but if a million people do it too, that’s 720 million liters of fuel – which is nearly a billion liters! That would be roughly 3.5% if it’s 720 liters for everyone, that’s still 3.5% reduction in our dependency on foreign oil. That’s massive for our national energy security and it’s also nearly 1700 kilos, like 1.7 tons of CO2 that you just don’t emit.”
John presses, “E-scooters have been around for several years now and they are clearly part of the future transport mix. The other states and territories are even talking in that context, about how we deal with e-scooters and how we do it safely and you know everyone else is collaborating. But New South Wales remains too busy to deal with ‘trivialities’ like cleaning the air in our cities and easing congestion, etc.
Anyway, today, I’m going to leave you with this: e-scooters, even manifestly excessive ones, like the Mearth GTS MAX, are affordable, effective and easy to implement. This powerful e-scooter cuts CO2 and it pays for itself fast! It eases congestion by getting you out of gridlock and they can be used safely in public!”
