The difference between “E-Roller” and “E-Scooter”

Well known from the streets are the good old e-scooters. But in fact, there are many differences between the sorts of them. On the one side there are actually “E-Scooters”. They are used by a handlebar, there is no seat and you use them by standing on it. On the contrary, you sit on the “E-Roller”. To make it more clearly you can compare it with a motor scooter, just with an electric motor. Regularly e-scooters can reach a speed about 20 km/h and can be used with an engine but also without. The scooter in fact reaches a speed about 45 km/h. Unless it is a self-balancing e-scooter, which may have 1,400 watts, the power may not exceed 500 watts. Furthermore, the e-scooter must be insured and, in any case, have certain safety features such as the brake. The same applies to the “E-Roller”, but unlike the e-scooter, helmets are compulsory and a driver's license is required. The scooter can be used on normal roads or cycle paths, but the “E-Roller” is only to be used on roads. However, if such a path is available, it should always be used. The minimum age for use is 14 years, whereas the “E-Roller” can be used from the age of 15 at the earliest.
Another interesting fact about e-scooters is that in the city of Hamburg, for example, it is no longer allowed to take e-scooters on the streetcar. As a result of fire incidents in London and Barcelona, the city made the decision not to accept this risk and to completely prohibit the transport in the Hamburg elevated streetcars.
