Apollo Pro Electric Scooter: Your Key Getting Around Without a Car

Apollo Pro Electric Scooter: Your Key Getting Around Without a Car

Ditching the car and getting an electric scooter instead might be the best move you can make for your wallet. When you factor in savings per year on maintenance, gas, repairs, and insurance, you might already come out ahead, and that’s not even to mention your investment in a car itself, and the depreciation that comes with trying to sell or trade one in. 

Non electrical cars are an expensive hassle and not environmentally friendly, and they pose a constant risk to cyclists and pedestrians. Since most short trips are under 3 miles, it seems like there’s little reason to own or drive a car full-time if you live in an urban area. 

Of course, there are downsides to being carless – from commuting in bad weather to picking up a bargain furniture purchase or big box store grocery run. The challenges of not owning a car can mostly be surmounted these days with rideshares and rental apps, and since most purchases are deliverable, driving to pick up large items is becoming less and less necessary. 

When you ride an electric scooter instead of driving, you soon realize how little you actually needed a car after all. 


Apollo Pro

The Apollo Pro: The Ultimate Car Alternative? 

If you’ve ridden a shared scooter, you know how convenient they can be, giving you freedom to explore routes you’d ordinarily never take, to skirt around traffic and to completely avoid one of the worsts part of any drive: parking. You also know the limitations of shared and budget model electric scooters — low speed, limited range, a bumpy ride and unreliable braking.

We could go on, but there’s no need: if you’re looking for a scooter to replace your car, you don’t want a low-powered, low-range budget model that can barely climb the hill next to your driveway. You need power, stability, and maximum reliability, all features you’ll find in one high-tech package with the powerful, dual-motor Apollo Pro 2023. 

Speed and Power

Yes, there are scooters that outperform the Pro when it comes to maximum speed. Electric scooters made by companies like Kaabo and NAMI, for example, can hit speeds of 50+ mph on the road, which is pretty cool except when you consider you’ll probably never want to ride that fast in the real world. In fact, in many states, this is prohibited. 

Ultra-high speeds on electric scooters are incredibly dangerous for anyone except trained professionals to handle. Riding at highway speeds can also get you pulled over and ticketed. Unless you plan on racing, high-speed scooters are overkill, and they won’t make your commute safer or more enjoyable. 

An electric scooter that replaces your car should keep up with car traffic, hitting speeds of 25 to 35 mph with ease, even on hills, and pushing it when necessary to pass or merge. When you go shopping for a commuter car, you look for reliability, safety, efficiency, technology, and style. 

When you look for an electric scooter to replace your car, you want the same features, while you can be sure that all Apollo Scooters offer top safety features, great design, and are reliable thanks to their IP66 rating, the Apollo Pro offers the best performance for any type of terrain. It's dual 4000W motors can’t be stopped or slowed down by any hill you’re likely to encounter. The Pro has enough power for every kind of riding situation. 

With its top speed of 44 mph, the Apollo Pro leaves most scooters in its dust, and It's perfect for those who crave an adrenaline rush. Whether you're commuting to work or simply exploring the city, this scooter will get your heart racing, but will also keep you safe with dual drum and regenerative braking that almost never needs maintenance or adjustment. 

Unleash Your Creative Potential with the Apollo Pro

The Apollo Pro is not just a means of transportation. It’s a statement of freedom, style, and innovation. If you're someone who values creativity and embraces unique design, this scooter is the perfect companion for you, a personal electric vehicle that lets you travel differently. 

Design is at the core of the Apollo Pro. Its sleek and futuristic appearance sets it apart from other scooters at a glance. The smooth, aerodynamic body enhances its overall aesthetics and improves its performance by reducing air resistance. Taking inspiration from auto design, the Apollo has considered every aspect of the Pro’s roadworthiness. 

The Pro’s ergonomic design ensures unparalleled comfort during rides. Wide handlebars set back at an aggressive rake angle allow for effortless control and maneuverability. From the comfortable grips to the spacious deck, every aspect of the Pro has been meticulously crafted for an intuitive rider experience. 

With its car-like ride quality, you’ll feel a sense of ultimate control and stability on the road with the Apollo Pro. Unlike smaller budget scooters, it has large, 12” self-healing pneumatic road tires with loads of grip for cornering, and its adjustable hydraulic suspension floats over potholes and speed bumps.

Tech-Forward Features for a Modern Device

For all their promises of innovation, most electric scooters sadly still use the same technology and design they used five or six years ago. The Apollo Pro, on the other hand, is packed with must-have features that enhance convenience and functionality. 

With embedded sensors and frequent firmware updates, the scooter’s tech just keeps evolving as it responds to real world feedback. And with its long-lasting battery and smart battery management system, you can enjoy extended rides without worrying about running out of power. The Pro’s connectivity options allow you to monitor your ride statistics and customize your riding settings through Apollo’s App.

Additionally, the Pro is equipped with a state-of-the-art GPS system. No more getting lost, or losing your scooter, in unfamiliar territory. You can also use your own phone as the scooter’s primary display, with the scooter’s proprietary, built-in Quad Lock mount. (The Pro also charges your phone wirelessly while riding, by the way). With just a few taps, you can effortlessly navigate through the city and discover new routes.

Better than a Car?

Worried you’ll miss your car? While the Apollo Pro’s performance features are apparent, there are several other features that make it especially suitable as a car replacement – or upgrade.

The Apollo Pro’s foldable design makes it portable and convenient for storage. Whether you're a digital nomad constantly on the move or someone who wants to free up valuable space in the garage, you’ll find this feature useful. The Pro is heavier than some scooters, but at only 95 lbs, it's also hundreds of pounds lighter than your car. 

Moreover, you’ll never, ever need to stop for gas. Charging the Pro’s Samsung battery takes 10-12 hours, and a full charge will last a full day’s riding.

Are Electric Scooters Legal? Are They Safe?

The short answer is, Yes, but the longer answer is, of course, more complicated. It depends on where you live. In some parts of the world, like Paris, electric scooters are completely banned. 

In the United States and Canada, legality varies by state, but scooters are legal on the roads in most cities. Check the laws of your local municipality and see this guide to find out the scooter laws where you live. 

Electric scooters are becoming increasingly visible to drivers, as are electric bikes and other small personal electric vehicles. The Apollo Pro is one of the safest electric scooters you can buy, with bright, 360-degree lighting, excellent traction and stability, and ultra-reliable braking. 

The Pro has also been named the most reliable electric scooter over $2,000, due to features like a self-diagnosing battery management system, bullet-proof braking system, and an IP66 water resistance rating that means the scooter can handle a rainstorm, although you’ll want to make sure, unlike a car, that you always store an electric scooter inside where it’s warm and dry. 

The important thing to remember when riding any scooter is that riders are most in danger when they fail to wear a helmet, to use bright lighting and turn signals, and to make sure that they’re otherwise visible to other drivers and riders and obeying the rules of the road. 

Why the Apollo Pro? It’s Easy

If you own a car, you can probably remember the last amount you spent on gas, parking, or repairs. You can remember wincing as you reluctantly pulled out your card, again. The constant expense of driving is a drag. There has to be a better way. 

You can buy an electric scooter like the Apollo Pro and keep your car, of course, driving only when you need to. But you might find that the longer you own your scooter, the less you’ll want to pay to keep two tons of glass and steel parked outside. 

The Apollo Pro has been called “the scooter of the future” for good reason: it’s got everything you need — from perfectly tuned performance to high-tech convenience — to make driving a thing of the past.
