Gas prices are on a record high, but you don't need to invest in a pricey new electric car to save money on gas in the long run. There are a ton of electric bikes, electric scooters and even some electric skateboards that will get you to work, home and beyond.
Depending on your budget and preferences, a lot of models range from a few hundred dollars, while all-terrain e-bikes and scooters can cost you up to a few thousand dollars (but they're a blessing if you have a lot of hills to navigate on your commute). Thanks to the electric motors, you won't feel exhausted when you're pedaling to the grocery store. With sales on select Amazon electric scooters and e-bikes, making the switch to a more eco-friendly vehicle is even easier.
Amazon isn't the only retailer with deals on e-bikes. Amalfi Bikes has created a special promo code just for ET readers. If you use promo code ET20 when you check out, you can get 20% off your purchase.
