An Exceptional Year
The year 2020 has been an exceptional year for eMobility advancement (especially with eScooters). Most people find all kind of ways to look for the bad in this terrible COVID realization– may God bless the souls of all those who lost their lives in this battle. We have seen growth trends like never before in eMobility purchases across the board but none like the explosive recognition and acquisitions of regular ordinary people intrigued by some extraordinary alternative methods of getting around– we're talking eScooters here. Regular people have become enthusiastic about this growing market of technological evolution in the world of transportation. So much so, that our Federal Government has taken interest. President Elect, Joe Biden has put together a very robust plan for the American Transportation Industry that includes Micro Mobility (eScooters).
A lot of the credit for this booming eMobility expansion goes to the Consumers who buy and ride these eco friendly, cost efficient forms of transportation but there are other factors that contribute to this amazing expansion and adaptation as well. eMobility is the wave of the future. Yes, at first their were bad actors standing in the way of what stands to be a very effective eco mode of transportation.
on patrol. These are all good signs that move the needle toward capable, proper and practical legislative processes that will lead to sweeping and universal eMobility Laws, Codes and roadways designed for the unique operational and design needs of eMobility Transportation Vehicles (mainly eScooters). I am very optimistic that the surprising boom of Electric Scooters hitting the streets in a somewhat overnight type of evolution will shift practices to include certain mandates that force users to comply to common city code as defined for eScooter transportation on local roads, paths, trails and lanes. But like I said earlier, there are many factors that contribute and are drawing the blueprints that will define how this emerging Market and Society should look moving forward.
There are Manufacturers, Vendors, Vloggers and Advocates who work hard behind the scenes to insure this Industry survives and thrives. Today we will highlight four of the Best eScooter Vendors in the Industry who have been nominated by you– the Consumers who buy and ride these incredible machines we call eScooters. Let's take a look at this year's 2020 Best in Class eScooter "Vendors". These four Award Winning Recipients have consistently demonstrated the kind of Integrity, Character, Reputation, Product Knowledge, Reliability and Customer Service that raise the Industry bar far above Vendors who fail us consistently. There are several factors that determine the type of Vendors who should and will win this prestigious designation, and this year we recognize "four" deserving Honorees with The 2020 OhManDan OHvation Award– all, earning (5) breath taking "Ohs" for their dedicated commitment to Sales, Service, Shipping, Support, Skill, Recognition and Innovation.
