Aren't they all.   ;) Probably just another way to get your name in the news (free advertising) and get "brownie points" from the "Greens".   ::)

Spanish Correos mail has a fleet of new electric scooters to replace some of the old gas scooters you see all over the country.
I'll be there in a few weeks and hope to see them.

Scooters are one thing, but an electric bicycle pulling a large UPS steel box full of Amazon cardboard boxes full of more stuff is another.  ::)
