Just Eat launches electric delivery scooter



Just Eat has unveiled an electric scooter as part of its continued commitment to tackling carbon emissions across the UK.


Manufactured by Eskuta, the vehicle has a top speed of 30mph and a range of up to 60 miles, enabling takeaways to expand their delivery radius and reach even more customers without the need for petrol powered mopeds or cars.

It follows the launch in April of an eco-friendly electric bike which reaches a top speed of 15 mph and has a range of 50 miles. To date, over 200 have been bought by takeaways. 

Costing between £595 and £1,195, a significant reduction compared to the market price of £1,550, the electric scooters cost 10p to charge and, according to independent research, restaurants can save approximately £743 per year compared to a petrol moped. The scooters ride almost silently, reducing noise pollution and allowing businesses to use them without impacting local communities.

Robin Clark, business partnerships director at Just Eat, said: “We’re committed to driving eco-friendly behaviour across our restaurant partner network. We believe the partnership we have with Eskuta is an important step in tackling carbon emissions from takeaway food delivery, and with over 200 of the first model already sold, it’s great to see initial positive results. We’re delighted to have unveiled the latest model and look forward to continuing our work to support sustainable innovations across the industry.”

Last year, approximately 100 million miles were covered by delivery drivers in the Just Eat network.
