While we are still impatiently waiting to see the first flying taxis land in Paris (they are hoped for the 2024 Olympics), ecology and urban mobility are at the heart of debates and political issues. Headliners include bicycles, scooters and amazing electric wheels like the French Gyroroue. If you’re going to change the way you move, the sales are here to help.
While mentalities are slowly but surely changing, the ecological transition is truly underway, at least in the big cities. And if Paris has been waging war on cars for years now with closed roads, a speed limit of 30 km/h in almost the entire city now, increasingly rare parking spaces and increasingly fines deterrents, 2022 should be the year when thermal two-wheelers (motorcycles and scooters) will be targeted in turn.
Benefiting until then from a certain leniency regarding traffic and parking, two-wheelers will have to, from September 2022, pay for parking with an hourly rate or a subscription system, depending on whether you live in Paris or its suburb. The objective is clear, to dissuade people from using thermal vehicles in large cities and to promote clean means of mobility such as bicycles or scooters.
Be aware that in addition most cities and regions offer a refund of up to 50% or 500 euros on the purchase of a non-polluting device. Remember to inquire at the Town Hall or on the website of the regional council of your region.

An electric scooter for really cheap thanks to the 2022 winter sales
We’re off to a strong start with what is probably the best promotion of the start of the 2022 winter sales on urban mobility. As we know, Cdiscount is used to displaying crossed-out prices that are a little too high compared to normal product prices. Here, the merchant tells us that the Windgoo M12 went from nearly €900 to just €259.
In reality, it was possible to find this model quite well below 900€ even outside of any promo period. That being said, Cdiscount’s offer remains exceptional. To see a reliable, solid, folding model, with a nice LED screen, a range of 15 to 18 km (depending on the weight to be carried and the speed) and an empty weight of 16 kg at such a low price, is enough crazy. It is not uncommon to see electric scooters with similar characteristics offered at twice the price. Nice deal!

If there was only one reference model to know, this is it. This best seller is the flagship of Xiaomi, the Chinese giant which has established itself as a leader in the electric scooter market. And we understand why, the Pro 2 has everything you need where you need it. A featherweight of 14.2 kg, a sublime autonomy of 45 km, a super practical small LED screen, a sober and classy design, a padlock included and a great value for money… especially on sale.
Usually displayed at around 550 euros, the Pro 2 is currently offered at 519€ on Rue du Commerce! It’s not the best price ever seen on this product, but, given the current period, it’s still a great deal for this great classic.
If you are interested, you have also found a stronger promotion on the AMG edition of the Xiaomi Mi Pro 2. In terms of characteristics, it is more or less the same as for the classic Pro 2, but there is a collector aspect with this model created in partnership with Mercedes (yes, you can say that you drive a Mercedes on an electric scooter). Launched at €799.99, this Xiaomi Mi Pro 2 goes to €549.99 at Darty during the sales. Nice reduction which brings the price of the collector’s model down to that of the basic model!

A faster and sportier electric scooter? It exists at a knockdown price for the sales!
Still at Darty, we came across the best promotions on the Speedwat Mini 4 Pro from Minimotors during our research. Even if French law obliges manufacturers of electric scooters to limit their models to 25 km/h on public roads, nothing prohibits picking up speed on private roads! Here you can go up to 40 km/h, so don’t forget your helmet!
With its powerful 500 Watt motor, this model will have no trouble overcoming big hills and propelling you quickly as soon as the light turns green. Nice grip, real impression of solidity, supports up to 120 kg of weight without problem, good autonomy of 40 km, 8 inch wheels… we can only salute this pretty model.
Given the characteristics, the price is necessarily higher than that of a Mi Pro 2, but, thanks to the winter sales, there is a way to get a good deal. Usually, we see the Mini 4 Pro at around €850. Right now, Darty is dropping the price to €699.99! Really not bad.

This great Peugeot electric bike is at a reduced price for the sales!
All city dwellers in big cities have known this since the various town halls of metropolitan areas have set up electric bike rental services: a bike that rolls almost by itself is great, especially when you live on a hill.
The thing is that a good quality electric bike is often very expensive. Even more annoying: we very rarely see really low prices on this kind of product. But hey, better that than nothing at all! We prefer to recommend a solid and reputable model rather than a lower price for a less reliable product.
At the moment, the Vae Trekking electric bike signed Peugeot is losing €100, again at Darty, which seems to be offering the best promotions for these sales on urban mobility: €1,799 instead of €1,899. Autonomy of 110 km/h, 8 speeds, supports up to 120 kg… in short, it’s solid.

Even Gyroroues are at a good price for the winter sales
Our passion for high tech cannot help but express itself: here is a connected unicycle with customizable LED lights. The model has 2 bluetooth speakers: with the dedicated application you can not only program the voice warning system, but also unlock your device (to go from 25 km/h on public roads to 40 km/h on a private road) and check its battery.
In terms of autonomy, this single wheel from Inmotion has a 960 Wh lithium-ion battery, enough to last about 75 km for a charging time of about 8 hours. It’s quite monstrous. Stable, easily transportable, solid, powerful and enduring, it has everything going for it. Even if taming a unicycle requires training, when you start to understand the trick, the effect on the road becomes exhilarating.
As with the electric bike, the price necessarily goes hand in hand with the quality of the product. The Inmotion V10F gyroroue is usually offered at 1349€. During the sales, Darty will save you €100 and lower the price to €1249. An investment that is worth it in the long term!
