Green Machine Round LogoGreen Machines logo

Green Machines is an Irish company that sells & distributes alternative energy vechicles.

They have a huge range of eco-friendly modes of transport, from mini-scooters & mopeds to electric cars & public service vehicles.

All of their products have electric motors, which can have different charge-up times depending on the vechicle size.

We especially love the E-Scooter, a zippy little City Moped.
Green Machine E-Scooter

This retro-styled beauty has a 48V engine & will take about 4 hours to charge up but you will get about 40km per charge!

It comes in ooh so pretty colours of blue/white, purple/white or all black.

Now obviously, it’s better if your electricity comes from an alternative energy source too such as Airtricity.

The purple E-scooter is definitely going on our wish list, sigh sigh!
