The MUVe three-wheeled, stand-and-ride electric scooter

If you need to cut across town, sliding behind the wheel of your car is not always the most practical or quickest way to get from train station to office, office to gym, or gym to juice bar. While public transport serves most inner cities well, the thought of zipping quietly and effortlessly through the thronging masses is one that has great appeal. If you can just collapse your vehicle down to a fraction of its size at the end of your journey, all the better. Such is the case with a soon-to-be-released three-wheeled, stand-and-ride electric scooter named MUVe, which transforms into a suitcase-sized trolley between rides.  Read More

The Zoomer X California Style is designed by Honda's R&D in Thailand to 'combine the Calif...

The importance of local culture in shaping a marketplace was never more conspicuous to this Western mind than at the Bangkok Motor Show when Honda showed two concept bikes that are so far from the normality of Western markets that they will challenge your thinking as they did mine. The highlights of Honda Thailand's massive exhibition were a Chopper-styled scooter and a Grand Prix Racer-styled mini-bike meant for the road.  Read More

What do you do if you’re a businessman who needs to quickly get from one meeting to another, via the taxi-thwarting congested roads of a “megacity”? You could try a scooter, but what if it’s raining? That’s where the rickshaw-like VOI electric scooter prototype enters the picture. It protects the passenger in an enclosed front compartment, while the driver sits exposed to the elements in the back.  Read More

The Zero Emission Individual Transport Eco electric scooter

Though the Zeit Eco is not the first box-frame-on-wheels e-scooter we've covered, its creators say that this compact last mile transport vehicle has its own unique identity. The hub motor offers an electronically limited top speed of 15 mph (24 km/h), while the standard battery pack should be good for 16 to 25 miles (25 - 40 km) per charge, depending on riding style and road conditions. Its built-in "glove compartment" is big enough to keep a tablet safe from harm during transit, the included handlebar charging port will even help keep mobile device batteries topped up, and the onboard audio system will help keep you entertained while you zip from A to B.  Read More

The JumpX can vault over obstacles

Remember a few years ago when Razor scooters were the thing every kid wanted to have? While the trend may have died in the mainstream, there are still dedicated scooter riders out there, and a quick trip to any skatepark will likely yield just as many scooter riders as skateboarders. A company called Fuzion Scooters is looking to mix things up a bit by adding a little bit of pogo stick action to the JumpX scooter.  Read More

The Cycon Circleboard puts a new spin on scooter design

In designing a new scooter, Swiss company Cycon looked to a new geometrical form. Instead of basing the scooter on hard lines and angles, they made it circular. What follows is a scooter that promises to flow as smoothly standing still as it does while riding.  Read More

The Scuddy is made in Germany

The Segway never actually changed the way cities are built – or anything else for that matter – but to a certain segment of commuter, a small, light, zero-emissions mode of transportation remains quite attractive. The Scuddy is a German-built electric scooter that fits the bill. It folds up for easy transport, allows riders to sit or stand, and provides an attractive alternative to cars, bikes and motorcycles ... and Segways.  Read More

SSIKE adds to the growing list of last-mile transport options

Like a cross between a genetically flawed Segway and a YikeBike, the Spanish-designed SSIKE e-Scooter looks to be more inner-city toy than serious people mover. However, aesthetic prowess aside, its reasonably zippy top speed, light weight and portable design could make it a viable addition to the growing list of last-mile transport options out there.  Read More

The MOVEO folding electric scooter

When you hear the term “folding electric scooter,” you likely think of a stand-up scooter along the lines of the Zümaround or the MyWay Compact. At best, you might picture something with a bicycle-style saddle and seatpost, such as the Voltitude. MOVEO, however, features a full traditional seat that’s mounted directly on the chassis. Although the scooter isn’t in production yet, it hopefully will be by next year.  Read More

Currently in development in Spain, the Xkuty is a remarkably lightweight electric scooter ...

Weighing in as it does at a mere 45 kg (99 lb), it's tempting to categorize the Xkuty as an electric bicycle. There's a small problem with doing so, though. It doesn't have any pedals. Needless to say, its designers from Spain bill this as a feature (thanks to the lack of chain), though it does leave little room for debate: the Xkuty is a scooter, albeit a remarkably lightweight one.  Read More
