What’s great about this movement is that even manufacturers of exotic supercars are embracing the concept. Those looking for an emission-free ride for their daily urban commute should check out the Scrooser.
This two-wheeler is a cool mode of transportation that uses an efficient 500W motor to ferry you around town. To set your expectations correctly the range it gets from a full charge is not for the long-haul. As long as your destination is well within its 34-mile limitation, it should be smooth sailing throughout the trip. Thanks to its low center of gravity along with the wide tires, the Scrooser can stay upright on a flat surface. If you want to burn some calories along the way, just stand up and push off like you would a skateboard.
The motor draws power from a removable 36V 20,000 mAh battery that fully charges in just four hours. Users can select from four driving modes: Comfort, Sport, Hand, and Eco. Zip around in style with speeds up to 15.5 mph. The rear wheel uses a mechanical disc brake, while the front is equipped with a hydraulic unit. To keep the Scrooser looking slim, the batteries are hidden under the footboard.
