Electric Scooters Can Be Faster Way to Get Off Oil
Until charging stations dot the country, electric scooters make more sense than electric cars. Here’s why – and a look at what might be one of the most unique and practical models yet.
Last week I was at Dell’s Annual Analyst Conference, but the product at the event I most wanted wasn’t a desktop, laptop, a tablet or even a smartphone. It was a scooter. It turns out that Dell had actually helped create Current Motor’s electric Super Scooter.
What makes this particular scooter unique is that it both uses a hub motor, and was designed to use vehicle wraps instead of paint. That last point is something that I think the car industry will eventually adapt as well. Wraps have a number of advantages over paint, yet outside of advertising, you rarely see them used. Current Motors is the first manufacturer I’ve seen use this capability.
