Electric cars are great. But road-ready electric scooters are even better.
These sleek bikes run on the same type of battery as a Tesla, have zero emissions, a top speed of 55 miles per hour, and can go about 51 miles per charge. There’s also an accompanying app that lets you customize features like acceleration and will help you find the nearest charging station.
A word of warning: the bikes make very little noise, so the manufacturer recommends using the included Bluetooth speakers so people hear you coming.
