Check out Scoot, a stylish electro scooter, designed by GRO design. It’s classified as a bike, so theoretically you won’t need a helmet. (Not smart, if you ask me.) It takes you about 40-50km on its lithium battery. And it’s cheap to run, only 50 cents for 50km!
Oh, I’d like to take it for a testride…. Unfortunately it’s not in production. Currently being exhibited at the Milan design week 2006.
