Electric Scooter

A company named Vectrix has a new Electric Scooter coming out:

The stats on the bike are pretty cool:

On sale in Europe late this year;
25% cheaper Cost of Ownership;
lower maintenance costs ;
zero spent on gas;
nickel metal hydride batteries cost fifty cents to recharge;
top speed > 60 miles an hour;
range is ~68 miles at 30 mph;
recharge time is ~two hours;

The rechargeable electric scooter will cost $10,000; Parker Hannifin is an investor in the firm. Granted, its not a $300 scooter, but its still pretty cool looking . . .

Thanks for picking up the story! I've just found out that I'll get a chance to test drive the Vectrix in May. I know that's a ways off, but check back.
