- [Reacher] Hello to everyone old and new,
it's Reacher here and I'm ringing in 2018
with 15 electric scooters and smart mopeds.
this first entry comes from a collaboration
between Ford Motor Company and OjO Electric
to produce scooters visually inspired by Ford vehicles
while incorporating OjO's innovative technology and design.
An aluminum frame integrated with
automotive grade plastic fairings,
provide the strength and beauty to this wing-shaped ride.
The treaded, non-slip deck and removable seat
allow for either sitting or standing while riding
and can hold a maximum weight of 300 pounds.
The OjO is driven by a 500 watt,
rear wheel hub electric motor
that has a top speed of 20 miles per hour
and a range of about 25 miles per charge.
The projected cost is less than $2,000 dollars
with a release data of January 2018.
the design team's goal with the Nito NES
was to break through the daily grind
and give freedom to those caught up
in the chaos of city life.
The body is reminiscent of day's gone by
in every aspect of its design.
The angled deck is crafted from marine plywood
that integrates seamlessly into the molded framework.
The seat is mounted on a tubular steel structure
and can support two people comfortably.
The NES runs on a four kilowatt engine
and can reach a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour.
The battery will last for about 50 miles
before needing a recharge
which only requires about three to four hours.
This eco-friendly scooter came on the market
in December of 2017 with a starting price of $5,700 dollars.
the Xkuty One is a simple, yet modern, scooter
designed and produced in Spain.
The creators are keen to stress its ease of use.
So much so, that it ships without an instruction manual.
The 1.5 kilowatt motor produces
a top speed of 28 miles per hour
with power coming from a 48 volt battery array
providing up to 62 miles per charge.
Recharging can be done in two to three hours
from a standard plugin
with the option of solar charging as well.
The docking station in the center of the handlebars
lets your smartphone double as a dashboard display
by using the phone app as a control hub
which gives you speed and charge information.
This one is currently on the market
with a base price of around $3,600 dollars.
Taiwanese company Gogoro created this
dual-tone, minimalist design as a testament
to how cool and efficient a scooter can be.
The smartphone app keeps track of maintenance and security
using biometrics to make the scooter virtually unstealable.
Also, the company offers hundred of accessories
to customize your number two.
And yes, there's a joke to be made there.
The 6.4 kilowatt motor creates 8.58 horsepower
for a maximum speed of 56 miles per hour.
The 68 mile range is not a problem
as the batteries can be swapped out in just a few seconds
at any of the 24-hour Go stations.
The Gogoro 2 came to market in the summer of 2017
and currently starts at a little over $1,300 dollars.
this entry from Michigan-based startup GenZe
is what the company hopes will change the perception
Americans have on how useful and efficient scooters can be.
The ignition system is switch-based
and starts up when the driver enters a four-digit pin
on the dash's touchscreen.
The battery gives a top speed of 30 miles per hour
and a range of 30 miles.
Recharging the battery takes about 3.5 hours
using a standard 110 volt wall outlet.
Like most others on the list,
the GenZe has a phone app that monitors
the diagnostics, location, and security of the scooter.
It can also remotely disable it if it's stolen
and call for service if needed.
The company began delivering the first scooters
in October 2017 with a starting price of $3,000 dollars.
the ultralight composite frame of this one
folds up small enough to fit in your car's trunk.
And the battery pack is removable
and rollaway like a piece of luggage.
The 48 volt battery puts out four kilowatts of power
to the 5.4 horsepower motor
providing a top speed of 45 miles per hour.
The range can vary from 70 to 93 miles
depending on the battery array.
Recharge time is a short two hours
when plugged into a wall socket using the fast charger.
An onboard computer located in the dash
offers full connectivity to your phone and the Cloud
for the most intuitive ride and advanced safety monitoring.
The Ujet is currently available
with a base model price of $10,500 dollars.
how about an electric scooter that gets delivered
to your doorstep in a single, all-in-one box?
How about the unu?
This two-seater has a Bosch motor integrated
into the rear wheel hub.
Depending on how much power you want,
you can choose between three engines
that differ in power from one to three kilowatts.
The battery array can fit a second battery
to double the driving range from 31 to 62 miles.
The top speed is 28 miles per hour
regardless of motor power or battery level.
Like most on this list,
the batteries are portable
and can be charged at any regular outlet
in about five hours with the included charger.
And the prices on this one start at $2,200 dollars.
there are four different models in the M1 line.
Their body is lightweight due to the meshing
of plastic components with the curved trust framework.
This single seater offers two motor choices
to compliment its 48 volt battery.
The estimated range is up to 62 miles
depending on whether you're in eco or performance mode.
Recharging the batteries take six hours
and can be done in home if needed.
The Niu app allows realtime data monitoring.
This information is stored in the Cloud
enabling riders to check diagnostics
and daily use statistics straight from their mobile phone.
Prices on the M1s range from $1,600 to $2,100 dollars.
like all of Askoll's vehicles,
the ES1 was developed in-house.
It was designed to be 100% electric
instead of converting an existing combustion vehicle
to accommodate an electric motor.
This durable, lightweight single seater
gets its momentum from a 1.5 kilowatt motor
providing 74 pound-feet of torque
for a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour.
The 54 volt, 20 amp hour batteries
can be plugged into any household socket
and have a recharge time of about six hours.
The ES1 has three travel modes
and a maximum estimated range of 62 miles.
Current prices for the ES1 start at about $2,800 dollars.
don't let it's friendly scooter appearance fool you.
The small size and lightweight chassis
on this two seater can be a bit misleading.
Under the metaphorical hood,
there is a 48 volt battery and a three kilowatt motor
putting out 25.9 pound-feet of torque.
The travel mode can be configured to fit your power needs
allowing for a maximum speed of up to 46 miles per hour.
Three different display configurations on the LCD dashboard
show information such as the state of the batteries,
temperature, and the amount of power left.
In addition, it operates the keyless ignition system.
The base model for the Torrot Muvi
starts at around $3,800 dollars.
Germany's Emo-Bike company is responsible
for this streamlined innovation that
saw the removal of the gas tank and drivetrain
being replaced with a lower rear-mounted battery pack.
This opened up a centrally mounted storage space
that offers just enough room for most common items.
The 48 volt battery comes in two options,
a 1.6 kilowatt hour that offers 43.5 miles of range,
or a 2.1 kilowatt hour that offers 68 miles of range.
Recharging takes 5.5 hours on the smaller one
and seven hours on the bigger one.
The battery can be easily removed
allowing riders the ability to charge it at home.
The Feddz is available for $7,900 dollars.
the worldwide term for eco-friendliness is the word green.
But the Bee redefines the color spectrum in this case,
and how do I know?
Well, other than being fully electric,
it's made from plants.
And you heard me, I said plants.
In 2012, the Amsterdam-based company
was challenged to make a frameless scooter
using only biocomposite materials.
The result was a single structure, monocoat body
made from hemp, flax, and bioresin.
So how does it perform?
It's got a 48 volt, 50 amp hour battery
along with a 2.5 kilowatt hour motor.
A top speed of 34 miles per hour can be attained
with a maximum range of 62 miles.
All it takes to be part of this coolness is $8,300 dollars.
when you hear the name Fonz,
I'm sure your first thought isn't an electric scooter
but I think this entry may change that.
And like the original Arthur Fonzarelli,
we're sure it defines cool.
There are three different models in the Fonzarelli family.
This allows for the powertrains to be mixed and matched
to adjust for performance and need.
And depending on the battery array,
you can get a range of up to 62 miles
with a regenerative braking helping to extend this.
Again, depending on the battery array,
it can take anywhere from one to 2.5 hours for a recharge.
So grab your leather jacket
and you can start hanging out with the Fonz
for $4,300 dollars.
the advantages of changing to
electric mobility are unquestionable.
So it's no surprise that this entry
is made from a patented compound
used to create a chassis that requires
no component welding, plate mounting, or strut assembly.
This resulted in a lightweight vehicle
with a very distinctive design named ME.
The 2.5 kilowatt motor can transport up to two people
at a reasonable 28 miles per hour
for roughly 50 miles.
Regenerative braking can increase this range up to 10%
depending on the overall load.
Recharging the battery is simple
and can be done in about six hours
by either direct connection or removing it
and using any standard 220 volt electrical outlet.
So if you want to hangout with ME,
the starting price is about $5,800 dollars.
if any name epitomizes the scooter industry,
it is Vespa.
Parent company Piaggio has named this venture
the Elettrica and though it maintains the iconic look,
it is nothing like it's gas-powered predecessors.
It's driven by a motor generating four kilowatts
of peak power while remaining completely silent.
The company guarantees a range of 62 miles
on the base model before recharging.
The dash has an embedded touchscreen
between the handlebars with smartphone connectivity
that shows diagnostic information about the scooter.
The included app will allow users to control messaging
and take incoming phone calls as well.
Pre-orders will start in Spring 2018,
but there's still no word on the pricing.
