The Turbowheel Dart 25 mph electric scooter is 1.2 kW worth of fun – Electrek

Via Elektrek, now this is a proper scooter:

With a light show even!

I’ve tried the Bird scooters locally and they’re fun. They zip along well on level ground but with my mass (6’10” 240lbs), they can’t manage the hill that I live on. Those are 250W, most are the Xiomi M365. This beast is almost six times more (peak) power! And suspension and enough lighting to see and be seen.

Elektrek likes it:

It rides like a cloud, basically.


It’s a thousand bucks and 39lbs, but if I can find an excuse I am so wanting to buy one. It’d work for runs to the library and supermarket and such.

Ural electric sidecar

This looks just amazing – Ural took the guts of the Zero DS-R and made a sidecar out of it:

That looks so damned cool!

From the pictures, I could carry a passenger, maybe even two, and it’d certainly work for a most of our grocery and household shopping. Alas, it’s only a prototype for now, but the combination of modern powertrain and retro style (right out of the Indiana Jones movies, eh?) really tickles my fancy. One more picture:

Ural Motorcycles finalized the first development phase of an all-electric sidecar motorcycle. The electric prototype was built on the existing one-wheel drive cT chassis, utilizing Zero Motorcycles’ proprietary powertrain package (motor, batteries, controller and other components). California-based company ICG developed the overall design and was responsible for fabricating the initial prototype. Zero Motorcycles also provided the necessary engineering support during development and testing of the prototype that made this project possible.
