Bright Idea for Electrical Scooters

Here’s a little article I wrote for Wired News. Follow the link below for more.

Bright Idea for Electric Scooters SolarMove, a startup from Berlin, believes that electrical scooters make sense. E-scooters move silently like prowling cats. They are zippy enough and they aren’t stinkos. However, on Germany’s streets e-scooters are seen about as often as pickup trucks with American flags –- almost never.

What keeps e-scooters off the streets? Mostly fear of running out of juice. Have you ever had to push a motorcycle or scooter several miles to get home?



“Build the right infrastructure and they will come,” is SolarMove’s theme. The company wants to redesign 200 streetlight poles into fuel stations for e-scooters by 2003.
