As you know, we are always on the look out for new innovations in the world of “green” transportation. Recently, we found the Tilter, a fantastic creation by French entrepreneur, Eric Rose. The Tilter is an all electric, motorcycle-car which provides the driver with a top speed of 68 miles per hour and travels 0-60 in 13 seconds. A fully charged battery lasts for about 80 miles so the driver has some room to roam around town. Mass production of the Tilter should begin in 2012. So get ready, you may be seeing this 3 wheeled beauty zipping around pretty soon.
This scooter looks fit enough for Batman but in actuality, it’s made for people with a little less extravagant taste in transportation. Though it looks like it could protect the Dark Knight during the craziest of high-speed pursuits, it’s really designed to protect the environment.
The armadillo like shell you see in the picture is filled solar panels. Designed for city dwellers, the scooter has a range of 12 miles and reach speeds of 30 miles per hour.
The bike is currently a concept but Barcelona-based design firm, Guimeraicinca, may have come up with a breakthrough idea for powering electric scooters. This retractable shell allows for maximum exposure to the sun, resulting in quick and efficient charging. For now, this seems like a great option while we wait for EV stations to become more common.
Let’s cut to the chase. We want this. We want it bad. And we’re betting you do too.
When we heard BPG Motors was finally accepting pre-orders on their new UNO III Electric Scooter, we just had to share the news. This adaptable little guy actually morphs from a tri-wheeler to a “standing” dicycle; best of all, the magic switch can happen while in motion, if desired. (Insert Homer Simpson-inspired drool here.)
