If you have ever been to India, China, Thailand, or Japan you know that the scooter is practically a family car. I have seen as many as 5 people on one scooter. Pretty impressive.
Terra Motors, of Japan, has created their A4000i electric scooter. The A4000i has a 40 mile range and a top speed of 40mph. This wouldn’t work to well in America, but it works great for the congested short commutes of Japan. The battery is also removable so you can take it upstairs to charge while your scooter waits at street level. This removable battery also has a significant lifespan of 31,000 miles.
The coolest feature of the A4000i electric scooter is that it uses your iPhone as the dashboard. Your iPhone will display the battery life, current speed, etc…
The A4000i will hit the Japanese market for about ¥450,000 (US $4,5000).
