Stylish T20 bamboo scooter hides its electric side
Frenchman Antoine Fritsch has managed to design an electric scooter that not only looks socially acceptable for riders of all ages, but one that could, at least in theory, serve as a viable alternative to a urban city car.
After kicking off with your feet, the T20's electric system swings into action, propelling the scooter to a respectable top speed of 22 miles per hour. The T20's range of 25 miles should be more than ample for inner-city types and its stylish frame is of the eco-friendly bamboo variety. The electric-drive system is hidden directly beneath the rider's feet.
Unfortunately, the T20 is only a concept, and designer Fritsch has no intention of it entering the realm of production electric scooters. A real shame, that.
