Es­to­nia’s e-scooter

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

A group of Es­to­ni­ans de­signed this laid-back elec­tric scooter and the first one has now clocked over 1 600 kilo­me­tres. Top speed is a very laid back 35 km/h, although its mak­ers say the 1 kW Golden Mo­tors from China can be ad­justed for your spe­cific need for speed. The mo­tor is in the 20-inch front wheel, with a 20Ah, 48-volt bat­tery pack above the fat, 18-inch rear Pirelli Di­ablo tyre giv­ing a range of just over 50 km. A pledge of $6 000 (over R68k) will get you a Chop-E de­liv­ered some­time in Au­gust. PHOTO: CHOPE
