Pricey plank power
Spanish company Engineering Unlimited has launched a set of screw-on power wheels on Kickstarter. Called the Eon, they offer a choice of batteries to drive a 1 kW hub motor in each wheel. Unlimited hopes to raise €100 000 (R15,7 million) on Kickstarter and has already received pledges for R5 million. Unlimited plans to sell the Eon from €699 (R11 090) for the Solo kit, and €799 for the Cruiser.
