10 Personal Transport Vehicles Defining Urban Transportation


From scooters to bikes these electric ways of transportation will knock your socks off. Number Ten – Super 73 E-bike We are taking it back, way back, to the 70s, where every kid’s dream was to own a Honda Z 50 mini trail bike. Well, the guys over at lithium cycles have us covered One of the first things you might notice is that it’s 100% electric and has no engine The battery pack was actually designed to resemble a fuel tank and was mounted on top in front of the seat The padded seat has been shortened and has the unique option to add a cargo rack Since there is no mid frame motor there has to be something to power it It uses a brushless DC rear hub motor, which is almost non-existent, because it’s actually built into the wheel. In the US market they offer a 500-watt version with a 48 volt 14.5 lithium-ion fuel tank. That can get you moving pretty fast around 20 miles per hour for over 40 miles to be exact Number Nine – Electric Assist Velomobile Unfortunately, this one is not in production. But how could we not put this on our list? I mean look at it It just looks rad. This is a 20 year project that was started by a man in Canada And this is his fourth prototype that now has around 2,500 miles on it. You might be asking yourself What is a Velomobile? Well, It’s just a fancy way of saying a human-powered vehicle, aka a bike, that has fully enclosed to help with aerodynamics and speed What really makes this electric bike special is the dual drivetrain which allows the rider’s pedaling power to go directly to the rear wheel via a long chain drive When the bank reaches speeds of over 6 miles an hour the chain drive starts freewheeling and the pedal power goes to a generator which allows it to be powered electrically Number Eight BMW Kick Scooter This electric scooter has a range of 15 to 22 miles and folds up smaller than any folding bicycle on the market Although this isn’t anything groundbreaking. It does offer the BMW experience to a whole new audience So how does it work? Well, it’s pretty simple actually The rider needs to propel themselves and the scooter up to at least 6 miles per hour before the electric drive can be engaged Hence the name kick scooter. Once you’ve reached 6 miles per hour you hit the throttle and you’re off. The operating unit on the handlebars offers 5 speeds in quantum jumps. Sounds fancy, , right? We assume that it is very similar to a paddle-shift in a car or maybe some sort of time travel contraption Number Seven – Monowheel Electric Scooter. This one-wheeled beast is one of the first self-balancing Transportation devices coming to the market that will be under $1000 It has a top speed of 20 miles per hour and a charge time of only one hour. Since it has smart technology it can be driven wirelessly via an app on your phone. It has shock suspension to soak up the bumps in the road and weighing in at a little under 35 pounds will only make it a little heavy to carry home if the battery goes out. The slight extra weight coming from this device is because of the very large wheel Which is designed to be that way to allow the rider to feel more secure when first learning how to ride. Number Six – Ujet Electric Scooter The mix of A-symmetrical construction of mixed metals and carbon fiber really makes the scooter stand out of the crowd Oh, and don’t forget those gorgeous 14-inch hubless wheels, which really catch your eye when you start looking. This is the heart of the Ujet. This is where the integrated suspension and large diameter disc brakes are helped. On the front wheel, it houses the 5.4 horsepower and 65 foot-pounds of torque and a top speed of 28 miles per hour without having to recharge for 93 miles Oh, and one last thing. The wheels are a Nano Augmented Technology. What that means is they are a rubber compound enhanced with single-walled carbon Nanotubes making them some of the lightest and have some of the best grip in its class. Number Five – Fat scooters. The Fat Scooter is very similar to the screws, ur from 2013 But it is not the same This scooter uses a twist grip to kick in the hub motor as well as kicking your foot on the ground But get it up to speed so the rider can either sit or stand when powering it. This fan uses a big ol chunky 18 by 9.5 inch tire running under some wickedly ride fenders with an all steel frame and a hub motor in the back tire The electric motor is rated at 1200 watts, which has a top speed of roughly 20 miles per hour it has a low profile battery pack that gives the scooter around 6 inches of ground clearance and uses hydraulic rather than Mechanical disc brakes. Oh, we almost forgot it has an LED headlamp for those night rides Number four poland’s eb for This trike positions the writer in a laid-back and very comfy riding position It features a 250 watt brushless rear hub motor for up to 16 miles per hour of electric assist and a removable 16 volt lithium-ion battery pack that says it can last up to 50 miles on a single charge This is similar to the other electric assisted vehicles We have covered in this video You pedal the trike up to speed then the electric motor helps you ride longer and faster than a normal bike The trike has 16 inch wheels in front a 20 inch rear wheel and two pneumatic bike shocks for any rough Terrain, you might come across Number three the Eagle this Concept kick scooter was just announced within the last few months as being one of the thinnest and lightest electric Transportation vehicles on the market, which is pretty awesome because if it dies You don’t want to have to push around and have you scooter all the way home We don’t know a lot about all the specs on it yet But what we do know is very intriguing the e Scooter will roll for up to 18 miles on a single charge and has a top speed of around 16 miles per hour it has a display on the handlebars that you will be able to sync your smartphone with which will allow you to show navigation weather and Notifications this sounds a little dangerous to us. But at least you aren’t driving a car in the pictures We have so far. This prototype was fashioned in plastic, but when it comes to market it will be made completely of carbon-fiber Number two uno bull self-balancing Single wheeler the name of this one says it all we know this isn’t the only self balancing one wheeled vehicle coming to the market but it might beat the rest of the competition to the marketplace while also keeping it in a very reasonable price range of around $1,000. Let’s get into the specs. Shall we a? 1000 watt motor and a 60 volt lithium-ion removable battery is used to power that motor It can be fully charged within 45 minutes and on a single charge a rider can go around 25 miles at a top speed of 22 miles per hour It may look big and clunky but this monster has got some power behind it the vehicle weighs in at around 45 pounds and can carry a maximum load of almost 300 pounds All the writer has to do is just lean forward to move ahead lean back to slow down and pull the handbrake to stop Number one dual motor electric pod bike this futuristic prototype has just been unveiled The full version of this pot bike is being released in a batch of 12 and will include a thermoplastic canopy for the best possible aerodynamics and weather protection This version which uses pedaling dual motors to augment the power of the writer Yes the four wheeled bike does have pedals the operator uses those pedals to get the bike up to speed generating electricity and transferring that power to the hub motors in each back tire a Removable battery pack adds some extra power making the top speed with both motors in action around 16 miles per hour The battery range is an estimated 37 miles with additional packs being planned for future upgrades when this vehicle hits the market Hey guys, this is amber.
