An electric scooter that costs a penny per mile

It comes with a removable battery and standard plug that allows the rider to top up the power while at work or in a coffee shop, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported. The scooter, which clocks in at just a penny (Rs 0.7) a mile (1.6km), is available with its own designer carry bag to make sneaking it under your desk that bit easier, according to its developers.

More economical

“Throughout the process we kept in mind that we were designing something to slot into people’s lives, helping them to be greener and more economical without looking like an extra from Star Trek,” TP Scoot makers said on their website.

It is available in two models —Maximilian II, a rugged matt-black beast with a 1,000W zero-emissions electric engine and the 500W Ferdinand II, which costs about 1,330 pounds.
