15 ELECTRIC SCOOTERS AND SMART MOPEDS AVAILABLE IN 2018

15 ELECTRIC SCOOTERS AND SMART MOPEDS AVAILABLE IN 2018


– [Reacher] Hello to everyone old and new, it’s Reacher here and I’m ringing in 2018 with 15 electric scooters
and smart mopeds. Number 15, this first entry comes
from a collaboration between Ford Motor
Company and OjO Electric to produce scooters visually
inspired by Ford vehicles while incorporating OjO’s
innovative technology and design. An aluminum frame integrated with automotive grade plastic fairings, provide the strength and beauty
to this wing-shaped ride. The treaded, non-slip
deck and removable seat allow for either sitting
or standing while riding and can hold a maximum
weight of 300 pounds. The OjO is driven by a 500 watt, rear wheel hub electric motor that has a top speed of 20 miles per hour and a range of about 25 miles per charge. The projected cost is
less than $2,000 dollars with a release data of January 2018. Number 14, the design team’s goal with the Nito NES was to break through the daily grind and give freedom to those caught up in the chaos of city life. The body is reminiscent of day’s gone by in every aspect of its design. The angled deck is crafted
from marine plywood that integrates seamlessly
into the molded framework. The seat is mounted on a
tubular steel structure and can support two people comfortably. The NES runs on a four kilowatt engine and can reach a maximum
speed of 28 miles per hour. The battery will last for about 50 miles before needing a recharge which only requires about
three to four hours. This eco-friendly scooter
came on the market in December of 2017 with a
starting price of $5,700 dollars. Number 13, the Xkuty One is a simple,
yet modern, scooter designed and produced in Spain. The creators are keen to
stress its ease of use. So much so, that it ships
without an instruction manual. The 1.5 kilowatt motor produces a top speed of 28 miles per hour with power coming from
a 48 volt battery array providing up to 62 miles per charge. Recharging can be done
in two to three hours from a standard plugin with the option of solar charging as well. The docking station in the
center of the handlebars lets your smartphone double
as a dashboard display by using the phone app as a control hub which gives you speed
and charge information. This one is currently on the market with a base price of
around $3,600 dollars. Number 12, Taiwanese company Gogoro created this dual-tone, minimalist
design as a testament to how cool and efficient
a scooter can be. The smartphone app keeps track
of maintenance and security using biometrics to make the
scooter virtually unstealable. Also, the company offers
hundred of accessories to customize your number two. And yes, there’s a joke to be made there. The 6.4 kilowatt motor
creates 8.58 horsepower for a maximum speed of 56 miles per hour. The 68 mile range is not a problem as the batteries can be swapped
out in just a few seconds at any of the 24-hour Go stations. The Gogoro 2 came to market
in the summer of 2017 and currently starts at a
little over $1,300 dollars. Number 11, this entry from
Michigan-based startup GenZe is what the company hopes
will change the perception Americans have on how useful
and efficient scooters can be. The ignition system is switch-based and starts up when the driver
enters a four-digit pin on the dash’s touchscreen. The battery gives a top
speed of 30 miles per hour and a range of 30 miles. Recharging the battery
takes about 3.5 hours using a standard 110 volt wall outlet. Like most others on the list, the GenZe has a phone app that monitors the diagnostics, location,
and security of the scooter. It can also remotely
disable it if it’s stolen and call for service if needed. The company began delivering
the first scooters in October 2017 with a starting
price of $3,000 dollars. Number 10, the ultralight composite frame of this one folds up small enough to
fit in your car’s trunk. And the battery pack is removable and rollaway like a piece of luggage. The 48 volt battery puts
out four kilowatts of power to the 5.4 horsepower motor providing a top speed
of 45 miles per hour. The range can vary from 70 to 93 miles depending on the battery array. Recharge time is a short two hours when plugged into a wall
socket using the fast charger. An onboard computer located in the dash offers full connectivity
to your phone and the Cloud for the most intuitive ride
and advanced safety monitoring. The Ujet is currently available with a base model price
of $10,500 dollars. Number nine, how about an electric
scooter that gets delivered to your doorstep in a
single, all-in-one box? How about the unu? This two-seater has a
Bosch motor integrated into the rear wheel hub. Depending on how much power you want, you can choose between three engines that differ in power from
one to three kilowatts. The battery array can fit a second battery to double the driving
range from 31 to 62 miles. The top speed is 28 miles per hour regardless of motor
power or battery level. Like most on this list, the batteries are portable and can be charged at any regular outlet in about five hours with
the included charger. And the prices on this one
start at $2,200 dollars. Number eight, there are four different
models in the M1 line. Their body is lightweight
due to the meshing of plastic components with
the curved trust framework. This single seater
offers two motor choices to compliment its 48 volt battery. The estimated range is up to 62 miles depending on whether you’re
in eco or performance mode. Recharging the batteries take six hours and can be done in home if needed. The Niu app allows
realtime data monitoring. This information is stored in the Cloud enabling riders to check diagnostics and daily use statistics
straight from their mobile phone. Prices on the M1s range from
$1,600 to $2,100 dollars. Number seven, like all of Askoll’s vehicles, the ES1 was developed in-house. It was designed to be 100% electric instead of converting an
existing combustion vehicle to accommodate an electric motor. This durable, lightweight single seater gets its momentum from
a 1.5 kilowatt motor providing 74 pound-feet of torque for a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour. The 54 volt, 20 amp hour batteries can be plugged into any household socket and have a recharge
time of about six hours. The ES1 has three travel modes and a maximum estimated range of 62 miles. Current prices for the ES1
start at about $2,800 dollars. Number six, don’t let it’s friendly
scooter appearance fool you. The small size and lightweight chassis on this two seater can
be a bit misleading. Under the metaphorical hood, there is a 48 volt battery
and a three kilowatt motor putting out 25.9 pound-feet of torque. The travel mode can be configured
to fit your power needs allowing for a maximum speed
of up to 46 miles per hour. Three different display
configurations on the LCD dashboard show information such as
the state of the batteries, temperature, and the amount of power left. In addition, it operates
the keyless ignition system. The base model for the Torrot Muvi starts at around $3,800 dollars. Number five, Germany’s Emo-Bike company is responsible for this streamlined innovation that saw the removal of the
gas tank and drivetrain being replaced with a lower
rear-mounted battery pack. This opened up a centrally
mounted storage space that offers just enough
room for most common items. The 48 volt battery comes in two options, a 1.6 kilowatt hour that
offers 43.5 miles of range, or a 2.1 kilowatt hour that
offers 68 miles of range. Recharging takes 5.5
hours on the smaller one and seven hours on the bigger one. The battery can be easily removed allowing riders the ability
to charge it at home. The Feddz is available for $7,900 dollars. Number four, the worldwide term for
eco-friendliness is the word green. But the Bee redefines the
color spectrum in this case, and how do I know? Well, other than being fully electric, it’s made from plants. And you heard me, I said plants. In 2012, the Amsterdam-based company was challenged to make a frameless scooter using only biocomposite materials. The result was a single
structure, monocoat body made from hemp, flax, and bioresin. So how does it perform? It’s got a 48 volt, 50 amp hour battery along with a 2.5 kilowatt hour motor. A top speed of 34 miles
per hour can be attained with a maximum range of 62 miles. All it takes to be part of this
coolness is $8,300 dollars. Number three, when you hear the name Fonz, I’m sure your first thought
isn’t an electric scooter but I think this entry may change that. And like the original Arthur Fonzarelli, we’re sure it defines cool. There are three different
models in the Fonzarelli family. This allows for the powertrains
to be mixed and matched to adjust for performance and need. And depending on the battery array, you can get a range of up to 62 miles with a regenerative braking
helping to extend this. Again, depending on the battery array, it can take anywhere from one
to 2.5 hours for a recharge. So grab your leather jacket and you can start
hanging out with the Fonz for $4,300 dollars. Number two, the advantages of changing to electric mobility are unquestionable. So it’s no surprise that this entry is made from a patented compound used to create a chassis that requires no component welding, plate
mounting, or strut assembly. This resulted in a lightweight vehicle with a very distinctive design named ME. The 2.5 kilowatt motor can
transport up to two people at a reasonable 28 miles per hour for roughly 50 miles. Regenerative braking can
increase this range up to 10% depending on the overall load. Recharging the battery is simple and can be done in about six hours by either direct connection or removing it and using any standard 220
volt electrical outlet. So if you want to hangout with ME, the starting price is
about $5,800 dollars. (upbeat music) Number one, if any name epitomizes
the scooter industry, it is Vespa. Parent company Piaggio
has named this venture the Elettrica and though it
maintains the iconic look, it is nothing like it’s
gas-powered predecessors. It’s driven by a motor
generating four kilowatts of peak power while
remaining completely silent. The company guarantees a range of 62 miles on the base model before recharging. The dash has an embedded touchscreen between the handlebars with
smartphone connectivity that shows diagnostic
information about the scooter. The included app will allow
users to control messaging and take incoming phone calls as well. Pre-orders will start in Spring 2018, but there’s still no word on the pricing. (light music) (light music)

  1. Most of the prices are outrageous considering the cost to make them cost less than 500.00 or less. Bring the prices down and watch your sales skyrocket.

  2. how do you put a hitch mount on these bikes so i can connect a mini trailer tell me where do i go to get it mounted ?

  3. you just stole the idea and the line up from a smaller channel. you should be ashamed of yourself, you should value your viewers and not leech some other dude's work. you'll have to respect from your viewers once they see it

  4. Most of these units are way overpriced. Local shops are selling similar models with the entire family range of $1200 to $1450.
    I'm talking 45-50kph and 60 km distance. I also noticed most of these units were single seaters, unreasonable to drive with your GF or wife. Some were just plain electric bicycles not moped scooters. For $350 your can replace the front wheel of any standard bicycle for a magnet driven electric that maintains 28Kph. In all, this video was misleading (certainly commercial driven) and not very practical when you can buy a nice used BMW car for less than most of these scooters.

  5. U forgot add bolt from dutch best scooter electric around the world 400km range and u show here fails abut 80miles seriously

  6. See also Ubco e moped from New Zealand. These are all potentially great for city driving speeds and should sell well. I hope they can still hold city speeds on a hill though. I owned a 1500 watt e scooter about 10 years ago. It was great on the flat but it couldn't tackle hills. Hills are the acid test for e bikes I think (unless you intend only to ride on the flat). Great video. Thanks.

  7. I wonder how the rest are going to compete with gororo out performed all of them with its price, top speed, and range ?

  8. 62 miles, that's all I hear can't any of these damn things go further than 62 miles maximum, why is it number so hard to get over

  9. You know these scooter companies make these Ads, which I am not denying the coolness of the products. But they use tiny half sized models riding these things. Now I am no marketing expert but, shouldn't there be normal to plus-sized people modeling the tough/ruggedness of their scooter? I don't know… I feel like that would be a better selling point then having the bike practically being driven autonomously hahaha.

  10. they all look a bit crappy, weak, small range etc. there no way to have much more power and big removable batteries with 3 or 4 wheels in a scooter shape ?

  11. Too bad some of these moped like scooters have strict regulations where I live. You need insurance, registration, windshield mount, mva tags, and Drivers License.

  12. I watched the whole video and didn't see one Moped. Do you even know what a moped is? Mo ( Motor ) Ped ( Pedal ) Moped.

  13. All O' y'all at Minds Eye Design R "Awesome" at giving out details on D products you show on your channel! I like D way you finish up every one of those individual "Rolling Product Subjects" from >>>
    " Walking Stix to Luxury Rides" by giving out D price on them! It is much appreciated, and also makes that particular subject have a complete close on it, which is more than can be said for a lot of the other Vids out there with no prices on D vehicles making them look quite incomplete N sloppy! HeHe
    GREAT INFORMATIVE VIDEOS TNX

  14. if that electric scooter gets in to business it is all corporate and poltican plan when solar and inverter solar appliance to solar two wheeler to pull the hevavy load when industries looking for altenative major alternative to reduce the burden of electricity all that solar is demandable

    from 2000 there is lot of trial executed in southern place of electric and which attain huge failures due to repair renwalas and capacity all that today invention is more than that we are stepping to 2020

    till our country cannot even generated self suffient for house hold goods be it with out electricity how do we reduce more electricity they said led buld led usage amazing trick theri meter to digital calibration what is the use nothing this all added expenses more than metal meter we pay today more than 12 months bill on bi month on month

    this is almost looter

    as tax , looting to as change solar home appliances, solar passenger car and solar vechile solar electricity still on coming for next independence either youth member or those member above 60% 40% o population should bring out what correction for india solar

    every country is leading more than anyhng but still india begs as fuel we not able to bring anything of commuters inteface be it satellite to be it usage of solar technology is almost fooling public

    today scheme over scheme tamilnad politcs be it any dravadian party they have to come to lime light and this all practicsed aryan and ravadian businsss politcss what about people we not get anything

    amazing blaming schmes blaming is the busiens to loot and just like today kerala flood and artifical dam damage all well planned for poltical business

  15. ** Sir, I have a question. Is it possible to charge a battery with alternator while the scooter is running? Like Petrol and Diesel cars. Maybe Japan can come up with a way to do it. ***

  16. Thanks for this video – really interested models and concepts – and detailed comments.
    (liked and subscribed.)

    But I think, some models are too expensive.

  17. I really like #12 "gogoro" at a price of just over $1300. I went to their site (gogoro.com) and the price for the S1 is $4500 and the newer S2 is $3700. A lot more than "just over $1300. Thought that it might be "too good to be true", it was.

  18. The ojo is just too weird looking, and the price aint good value for what it offers.

    The nes is worse, too pricy and not enough range.

    The ONE is again too expensive. It feels more like an accessory.

    Now we're talking. The gogoro 2 is what we should strive for, not the hipster scooters.

    The genze is better than the earlier ones but not as good as the gogoro.

    10k for the ujet? I don't think so. Bad value, even with its portabilty and a range that good, which in an urban environment is not even that useful.

    The unu is ok. I give it second place.

    The niu is toe to toe with the unu being cheaper, but not as utilitarian.

    ES1 has ok range, but it's slow and with a mediocre price.

    The muvi would be great if it wasn't at the price point it is.

    The feddz is a nono. Pricey and more like a bicycle than a scooter/moped.

    So, if you're broke you can't help the environment. BTW this thing is ugly.

    Quick to charge, but the fonz is kinda expensive.

    Too expensive and too simplistic. Not very practical either.

    The electrica looks great and since it is a proper moped beats most of the entries here. I am convinced that it will be very pricy, though.

  19. Unfortunately, MOST of these are NOT available in the U.S.A. and some are available only in one country. Fun/interesting to watch, but less useful if you are actually interested in buying one.

  20. CDs European scooters here that says 3 to 4 Hour charge time they're basing that on a 220 volt socket at 50 hertz and America Canada and Mexico we use 110 at 60 hertz so you probably talking about double the charge time please state that it's based either on American electricity or on European electricity with each model

  21. Are any of these available in USA? "Available in 2018" is a little misleading, maybe you could mention what country they are available in.

  22. We live in years where there should be no limitation and we can choose the options we want.

    Let's say I'm taking the scooter to visit the mall.

    Visiting the mall takes about 2-3 hours.

    What I do ? Do I try to walk the scooter through the mall, or visit the mall without extra weight?

    What option do I have to leave the scooter without someone stealing? And without its binding being restrictive, like how it is on a bicycle, to can chain it at different distances from a place. Binding can be the place where bikes are attached, may be a lower or taller fence, may be a thinner or thicker pylon.

    – also add a solar pannel charger will be good to charge battery until I come back from the mall visit

    Then other utilities that should not miss out on any other scooter are:

    – Phone charging

    – 1. touch screen with speed information, km spent in this session and total, percentage of battery charge, clock, eventually outside degrees

    2. change touch screen, with onother one, a more complex touch screen, that contain those the above and also has GPS

    – The ability to catch the light up or down (I do not appreciate that the light is at the bottom of the scooter. Upper visibility is better for those in traffic at night or we are interested in like the others on the opposite side, to see us, so they can avoid us).

    – Upgrade (like electronic speed limitation aproximatively as our choice, or speed limitation, especially for scooters that can reach speeds above 60-70 km/h, and other different upgrades…)

    Come on… two weeks more and we are in the years 2019. Let's use the technologies of these years.

    Or maybe those who make these electric scooters are old-fashioned old men born before the year 2000?

  23. It's mind blowing that it takes about 4 hours for my mini ATV to get fully charged on a normal socket but there are some of these mopeds that can fully charge in only 2 hours

    At the same time my mini ATV only generates 1000 watts (1 kilowatt)

  24. The German & Dutch "entries" are way overpriced @ $8,000+, and likely the Vespa will not be far behind. An assortment of used cars are a better value…. Still with this many entries, prices likely will moderate, and something just as performance-comparable will emerge…..maybe along the line of the old Lotus 7, the car in "The Prisoner," which, in some iterations, was to be assembled & finished by the consignee……?

    Electric "scooters" should be even more foolproof since there would be next-to-no engine tuning: Align the 'carosserie' (sp?) sections; tighten the screws; attach the wheels; and plug up….! "Kit-stuff"???

    …..then there are 'liability laws'…..?!?!

  25. When are these companies going to make a 3 answer for people that have a balance pro tem or handicapped ? When that happens i will buy one right away !!!!

  26. When are these companies going to make a 3 wheeler for people that have balance problems ? For people that may be particularly handicapped but can also handle speed ? Another Question :
    AT 28 MPH – DO YOU NEED A TAG FOR THE SCOOTERS ?

  27. There all real sharp, ( THE Fonz ) -was cool ! But The Vespa i really liked.
    But I was serious about the 3 – WHEELER ( Where. Are. They. ? )
    ((( AND. THANK. YOU. )))

  28. The gogoro is the only one I respect…great price to power ratio. The others can shove their over-priced dildo's with wheels where the sun don't shine.

  29. where the hell can you buy a replacement battery 48 volt 12 amp for these things the sellers have not thought this one through like hens teeth please contact 07514044982 you will need to buy spare battery or you will have a very nice garden ornament buyer beware

  30. Iiliam now waiting for a replacement battery from all seasons scooters looks like they will make good I'll keep you informed14 02 2019

  31. The #12 bike GoGoRo 2 from Taiwan is not 1,300 dollars like he says in this video. It's between 3 and 4 thousand dollars depending where you buy it. Misleading information.

  32. All I got is my 4 wheeler Honda my 90 electric but with 12 volt battery iI think I love Honda Toyota best and I've Had lotta. Bikes

  33. Gogoro and Vespa are the only ones that look like a real scooters.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veqGvXV0uH4

  34. For the amount of money you pay for these “Green Scooters” You could easily buy a used motorcycle or gas powered scooter that goes faster and longer distance

  35. Are there affordable scooters in the US, or has the fossil fuel industries squeezed them out? I see so many people riding electric scooters (rich and poor) in other countries on TV, yet here they seem pretty rare, or way overpriced.

  36. love the askoll es 1 is talked about being a single seater then the whole vid is showing it being a two seater.

  37. Your video is great but I really don’t like most of these scooters. Why? Because they are either not much faster than my bicycle and/or they look girly. I could live with the Vespa because the more powerful scooters have a bumped out rear wheel wheel well that makes it look a little manly.

  38. I think all of them are too expensive. Except the one for 1300 not bad. Taiwan make better merchandise then China

  39. 8:44 It hasn't worked… when I hear the name Fonz I think “Wait, what was that? Did I hear something in the attic? There it is again. Oh wait, never mind. It was probably my imagination.” !!!
