The Turboant X7 Electric Scooter Is An Affordable Last Mile Option For Commuters On The Go

November 11th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

In the world of electric scooters, the market is still very much in flux. The first round of e-scooters brought a glimpse of the promise of micromobility to the masses, but with many of the early products failing to hold up to the rigors of daily use. The team at Turboant has worked through the early learnings from the first iteration and is now back with the second version of the Turboant X7 that promises to correct the missing handle and loose battery issues that plagued the first of its name

October 31st, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

Are you an adventurer who loves it all? Busy urban streets and ... winding, hidden country roads. This may be the perfect solo getaway vehicles. The Daymak Beast 2.0 is great for quiet cruises through the wilderness, or for city commutes


Micromobility Has Always Been King

October 26th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

In recent years, there's been a lot of buzz about micromobility, a term that varies depending on who is talking about it. Some writers only consider it to include shared vehicles of small size, while others limit the term to small electrified vehicles (whether personally owned or shared). Most writers would probably agree that the vehicles must be small, and that micromobility is something new that's going to expand and take a big chunk of the transportation industry


Lumos Matrix Helmet — The Gold Standard In Bike Safety

September 29th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

It's not often that we write reviews of a bike helmet on CleanTechnica. For most people, and for most helmets, there's nothing special. You find one that fits on your head and that meets the applicable safety standards, adjust it to fit, and go. Lumos decided to go above and beyond the normal with their new Matrix helmet. Not only does it protect your head, but it has features that can help prevent an accident from happening in the first place


Monday Motorbikes: The Gateway To Cool

September 23rd, 2019 | by Susanna Schick

I’ve had my eye on Monday since it first popped up on my Instagram feed. They’re cute. But they’re also cool. They’ve still got that vibe of the Puch 50 they’re modeled after. But they also have a modern feel, all black-clad. They follow the Henry Ford Design School -- you can have any color you want, as long as it’s black. Definitely the perfect vehicle for heading to the beach, or to work

September 19th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Mark Frohnmayer and the crew of creative crafters at Arcimoto have spent years refining the three-wheeled electric vehicle they call the Fun Utility Vehicle.

Small & Micro EVs Would Sell & Work Better If They Didn’t Look Funny

August 24th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

As good as small EVs like the Smart (and its motorcycle-engined gas predecessors) do their jobs, they just aren't that appealing. They are built as tall as a more traditional compact hatchback, but much shorter and narrower. I'm sure the reason they're built this way is for ease of entry and exit and other utilitarian purposes, but it gives them a poor drag coefficient along with the odd looks

Amsterdam-based electric scooter company Etergo was on a quest to build the manufacturing base for its fully electric AppScooter and just this week announced that a decision has been made.

£90,000 Buys You The Ultimate Electric Café Racer, The Arc Vector

June 30th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

By putting the price upfront, Arc Vector wants to remove any potential confusion around this electric motorcycle (e-motorcycle). The performance, like the price, will be wild. Although I've seen more than my fair share of extravagance, my first question is, is this thing wilder than the already insane Lightning Motorcycle LS218? If so, then the Arc Vector electric motorcycle is going to be thunderous!
