Now Available – 180 MPG Scooter!

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Perhaps there is a segment of the U.S. ground transportation industry that is on the cutting edge. ELV Motors is already producing scooters while others are still developing. Peugot and Honda made the headlines in the past couple of weeks with the announcement of new hybrid scooters, but ELV Motors seems to be a step ahead. Not only does this scooter have better gas mileage and is available today, it is relatively inexpensive at just under $3,000. The speed is limited to 40 mph, but who would take a scooter out on the highway anyway?

The bike weighs in at about 200 lbs., and has a 49cc engine to power the package. Anyone considering getting a scooter needs to take a close look at this one.
