    This is a wonderful concept and there is a market for motorbikes and bicycles in Taiwan. I like its convenience and 110 km range is not too bad either. Enough to get to most places and back before replacing the battery. Is there a price for this Electric Scooter, for reference?

      Hi Jude
      Thanks for visiting my website and the great comments about the electric scooter era, they are priced around $3300
      just think of the savings on fuel and maintenance as the electric scooter has very little maintenance.
      I foresee a great future for these electric 2 wheel marvels.

    This type of vehicle must be implemented in most suburban areas where i live …the thing is, I am spending 3miles for my gas for just a galon of milk of going to the store … It is the battery Swapping feature is my number 1 catch of this smart vehicle, since all you need to do is discharching the battery from the station and immediately swap for a fully charged one – No waiting or delay… cool! If we can eliminate more Co2 emissions in our space then I would love to own this scooter in the near future!
