Munich-based start-up company UNU Motors has unveiled an electric scooter that is powered by a Panasonic lithium-ion battery unit and can be charged from any electrical outlet. Headed by Atahi Elias and Pascal Blum, the UNU takes design cues from the timeless gasoline-powered Vespa, however its integrated F1 technology, specifically the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), sets it apart from any scooter currently in the market and is the secret behind its whopping range. With a top speed of 45 km/h (approximately 28 mph) and weighing in at a mere 58 kg, this scooter is clearly designed for whizzing around the city. Furthermore, the UNU Electric Scooter’s price point of 1,699 EUR (approximately $2,230 USD) makes for an even more enticing option for urban commuters to consider. For more information on the UNU, head over to UNU Motors site.
