BusinessWeek.com’s article “Urban Eco-Transport to Hit the Street” reported about “fleets of nonpolluting electric scooters known as ‘light electric vehicles,’ or LEVs, a new type of urban transport” to be produced by Ultra Motor for Stuttgart, which will be available for rent. Go Stuttgart! Go Ultra Motor!
This is a development I welcome wholeheartedly. I do hope something similar will get started here in the U.S. For starters, gas prices have reached at unbelievable $4.19 per gallon in our city. I know gas prices are even worse elsewhere, just refusing to acknowledge it. Anyway, scooters would be a fun way to get around. I wonder, what if we even go simpler and restart using bicycles?
