Last year, Acton, Inc. made quite an impression with its spnKiX motorized skates, and it looks like the company has more personal vehicles in the works. The company has revealed a new electric motorbike called the M Scooter, which the company claims can fold up into about half its size for easier storage. Besides being a more compact and eco-friendly form of transport, Acton estimates that its electric scooter will cost less than US$0.10 per day to drive under normal use.
Much like the MOVEO from earlier this year, the M Scooter starts out as a full-sized vehicle, but can collapse into itself to form a smaller, easy-to-store package. In riding mode, the scooter measures 40.3 x 25.8 x 43.7 in (102.4 x 65.5 x 111 cm), but the rear wheels, steering column and seat fold together into a much tidier 38.3 x 20.5 x 30.9 in (97.3 x 52.1 x 78.5 cm). It will still weigh a hefty 70 lbs (31.8 kg) of course, so you probably won’t be carrying it all over town like a piece of luggage, but it will fit nicely into the trunk of a car or under a desk.
