Boxx Electric Scooter – Looks as Comfortable as…a Box

Another entry in the electric scooter market is the Boxx scooter.  In its “upgrade” model , the scooter charges in 1 hour via a standard domestic plug and gives you up to 80 miles (129kms) travel.  Weighing 120 lbs (55 kg) with all aluminium construction the unit comes standard with ABS, traction control, drive by wire, oversized all LED dot lighting system, and two useful cargo holds. Options include a heated seat and extra battery pack to double your distance.

Though they claim “superior comfort ergonomics”, it certainly doesn’t look that comfortable to me. So going 80 miles in one go might be a bit ambitious,  and I’m guessing a pillion is completely out of the question.  I suspect you won’t be getting your knee down on that sweeping corner either 🙂

Customisable at Boxx the price starts at $3995.

    Nowhere on their website is a person pictured riding this thing. Because it probably looks silly riding this thing.

    One word: crosswind.

    May be we can put some of old desktops together with wheels and bars. BTW, definitely need very good helmet and body armor to ride this. I want to see sponge Bob riding this for esthetics.

    I looked at the website – this reeks of vaporware.

    Anyone with a real product would be demonstrating pre-production models in actual settings.

    Additionally, nobody gets it right the first time around. There should be videos/photos demonstrating the performance of at least two or three prototypes. As far as I can tell, everything I can find on this product is just a rendered 3D image.

    I wish they would put a person next to one of them. There is NO sense of scale!

    It looks like all the pictures on the website are of actual product. There is even a shot of 4 of them. I bet these guys been working on these for a long time. I am sure ENG models exist too. And I am sure they will release images with people and video’s. Having done this is the only way they could be this visible. So they must have.

    I saw one in action on the tv this morning. 4 grand is a steep price though.
