Zapp i300

Zapp i300

This high performance electric scooter from UK-based Zapp leaves conventional commuter steeds choking on their particulates. In place of a fossil-fuel-guzzling, greenhouse-gas-belching engine, you find a 14kW motor – powered by two lightweight, laptop-sized lithium-ion batteries and capable of 587Nm of torque.

This sort of grunt, combined with an ultra-low-profile, nitrogen-filled rear tyre, is capable of propelling you from zero to 30mph in a none-too-shabby 2.4 seconds, with a range of 35 miles or so per battery, while regenerative braking recharges your bike as you ride.

And when you’ve run out of juice, simply unclip the batteries and plug them into any household socket. The i300 has customisable spec and a range of finishes, and costs about £5,250.
