Green Overdrive: Lit Motor’s Electric Folding Scooter

While there are a growing number of electric scooter and motorcycle makers out there, there’s not many that are making a cargo-carrying, foldable version. San Francisco-based startup Lit Motors has been developing an electric scooter that can carry a large box (or a person) and can fold down into almost half its driving size. For our latest Green Overdrive show, we drove around with Lit Motor’s CEO Daniel Kim on the company’s electric cargo scooter, and also checked out a prototype of its upcoming electric two-wheel car. The scooter could be available in about 6 months in the U.S. and cost around $2,000 to $4,000, though Lit Motors is looking to focus mainly on selling a more low cost version of the scooter ($500 to $800) into developing markets like India and China.
