Boosted Boards is looking to roll out what it claims to be the absolutely lightest electric vehicle on the planet, which isn’t much of a surprise as it is essentially a motorized skateboard. The company claims that it can hit speeds up to 20mph, and handle grades up to 15 percent. It can run six miles on a single charge, which could make it an option for daring commuters.
And it is still a true skateboard with serious bearings and other components – which help justify the $1,200 price point. The Boosted Board is currently looking at Kickstarter campaign to raise funds and get a boost to bring this thing out.
