Be.e Biobased Electric Scooter

At first blush, the sound of an environmentally friendly scooter sounds about as thrilling as a trip to the lint museum. But hang on, oh purveyor of stray textile fibers. The Be.e electric scooter designed by Dutch firm Waarmakers is not only as green as it gets, it also zips off the line, getting you to 34 mph in 6 seconds.

The even crazier thing is it’s the first scooter to use biobased materials like hemp, flax, and bio-resin to build and shape the frame. The whisper quiet 4kW motor runs on a 2.5kWh battery that yields a 38 mile range. A complete charge takes no more than five hours. Gripping the road promises to be easy with the chunky tires, and the windscreen keeps you bug-free and safer in rainstorms. [Purchase]
