By combining the best elements of recent mobility concepts with proven technology, the Ecooter could well be the first personal mobility vehicle to reach city streets.

The passenger sits behind the driver, like in the Commuter Cars Tango, making it narrow enough to filter. And like that car, and several others, it uses lithium ion batteries to give it a decent turn of speed, fast recharging times and a 60-mile range.

Of course, all of the above vehicles are united by one failing: their inability to rival the humble scooter in terms of price, practicality and even economy.
