Scooter made from bamboo and electric motor

This scooter is an ecological product that would significantly reduce pollution, and is called t2o. It differs very little from a conventional, except that it is electric, made ​​of bamboo and that the driver is seated, instead of it has to go on foot on a backup. This is the work of ecological scooter a French designer named Antoine Fritsch and has used bamboo to be a lightweight, durable and environmentally friendly. The t2o has an electric motor that allows him to reach a speed of 35 km / h and an autonomy of 40 km per charge.

the 't20' bamboo bike is a prototype by french designer antoine fritsch as part of an ongoing
research project to investigate themes exploring changing behaviors related to sustainable development.
although the body is made out of bamboo, other elements include cork, steel, aluminum and rubber.
surprisingly, the small motor, which is hidden under the footrest, can reach a cruising speed of
35 km/hr (21.7 mph) for a range of about 40 km/hr (24.8 mph). the acceleration works similar to
a scooter, employing manual power from the user to push the bike forward until it gets going,
while a hybrid cork structure acts as a fusion between a seat and backrest for a comfortable ride.
