A foldable electric scooter made of bamboo

Called TOM, the electric scooter is foldable, lightweight and has a bamboo body.

Currently a Kickstarter project by ToMove, the scooter was designed with urban mobility and transportability in mind. It can be folded in and out in 7 seconds, and when folded in, it can be transported like a trolley. The scooter weighs less than 20 kg.

The scooter has a bamboo body, a strong and lightweight material. The rest is made of mostly aluminium. The plastic content is reduced to under 10 per cent.

The scooter can be recharged using a normal electric socket, and it can be used as a power bank when on the go. The scooter is street legal though use may vary by region.
