As the bumper sticker states, skateboarding is not a crime; but if it were, the $1,999 Evolve Carbon Series 2 in 1 Electric Skateboard would ensure you never got caught. With a deck constructed of carbon fiber and Kevlar, and outfitted with oversize all-terrain wheels and antilock brakes, the board is no prisoner to pavement (although it also comes with a set of 88 mm Orangatang Kegel street wheels as well). And the 350-watt, 5,500 rpm electric motor—with wireless Bluetooth remote—lets you kick back without kicking.
Tired of the Tesla? Have some real fun on your environmentally conscious commute with the EcoReco M5 e-scooter—a favorite childhood toy on steroids. Powered by a rechargeable lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery, the $1,250 scooter—with built-in rear suspension—can travel at a top speed of 20 mph for 20 miles on a single charge and can cover 500 miles at an electricity cost of only $1.
