The Commute-Case, an electric scooter from Green Energy Motors


It is the Swiss Army knife of electric scooters: it can change from a scooter to a trolley to a briefcase. With a cup holder and room for documents…

The Commute-Case will make you smile, but what if its creators are on to something? With a removable lithium battery that can be recharged in up to one hour, it has a range of 25 miles and weighs only 27 lbs. Yes its top speed is only 12.5 mph, but it can be ridden like a scooter, or you can wheel it behind you like a airplane luggage, or you can carry it like an briefcase measuring 18” x 13” x 4”. Power comes from a 1000 watt DC motor.

How legal is it on the road? Green Energy Motors says that the Commute-Case is legal in all 50 states, because it is classified as a consumer product, rather than a motor vehicle. Nevertheless, it comes equipped with a throttle and lever brakes, a Led headlight and a Led rear light, an electronic horn and a cup holder.

Green Energy Motors suggests several uses for its product. As an Alternative Neighborhood Vehicle (ANV), it can get you quickly to local destinations near your home. It can also be a great emergency back up vehicle that can easily fit in the trunk of your car, or be used inside large corporate, industrial or government buildings.
