From Urban Commuter Scooters to Autonomous EVs

Ultra-compact longboard designs, hydrogen fuel cell buses and autonomous electric airborne taxis are just a few of the innovative concepts that have been captured in the November 2016 eco transportation ideas.

When it comes to bikes, scooters and boards, many consumers are looking for designs that are either extremely small in size or boast the ability to fold into a more compact form. This includes examples like the Elos longboard and the Immotor Go scooter, which takes on a slim upright form when not in use.

In terms of some of the most forward-thinking and environmentally responsible vehicle developments that are coming from industry leaders, Uber is launching a pilot program for autonomous rideshare vehicles and the compact MINI Hybrid features both a combustion engine and an electric motor.
