The Bolt is an electric skateboard, claimed to be the world's smallest and lightest, that differentiates itself from other electric skateboards by virtue of its compactness. Conceived by Italian Lorenzo Cella, who grew tired of an hour-and-a-half commute by foot to university each day, the Bolt grew out of a desire to create a portable urban transportation solution.

This electric skateboard is controlled by a hand-held remote control with a joystick that riders can use to accelerate and brake. It is powered by a 2,000 Watt motor that offers a top speed of 21 km/h. This battery delivers a range of 10 km and doesn't cost much to be charged -- a year's worth of recharging costs as little as $5.

This skateboard is ideal for people looking for a fun and portable urban transportation solution for medium to long distance commutes.
