If you're looking for a new way to go 25km, you might want to keep your eyes on the Usurfer UM70 Electric Skateboard.

IT features Lead Acid Batteries (and with lead, you know they're good.. lol), you can recharge in 4-6 hours and you can go 20 km / hour. BOOM, that's pretty sweet.

Implications - While it may not be faster than a car, the motorized skateboard is a great example of a cheaper alternative to scooters and is more eco-friendly than a fuel-running car. These types of products allow companies to be more cost-efficient in production while attracting a new, younger demographic looking for a lowered travel time.
