Boosted Debuts A Scooter
Boosted, the company known for its lineup of electric skateboards, has debuted a new product, this time not a new skateboard, but an electric scooter. The new scooter, Boosted Rev has been made available for pre-order. This debut comes a few months after Boosted raised $60 million in Series B funding led by Khosla Ventures.
Features of the Boosted Rev include:
- 24 mph top speed.
- 22 miles range.
- LED display.
- Electric brakes.
- Custom folding mechanism.
- A Throttle Wheel — that allows for one-handed acceleration and braking by a roll of the thumb.
Boosted claims the new scooter was put through “rigorous mechanical, electrical, and environmental tests that greatly exceed industry standards for light electric vehicles”. The Boosted Rev retails for $1,600 and will begin shipping in and outside the U.S. by summer.
