    URB-E: The world’s most compact electric vehicle?

    The URB-E foldable electric scooter has a 20 mile range and 
    a top speed of 15 MPH. Fully charged in 4 hours and 
    weighing approx. 35 lbs, the URB-E is perfect for urban and 
    last mile commuting. Join the revolution!

    URB-E felt like a really awesome addition to my urban transportation arsenal. $1,500 is a lot to shell out, but the company just partnered with Wells Fargo to offer financing plans. You can pay for the URB-E in installments of $1.75 a day or $50 a month, making it far more approachable to the numerous teenagers who stopped me on the street to ask about it.
    The URB-E is a great alternative when a bike won’t do but you don’t want to upgrade to a Vespa or a full-on motorcycle, which are more expensive, have more overhead, and can’t be carried around. The range, handling, and flexibility are something I am really going to appreciate on my frequent treks to Manhattan’s financial district. I can reach that area by subway or ferry, but not without a 15- to 20-minute walk on both ends the ride — the "last mile" that makes urban commuting so frustrating. With the URB-E, I can accomplish the entire trip in 20 minutes, iced coffee in hand, phone fully charged, not breaking a sweat.
