Bamboo electric scooter takes green to a whole new level


How can you make an electric scooter even more green? Make it out of bamboo! The concept of using bamboo as a construction material for vehicles is starting to gain a foothold, and Antoine Fritsch of the French firm Fritsch-Durisotti has unveiled the T20 electric scooter, which features an eco-friendly bamboo frame.

With a range of 25 miles and a top speed of 22 miles per hour, the T20 offers a stylish option for zipping around town. Or it would, but sadly it's only a concept design — Fritsch-Durisotti has no intention of actually putting the scooters into mainstream production. The T20 is part of the firm's research to "investigate themes exploring changing behaviors related to sustainable development."
