Sway Motorsports unveils the three-wheel electric scooter. Designed by IDEO toy-designer Joe Wilcox, whose prior experience goes back to NASA's Johnson Space Center and MIT on various space projects which give him a certain edge.
The prototype uses a 60V, 20-Ah lithium iron phosphate battery pack, giving a range of around 10 miles. But the good news is that Sway Motorsports intends the final version to sports a 60-Ah pack in order to achieve 30 miles.
Driven by a 3,500 W hub motor in the Sway's rear wheel, this 230 lb scooter has a top speed of 40 mph. The Sway's overall dimensions are 52 x 35 x 40 inches (1.32 x 0.89 x 1.02 m), and its three wheels are 10 inches in diameter.
All the lighting from the headlights to the turn signals (plus some decorative strip lighting) is LED-based.
