A new electric vehicle has started its journey on the crowd funding website Kickstarter this week, which takes the form of a longboard skateboard, which has a range of around 6 miles, on a full charge.
The vehicle is called Boosted Board and is equipped with a 2000 watts (2.6 horsepower) electric engine, which is attached to the longboard. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Boost Boards project and see it in action.
Features of the Boost Board include, twin brushless motors providing extra powerful relative to their size and weight, when compared to DC motors. Together with a Lithium battery setup and a fast charging feature, which goes from empty to full in less than two hours.
“We started with our favorite longboard components, like a Loaded Vanguard, Bear Grizzly 852s, Otang 80A In Heats, and Jehu bearings. While the final product’s trucks may change, the rest of those components will be there. We don’t believe that adding a motor means compromising your setup.”
So if you think Boost Board is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Boost Board become a reality.
