South Pasadena CA – November 20, 2008 -- UrbanScooters.com is proud to announce the release of the new Go-Ped I-Ped Electric Scooter. With the inclusion of Lithium-Ion batteries and a 1000+ watt motor, I-Peds are the most compact, advanced, and high-quality electric scooters on the market. The Lithium-Ion batteries last 10 times longer than sealed-lead-acid (SLA) batteries, weighs half as much at half the size, and are more powerful than the SLA batteries used on most other scooters. The GoPed I-Ped is ideal for use in the busy urban setting as it is light enough to carry like a briefcase, and virtually silent when in use. The fact that this scooter is electric makes it the number one candidate for commuters that are using public transportation because other scooters are not allowed on trains or busses. The compact design allows the I-Ped to easily fold and stow away under the seats of trains and busses.
South Pasadena CA – November 12, 2008 – The recent economic downturn has caused a shift in the electric scooter and bike buyer behavior. Electric scooters and bikes, typically purchased for recreational use, are experiencing an upswing in sales for transportation use. Web-based retailer, UrbanScooters.com, has noted a shift in buyer behavior. According to UrbanScooters.com President, Frank Minero, “…a dramatic change. It used to be the majority of customers wanted scooters for recreation or their kids. Now two of every three calls we get are from folks looking for a cheaper way to get to work.”
