This has also paved way for many startups to try their hand in building the vehicle of the future. The latest one to join the bandwagon is a British company called Zapp, which recently released a teaser image of their upcoming high-performance scooter - the i300.
The teaser image gives us an idea of the scooter’s design, while the press release mentions some very interesting details. The scooter is likely to sport a sleek design, with an unusual front apron and a small flyscreen. Behind it sits a digital display with five prominent buttons. Moving towards the rear, you'll see a unique zig-zag-shaped frame, which we think is supposed to resemble a lightning symbol. The scooter also features chunky 12-inch alloy wheels.
