evo-1000w-electric-scooterThe Evo 1000w Electric Scooter / Powerboard is this weeks featured product in our Eco-Friendly Transportation Series. If you're looking for a fun electric scooter that can move you along at up to decent 26 mph clip, at the same time being respectful of our environment, look no further than the Evo 1000w Electric Scooter. It's fast and yet efficient, and easy to ride and navigate to wherever you need to go.

I was most fortunate to get a chance to test drive the Evo 1000w Powerboard yesterday. At once, I found it to be a smart looking and top notch performing scooter, and it was stylish looking too, catching the envying looks of people nearby. What's more, I found it to be an extremely well built electric scooter, which made it a dream to ride around.

Packed with high quality, top of the line components, the Evo 1000w leaves its competitors behind in the dust, in my opinion. It has a beefy 1000 watt engine that packs a full one horsepower punch, making it move like a rocket. Just twist the throttle and off you go, with an engine that is at once quite responsive and powerful.

The world's largest offshore wind turbine generator has just been installed some 28 miles off the coast of Ostend, Belgium, and the massive structure is capable of generating a whopping six megawatts of power, enough to provide ample power to 5,000 households, a decent 15 percent more than today's turbines.

Working at the behest of Belwind Offshore Energy of Belgium, Alstom is the designer of this particularly efficient piece of oxygen-friendly technology. A French multinational leader in the world of power generation, transmission and rail infrastructure, Alstom is based in Levallois-Perret, which is just west of Paris.

x-treme-xb-210li-super-folding-electric-bikeThe X-Treme XB-210Li Super Folding Electric Bike is this weeks featured product in our Eco-Friendly Transportation Series.

Today I had the pleasure of taking X-Treme's XB-210Li Folding Electric Bike for a test run, and I've got to tell you, this is one sweet ride that will make you glad to abandon your gas guzzler/smog spewer for local trips and running errands about town, or as a quick get about on camping trips.

The XB-210Li is a medium sized bike, but it packs a lot of punch in its rear wheel mounted, 300 watt electric motor that can quickly get you up to speed at 15 mph unassisted. The lightweight battery pack, filled with seven lithium ion batteries, provides the 24 volts of juice for the XB-210Li, and it's easily removable for a swap out if you go beyond its 20-25 mile range (more, of course, if you pedal).

The tires are larger on the XB-210Li than its little brother, coming in at 16”. The rubber is high quality Kendra, and they are mounted on light but super strong aluminum rims. The larger tires make for a smooth and easy ride, and if you need to park somewhere and lock it up, you can even use the quick release on the front hub to remove the front rim and take it with you for extra security.

x-treme-xb-200li-super-folding-electric-bikeI enjoyed reviewing the X-Treme XB-200Li because being easy on the environment while moving around town is very important to me. In fact, that's why I avoid the use of my car whenever possible, and walk when I can. When I can't reach a place I need to be in a reasonable time by walking, I have come to rely on a trustworthy and speedy electric bike.

Today I got to test X-Treme's new XB-200Li super folding electric bike, and man, was I ever pleased with the build and performance of this bicycle. It's easy to haul around, coming in at only 39.5 lbs., and folds down to an extremely compact 25” x 31” x 7”, which can easily fit under a desk or in the back seat of a compact car. The folding feature is extremely cool. I've never seen an electric bike fold down to such a small size.

There was minor assembly required, but it was a snap and went pretty quickly. After adjusting the seat and handlebars, I was up and ready to go. I took off down my dead-end street and was amazed at how zippy and responsive this XB-200Li electric bike is.

X-Treme XMB-320 Three Wheel Electric Scooter Review: Eco-Friendly Transportation Series PDF Print E-mail

x-treme-xmb-320-three-wheel-electric-scooterX-Treme offers an electric scooter that is a perfect replacement for those smog spewing gas guzzlers: the XMB-320 three wheel electric scooter.

I was brought up in a large family that had lots of cars and trucks about the property. As I grew older and got educated, I came to realize what a wasteful lifestyle that really was. All that money spent on gas. All that pollution spewing out the tailpipe and contributing to the awful smog layer. Well, I made a promise to myself that when I had a place of my own, I would be more responsible and thoughtful. With the X-Treme XMB-320, I found it quite easy to put away my car and do my local chores in an environmentally responsible manner.

The XMB-320 electric scooter is powered by a 350 watt brushless electric motor, fed by three 12 amp sealed lead acid batteries. It's one of the fastest models on the block, with a top speed of about 10 mph, and it can last up to 20 miles on a single charge, which makes it extremely easy to go shopping, tool around to friends' houses for a visit, and just simply sightseeing from a new perspective.
