It looks good, but since the actual average speed in cities is around 20km/h, what's wrong with a regular bicycle or a pedelec? 40km/h is too fast to ride in clogged cities anyway, and requires wearing a helmet + taking an issurance. Looks like a solution looking for a problem.

Looks like fun to ride.

Electric bicycles are simpler and way better. Anyone who is not coordinated enough to ride in 2 wheel should not be riding Things like higher riding position for visibility, pedaling, regenerative brakes. And way way simpler parts.

Your title, "EV4 four-wheel-drive electric scooter leans into turns" is a bit misleading, as the vehicle is only two-wheel-drive, by all appearances. Or am I missing something? I love the design, other than the seeming complexity. However, I think the riding position is too upright. I'd think it would be more comfortable with a little more of a recumbent position. Ramp this up a notch or two to make it keep up with traffic on neighborhood roads (no highway use) and add some weather protection, and you've got a contender for a good suburbs commuter.

Neat toy, but what good is a slow 25mph vehicle for? So up hill it will likely be doing 15mph? It's not as practical as a bicycle and just as slow as one. Wish them the best.

I LIKE IT. IT LOOKS LIKE FUN, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE BALANCED INDIVIDUALS. HOWEVER DON'T GEET CAUGHT RIDING IT IN THE USA. IT HAS 4 WHEELS AND POWER AND IS NOT EXEMPT LIKE THE ELECTRIC POWERED BIKES. THE LAW IS SPECIFIC, AS TO; LESS THAN 1 HP, LESS THAN 4 WHEELS, STAY UNDER 20 MPH. TOO EXPENSIVE TOO. ONE COULD BUY A NICE MOTO FOR THAT KIND OF MONEY!

An interesting buggy but not legal to ride hardly anywhere and about 3x overpriced for what you get. I can buy a nice motorcycle for the price of this thing. Why do all new electric assisted bikes, trikes and buggies cost so much? There isn't that much materials or labor in one and the motor systems don't cost very much either. My tadpole trike will do the same things this will, is more comfortable, has usable pedals and goes just as fast around a corner without needing tilting capabilities.... I have less than $1k in it.

Looks great, looks fun, but.... it looks to me that it will need to be registered with the additional cost, plus of course insurance. But at $7,000 there are a lot of cheaper solutions to this problem, like a bike or even a small car.
