Another direction in electric vehicles is toward two- and three-seaters. Here is a Vectrix VX-3 electric scooter which is designed as a sort of midpoint between a scooter and a motorcycle. It's able to go 50 miles to 80 miles on a charge and hit a top speed of 68 miles per hour. The company expects it will cost about $15,000. Apart from scooters and motorcycles, electric bicycles are an area of expected growth, particularly in Asia where millions of units have already been sold.
