Boosted Boards developing electric motor powered skateboard

September 18th, 2012 by Richard Lord

Boosted Boards is developing an electric skateboard, dubbed the ‘world’s lightest electric vehicle’, with wireless control and regenerative braking. The Boosted Board weighs about 12 pounds.

The developers claim their electric skateboard can carry a passenger up a hill with a 15% gradient.

The Boosted Board’s electric motors can carry a passenger 6 miles and produce a top speed of 20 mph. The motors are powered by a lithium ion battery, which can be charged in two hours.

The developers are using Kickstarter to raise funds to bring their electric skateboard to market.
