Over two years ago I test drove (and was carried by) a funky electric scooter made by San Francisco-based startup Lit Motors that carried large amounts of cargo and could fold down into a small size (see that video below). It was just a prototype back then, but on Wednesday the startup launched a new version of that e-scooter with a brand new Kickstarter campaign.
The scooter — now dubbed Kubo — looks like a cross between the box-carrying first prototype and a more classic 60’s style Vespa, with a curvy front and retro-looking stylings. Other than the fact that it’s 100 percent electric, the main unique feature about it is that you can fit a large 22 square inch box in its center, and it has a 300 lb capacity (for both cargo and rider). They seemed to have scrubbed the folding function from this version.
