E-Max Electric Scooter Arrives from Germany

The E-Max is an electric scooter from Germany, which has been used in that country for many years. It is now available in the U.S., and several people have received their bikes. Early reports are quite positive — apparently the claimed performance (speed and range) are accurate and that the build quality is excellent. The batteries use a silicone chemistry rather lead, nickel, or lithium. The standard E-Max offers a 1500 Watt sealed brushless motor and a range up to 40 miles depending on rider/cargo weight and terrain. The e-Max has speeds up to 30 mph. It will 80% recharge in approximately 1.5 hours. The suggested retail price for this bike is $1,995. The Sports Edition option has a 2000 Watt sealed brushless motor, a custom controller and a new Hillock Seat. The suggested retail price for this bike is $2,750. :: E-Max USA, E-Max in Germany and E-Max.US
