Vectrix Electric Maxi-Scooter Review

This American designed - Polish built scooter looks great but it has one major drawback and that is its' range of 68 miles although I suppose for an inner-city commute it would be fine and could be left on charge at the workplace. 
 
It takes just two hours for its Nickel Metal Hydride battery to reach 80 per cent charge and with full juice, the Maxi can motor on for a range of 68 miles, although at full tilt all the way, that would reduce considerably. The real boon here, though, is the running costs: just £157-worth of electricity will propel you 12,000 miles and exemption from road tax and congestion charging will save you still more.
