Taking it up a notch: Works Electric unveils an urban assault vehicle of an electric scooter

Okay. Granted. This is a little different than the startups I usually cover. But once you see it, you’ll know why I felt the need to tell you about it. Check out the electric scooter that Portland’s Works Electric just released.

The locally sourced and manufactured scooter—dubbed the “Rover”—is quite a sight to behold.


We set out to build the World’s greatest compact electric vehicle available, and as far as we can tell, we’ve succeeded. The Rover is fun, safe, and easy to operate; and with a maximum range of 36 miles and a top speed of 33 mph, it meets all the demands of everyday commuting and then some.

There are two versions of the Rover, each priced in the range of $5000.
