This particular appliance is called the Boxx, ... can't imagine why. It has electric power and 2 wheel drive, an integrated kickstand and internal storage compartments. It weighs 120 pounds. It will go either 40 or 80 miles, depending on the core you choose, which I imagine means what battery configuration is chosen at a speed limited to 35 miles per hour. Price is $3995.
BOXX Corp. traces the value basis of its craft to superior design engineering as its core business operation, applying deep industry experience and knowledge to the development of product and industry technology firsts.
Who will buy this? My guess is an urban, trendy, hipster who has limited travel needs, dresses in the latest metrosexual garb and lives somewhere on the west coast. I'm not joking, I'm serious, I think a person exactly like that is their market. Maybe the designers found their inspiration here.
You can expect to see more of this, not necessarily this particular company or model, but this kind of thinking. Once you have batteries and electric motors the requirements change, concerns about air cooling, gasoline or all of the usual necessities go away so we start to see things like the Boxx.
I guess these designers have a vision, ...
Thanks for the tip, Dave.
