Are you looking to go places but you don’t want to spend for gas or arrive as a wheezing, sweaty mess? Check out what Boxx Corporation just put out. Called the Boxx, this unique box-on-two-wheels is basically an electric bike – or something that we all could be using for personal transportation in a few years if gas prices continue to go up. We say “personal” because it’s a bit too small to fit your date in, since the Boxx is only a meter long; just enough for (ideally) fitting one rider. Despite the size limitations, the 120-pound Boxx is still a pretty capable man-hauler, with a build that’s listed capable of taking 300 pounds of weight for a ride.
Technically, it’s not really a “bike” (if “bike” strictly means “bicycle” to you), since it doesn’t have pedals you can push on with. You could think of it as a compact electric moped instead, but with a far more interesting design. Built using aluminum to keep it light, the Boxx is equipped by a modular power system that can top out at 35 miles per hour, and sports a number of built-in modern goodies such as onboard storage, all-wheel drive and an anti-lock brakes, and LED lights.
The whole package starts at $3995 with a bike that’s powered by a standard CORE power module, which gives it a 40 mile range and a 4-hour charge. Other upgrades are available from here, starting with an upgraded CORE 2 power module (for an 80 mile range on a 1-hour charge) for $599, and a heated seat for $149.
External customizations are also available when you place your order, with ten colors and two styles to choose from. Check out Boxx’s configure page here.
