Usain Bolt Launches Tiny EV
Saying his travels around the world have made it clear cities need help with congestion, retired world-record-holding sprinter Usain Bolt last week launched his own vehicle: a two-seater, electric car with a suggested price of $9999.
Delivery of the Bolt Nano is scheduled to begin in 2020. It will feature a swappable battery and seat two passengers–one in front and one behind. Four will fit in a traditional parking space. It will be all-electric and zero-emissions. Orders are being accepted now.
The company also launched a new e-scooter business in Paris. Users there find and pay for the scooters with an app, and the company says the vehicles are completely recyclable, including the batteries.
