Of course, this wouldn’t be much of a PEV review website without an honourable mention of hoverboards. Although somewhat inspired by the Segway, and for the most part targeted towards children and teenagers, these were some of the first mainstream personal e-vehicles available. A variety of models feature lights, Bluetooth speakers, self-balancing technology and more. Typically, these models remain unsuitable for anything outside of casual use. However, we’ve still found a number of high-performance models; ranging from more off-road hoverboards to conventional Segways.
Last but not least in our range of PEV reviews, electric skateboard. We’ve ridden a number of these brilliant boards, often striking a balance between great fun, whilst also a commuters choice. Like eScooters, these eSkateboards are highly agile, lightweight and convenient. Alongside this, they further claim great ranges of ~20 miles and rapid charge times. These boards generally modelled after longboards, however some quirky electric short boards are available too.
