Personal E-Mobility Devices include the following product types:
A hoverboard is a self-propelled two-wheel electric device that is powered by an onboard battery pack. It has two wheels and a board between the wheels for the rider to stand and balance on. The rider shifts his/her weight to move the device in the desired direction. These devices have no handlebars.
A monorover or an electric unicycle (e-unicycle) is a self-propelled electric device powered by an onboard battery pack. It has one or two centrally-located wheels with small platforms on either side, for the rider to stand on during operation. The rider shifts his/her weight to move the device in the desired direction. There are no handlebars or seats on self-propelled two-wheeled devices with a maximum design speed of 6 km/h.
An electric skateboard has four wheels and an added battery pack with a power system to aid riders with added torque while travelling. An electric skateboard may have a handheld remote control to allow the rider to control the device.
An electrical scooter is an e-mobility device for personal transportation. It has no seat and may take a number of different forms, including foldable scooters and kickstand scooters.
Rideable scooters with seat (mopeds) have two or three wheels and a maximum speed of up to 45 km/h. Powered e-cycles have an electric motor and pedals for assistance, with maximum speed of up to 25 km/h. Both are used for personal transportation.
A self-balancing transport device may have one or two wheels. These devices are powered by a rechargeable battery pack and use the shifting weight of the rider for balance. Common examples of self-balancing transport devices include Segway-branded products and OneWheel-branded ones.
An electric bicycle, also called an e-bike, is a two-wheeled device used for personal transportation. Resembling an analog bicycle, these products have an added battery and a power system to aid the rider with added torque when traversing elevated or rough terrain.
An electric tricycle is equivalent to an electric bicycle, with the exception of an additional wheel.
A quadricycle is a four-wheeled light electric vehicle with a maximum speed of up to 45 km/h and is used for personal transportation.
