Scooters were once thought to be the most convenient way to get around town, but apparently they’re nowhere near convenient enough! Thanks to Boxx Corp the problem has now been put to bed, with this meter high electric scooter!

The incredibly small size means there’s no need to find a lamp post to chain it to, just carry it inside and store it under the desk. On a single charge from a regular household power outlet the nifty scooter can rack up 80 miles at 35MPH! That may not sound fast, but you can be sure that many shits would be shat riding that close to the ground.

Boxx comes in 10 different colours and a choice of black or beige leather for the seat, and if that isn’t fancy enough for you you can add heated seating. Boxx also boasts ‘superior comfort ergonomics’, whatever that means. If it’s referring to the seat these people have never known what comfort means.

We wait eagerly for videos of Boxx in action. It looks pretty hard to handle with such a short wheel base. But I’m sure most of the joy would come not from riding but fitting it in the lift or slotting it onto a shelf. At 4000 USD though you might be better off getting a regular moped.
