Because UNU is an electric scooter, so the power generated by the electric motor channeled to its rear wheel and powered by a lithium-ion battery that can be recharged.
The UNU weighs just 58 kilograms and has a range of up-to 100 km. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/XZkrRj)
This electric scooter speed is limited only 28 mph (45 kph) and can travel up to 31 miles (49.89 km) on a full battery condition. But if the first battery runs out, then available battery backup can be used.
