Top 10 Space Saving Scooters
1. Jean Baptiste De Clercq
If you’re a real lazy bum who also happens to be a treehugger, this eco-friendly scooter concept is something you should definitely exchange for that horrible old rickety bicycle mod that makes your dog do all the work. Created by industrial designer Jean Baptiste De Clercq, the almost classy scooter called I/O is clean, compact and can also fold down to let you carry it in the subway or even in the elevators. The electric motor ensures that you can always take it to work with you and charge it in your office (on the company’s money) which helps you not only save up on gas money but also lets you score some real big brownie points with the new hot hippie temps too!

3. Chameleon Foldable Electric Scooter by Steve Sangik Lee
The Chameleon Foldable Electric Scooter actually derives its form from a novel thought. A majority of the scooters in the market only fold up when they have to be stored which may be the practical appeal of the sidewalk transport but it is decidedly less fun.
So designer Steve Sangik Lee decided to come with a concept that would allow the scooter to transform itself and enable an all-new type of usage. The Chameleon takes the already popular fold-down mechanism of the traditional scooter but makes it possible to integrate the chunky handlebar within the footrest’s body so that the scooter can transform itself into an off-road electric skateboard.
