In anticipation of a potential demand for electric vehicles, designer Mikael Shevelkin has created a stunning electric scooter concept designed specifically for the Virgin Group. Aptly named the “Virgin Scooter,” Shevelkin’s lightweight scooter concept is equipped with the basic essentials–signal lights for turning left and right, tail lights on the fender and under the seat to increase visibility in low-light conditions, bright headlights on the fender, and a battery pack that may be affixed or removed from the scooter’s underside. A sure head-turner is its steering mechanism that takes a unique shape, inspired by the natural steering of a horse.
