Briefcase Scooter Is The Ultimate Commuter Tool [Video]

Cycling to work with a briefcase in hand is a challenge for even the most experienced commuters, but what if your briefcase was your bicycle? Commute-Case is a new type of dual-function electric vehicle from Green Energy Motors that is easy to carry around when not in use. Unlike similar ideas, it actually functions as a briefcase, and can be transformed with just one press of a button.

The Commute-Case is powered by a lithium-ion battery that takes one hour to charge, and can run for up to 25 miles. It weighs 27 lbs, which is definitely heavier than the average briefcase, but it can support a weight of 275lbs, and reach a top speed of 12.5 mph.

You don’t need any vehicle registration or a driver’s license to pilot this particular electric vehicle, which makes it legal in all 50 states. If there is a particular day you don’t want to attract too much attention though, Commute-Case can also be used like a pull-along suitcase.


The Commute-Case is already available via the company’s website, where it can be yours for an eye-watering $2,995. That’s a special introductory offer as well, which means you can expect to pay $5,990 at full retail. Green Energy Motors wants to try and release the two-in-one electric vehicle by July 15th, and has an Indiegogo campaign planned for some time in April.

While it might be an environmentally-friendly option, the briefcase’s high price tag is likely to come up against some strong resistance. You could always try and put your legs into action with a traditional bicycle, which only requires some physical exertion to achieve very similar results.
