The hubless wheels are fitted with all-enveloping cowls which presumably help reduce drag while allowing for a small contact patch at the very bottom of the wheel.

Electric scooter

October 13, 2009
The alluring aspect of concept vehicles, apart from being clean and green, is that they just give the glimpse of the modes of transportation, which of course is mesmerizing, in the days to come. Brainchild of Tai Chiem, the “Movito” is yet another sustainable electric scooter of the future that claims the top spot in the “Create the future Design Contest” organized by NASA. Comprised with two modular parts, an upper scooter chassis and a base, the Movito generates power from a carbon-cutting in-wheel electric motor, placed at the base, which can be removed (or aligned in parallel, for that matter) to create a two-seater vehicle. The modular base of the vehicle can generate force through rechargeable batteries as well. The in-wheel motor also supports a slim chassis that helps in reducing the weight of the scooter to a certain extent. Moreover, the urban vehicle comes fully integrated with a GPS system with a touchscreen interface, navigating you through the complex web of roads smoothly and safely.
