Here you will find comparison charts of Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEVS) (the term used by the UK government). Other terms include ‘Powered Transporters’, ‘Rideables’ (possibly coined by Wired magazine). Suggested names from myself (Luc Hubert of the Peacemaker Foundation) are ‘Transportables’ (portable transport tools) & ‘Lightweight Portable Transport’ (LPT). Regardless of what you wish to call them here they are – some of the most popular & interesting transport gadgets in 2020.

INTERACTIVE ADJUSTABLE VERSION OF THE COMPARISON CHART
Shown below is an interactive version of the same chart displayed above. You can enter your own weightings (importance values) right here on this web page. The scores automatically adjust every time you enter a value & when complete each tool will have an overall score to show how suitable it is for you personally. Just replace the default weighting of 5 with your own weighting (from 1 to 10) & use the scroll bar to view the whole document. Your amendments will be reset if you leave this page.

We believe that we need to embrace lightweight portable transport to help slow global warming & boost people’s wellbeing through cleaner air & getting away from cars. If you agree & wish to see more electric devices such as scooters legalised then please sign this petition: http://chng.it/JgCQNW2pZW
