STEVEN SEAGAL April, 2004
Mystical Hollywood martial arts and tough-guy action hero Steven Seagal puts his money where his mouth is. Paul Markham of Thailand-based Ecobrand Exim International - EV entrepreneur and distributor of the Harrier all-terrain ebike(based on the Ecolux Tornado - see below) confirmed that the actor and Zen-devotee recently paid a visit to Exim's offices in Bangyai, where he placed an order for various electric vehicles (bikes and scooters) for his 30,000 acre California ranch.
Steven Seagal and electric bike
He bought several evehicles/escooters from us for his 30,000 acre ranch in Siskiyou California and has offered to be put up on our website supporting our aims etc. and wants to help market the concept around the world.
He also bought some of my Terrano twin-motor e'scooters and has asked me to develop a large electric ATV which could seat maybe two and carry animal feed etc behind on a rack. (EVUK Ed: like the hunky but expensive Dunel electric ATV?)
When Solar Navigator conquers the world on solar power, and considering his role in 'Under Siege' we think Steven Seagal would make an excellent skipper. Storms, what storms? We pity any pirates he meets along the way. Why not check out the film rights.

Promising European Initiative, the E-Tour Project encourages car drivers from Rotterdam to Mykonos to leave I.C.E car at home and commute to work on electric bikes and scooters.
10 European cities and islands are involved in the scheme to encourage car drivers in urban areas to leave their car at home and buy or hire an electric scooter/electric bike to reduce noise levels and traffic/lung congestion.
In Barcelona, Stockholm, Rome, Capri and Mykonos the emphasis lies on demonstrating the advantages of fully-motorised electric scooters/mopeds whilst in cities with a well established bicycle culture, namely Rotterdam, Basel, Brussels, Mendrisio and Erlangen the emphasis is on promoting the advantages of power-assisted bicycles and further increasing bicycle use.
Rome boasts the biggest electric scooter rental service in the world with an impressive 400 electric scooters available for rental. Unfortunately at the moment only the lead acid rather than the new improved Ni-Zn 40-50 km per charge Lepton scooter is rentable. Grants are also provided by the capital to assist with the purchase of a new electric scooter substantially reducing the cost by approximately 50%.
