“We are excited to introduce the Joust line of personal electric vehicles to North America. Joust transportation is fun, affordable, functional, and environmentally friendly - great for kids, students, and urban commuters,” explains Electric Scooter Galore’s Commerce Manager, Jerry Young. “With increased family fuel costs, Joust represents a great opportunity for families to manage their daily transportation budget and time.”

The initial Joust product offering is a personal transport unit that bridges the current gap between electric powered children’s toys and electric transportation. The Joust unit features a comfortable seated operating position, full suspension, pneumatic road tread tires on cast wheels, and a front disk/rear drum braking system, similar to many automobiles. Innovative hub motor technology is utilized for maximum efficiency and minimum maintenance. The Joust unit folds for easy storage and the unobtrusive design is perfect for mass transit user courtesy and convenience. Like all electric vehicles, Joust transportation units produce no polluting emissions during operation.

Joust units feature virtually silent operation and sophisticated electronic controls limit speed to 17mph, while extending battery life and increasing range. Operating range on a single charge varies with terrain and load but averages about 15 miles. A full recharge takes about 4 hours and costs about five cents creating the Joust unit’s per mile operating cost of about three tenths of cent per mile. That’s about one fortieth the fuel cost of a typical minivan. With speed controls, silent operation, and braking systems they are able to be sidewalk operated in most areas. Operating a Joust unit is much easier and less strenuous than bicycling, and it does not require special licensing.

Young continues, “Joust units provide a perfect, low cost option for providing young adults with the fun and freedom of personal transportation while reducing family fuel costs. Quiet, pollution free operation is well suited to campus transport and urban commuting while offering the safety of sidewalk operation. The gigantic relative savings in fuel costs compared to automobile based transport make the Joust unit a functional alternative for personal transportation needs.”
