Akumoto, the company with headquarters in Czech Republic, in collaboration with ČEZ, an electricity generation conglomerate, managed to create an electric scooter that set a new world record among its electric counterparts for the longest distance crossed in 24 hours.

This week the Akumoto electric scooter managed to register a figure of 1,136.3 kilometers (706.1 miles). The companies calculated that the trip needed only 40.8 kWh of electricity and cost only 190 Czech Korunas, which is about $10.35.

Lukáš Drahovzal, the sales manager at Akumoto, outlined that the test of the new electric scooter and the record it set was meant to illustrate that two-wheeled electric vehicle are more versatile than some might think.

ČEZ mentioned that in the near future there plans to carry out tests of electric vans and trucks.
