This product niche has mushroomed in the past couple of years. Also know as powerboards, although this term can be confusing as some "powerboards" have a stand-up handle which I think of as a scooter. Electric skateboard producers seem to appear and disappear more frequently than the producers of larger vehicles, probably because start-up costs are relatively low, but market penetration is difficult, especially in North America for such vehicles. Therefore, this page will probably be continuously out of date, no matter how often I update it. Any additions, corrections and contributions are always welcome.
