A hoverboard or an electric scooter is a self-propelled two-wheel electric device powered by an onboard battery pack with two wheels and a board between the wheels for the rider to stand and balance on. The user shifts his/her weight to move the device in the desired direction. There are no handlebars on self-propelled two-wheeled devices.
A monorover or an electric unicycle (e-unicycle) is a self-propelled electric device powered by an onboard battery pack with one or two centrally-located wheels with small platforms on either side for the rider to stand on during operation. The user shifts his/her weight to move the device in the desired direction. There are no handlebars on self-propelled two-wheeled devices.
An electric skateboard has four wheels and has an added battery pack and power system to aid riders with added torque while travelling. An electric skateboard may have a handheld remote control to allow the rider to control the device during use.
An electrical scooter may take a number of different forms: foldable scooters, kickstand scooters, and rideable scooters (e.g. mopeds). Electric scooters have limited range and a max speed of less than forty miles per hour. These products are popular for customers who wish to limit their carbon footprint while commuting, are not ready to make the commitment of an electric car, and have limited distances to travel.
A self-balancing transport device may have one or two wheels. These devices are powered by a rechargeable battery pack and use the shifting weight of the rider to balance the device. Common examples of self-balancing transport devices include Segway-branded products and OneWheel-branded products.
An electric bicycle, also called an e-bike, is a two-wheeled device used for personal transportation. Resembling an analog bicycle, these products have an added battery and power system to aid the rider with added torque when traversing elevated or rough terrain.
An electric tricycle is equivalent to an electric bicycle, but with the exception of an additional wheel.
