Be.e ($TBA) is an electric scooter made from hemp. That sounds really cool, but it is also extremely environmentally green. The Be.e’s body is made from hemp, flax and bio-resin. The use of this material and the manufacturing process cuts the scooters carbon footprint and eliminates a number of parts needed to construct a standard scooter. The Be.e’s electric motor can be driven for two hours or up to 60 km and can be fully charged in under three hours.
