Electric scooters to be distributed at Edwards Air Force base to help people get around


A Ford Motor Company-backed program to get Airmen and civilians around California’s Edwards Air Force Base is the most “Air Force” thing ever.

The solar-powered scooters generate around 750 watts per hour and have charging stations all over the base.

The scooters themselves, known as part of the “Spin” program backed by FoMoCo, cost fifteen cents a minute to ride after paying for a $1 unlock.

The idea of the scooters is to get personnel around the base in a more timely and environmentally-conscious fashion.

It is unknown what sort of protection gear must be worn while on the base, though photos imply bicycle helmets will suffice.

Edwards AFB is the first facility Spin has partnered with, and more are likely to come.
