Tesla is seeking to put a battery powered scooter onto the road in the near future, according to a report from The American Council on Science and Technology.
The council, which has been pushing for a new electric vehicle to replace gasoline-powered vehicles, said the company is working with a number of companies to build an electric scooter that would be able to travel at 30 to 40 miles per hour.
The council, an influential conservative group, said that the scooter, called the Powerpack, would be powered by a battery.
The company’s plan is to sell the scooters to ride-sharing companies and eventually to individuals, according the council.
While the council does not believe the electric scooters will ever be mass produced, the council said that electric scoots are likely to become popular in the next 10 to 20 years.
Tesla has made electric scoot models available to owners of Model S sedans and Model X SUV.
Tesla has also been working with car makers like Ford and Toyota to build more powerful electric vehicles.
There is still some way to go before electric scopes can be sold in mass quantities.
Tesla, which is looking to sell 1,000 units per year, said it needs about 300,000 to 400,000 of its first batch of electric scoped vehicles.
