This isTheFido, a fully electric scooter, said Gast, Owner of Fremont Motors,as he prepared his new invention for itsdebutat a Seattle coffee shop Friday night.

He said The Fido has a retro style with modern touches like a removable battery you cantake indoors to charge overnight or while at work and a cargo box that turns into a backpack.

There is already a new wave of scooters, gas and electric, that are zooming into local dealerships. All of them are hoping for a piece of the defiant streak that America consumers showed to help end the last great gas price crisis.
