MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--Boosted, designer of the world’s first ultralight electric vehicles, announced it has expanded its award-winning Boosted board line, which now includes the Single, Dual and Dual+ models. The boards start at $999 and cover every type of rider -- from novice to expert -- who enjoys them for pure recreation or to improve their commute.
“Boosted boards let riders get around their city or campus faster and more efficiently than any other mode of transportation,” said Sanjay Dastoor, Boosted CEO and co-founder. “Incredible support from our early customers allowed us to scale our operation to reduce the cost of building boards, enabling more people to experience the thrill of the ride.”
Boosted boards are now available in three models:
- Boosted Single
- Boosted Dual
- Boosted Dual+
Free Upgrade & Extended Warranty for Current Customers
All Boosted riders who purchased a board prior to Nov. 6, 2014, will receive the upgraded Dual+ software at no cost. The upgrade, available for download in early 2015, improves the board’s top speed, acceleration, and braking performance.
In addition, Boosted riders who purchased a board prior to Nov. 6, 2014 will receive a retroactive increase in warranty coverage to one year from the date of shipment. All new Boosted boards are covered by a six-month warranty.
Price Match for Recent Customers
Boosted riders who purchased their board on or after Sept. 15, 2014, will receive a price adjustment to match the new price of the Dual+ model, up to a maximum of US$500. Eligible customers will receive an email with details from Boosted.
