Current Motor Company

Scooters on the move

posted 8/24/2012

On the two-wheeled automotive front, Current Motor Company, developer of an electric scooter that it says will go sixty-five mph and fifty miles on a charge, has outgrown its showroom-factory-headquarters in a big tin can of a pole barn on Jackson Rd. Business operations have relocated to a more polished suite of offices on Varsity Dr., production has moved to Holt (near Lansing), and the company is finalizing plans to open its first real showroom and service center in Chicago, says John Harding, co-founder and chief product engineer. Harding says another showroom in Rio de Janeiro will follow late this year. Though the Varsity Dr. location is mainly an office, Harding says locals can always drop in and check out a bike there.

Current Motor Company, 4355 Varsity Dr., (877) 222-5115. Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and by appointment. www.currentmotor.com    (end of article)
