Axios’ Adam Voiland, who first reported the news, notes that the electric unicycling is $6,000 to $10,000 cheaper than a Model 3.
The new unicycle uses the same engine, the same battery, and the same electric motor, and it’s being produced in a factory in Germany, he writes.
While the price tag is lower, the performance of the new unicycles is higher.
A Tesla Model S sedan will set you back $100,000.
An electric unibus will set the Tesla Model X $100 the same way.
The Model S will set $50,000 on the electric range.
The unicyclist in this story will be an off-road rider who’ll need a long-range, off-the-grid experience, not just a speed boost.
This will be a big difference.
