Is the Infinite Machine P1 the Tesla Cybertruck of Electric Scooters?

The machined minimalism of the Tesla Cybertruck is possibly the most divisive design in years, sporting angles and a finish that makes the DMC Delorean almost seem Isetta-ish. Wherever you fall in opinion, there’s no debate the design stirred up a great deal of hype and enthusiasm for its stark futurism, something the Infinite Machine P1 electric scooter’s sharply inspired two-wheeled transport hopes to reproduce.

Let’s begin with a subjective take about the P1’s design: compared to anxiety-inducing amalgamation of stainless-steel angled panels sheathing the Tesla Cybertruck, the P1’s smaller scale presents a more cohesive profile from all angles (at least in these press photos and videos).

With fewer surfaces to align than the unforgiving precision required of a truck-sized vehicle, the electric scooter’s aluminum and steel mono-chassis and front fascia give the appearance of a vectorized 80s Honda scooter. And that in our book is not a bad thing.

A pair of 72-volt 30-aH batteries powers the P1’s 6-kilowatt hub motor, with three speed modes accessible using a handlebar switch. Borrowing again from Tesla, the P1 also includes a red Turbo button to push it to its maximum 55 mph capabilities.

Cribbing from its 4-wheeled counterparts, the P1 forgoes a traditional instrument panel and is instead equipped with what almost appears likes an Apple iPad mini in landscape mode adhered to the handlebar dash. The all-digital display supports Wireless CarPlay – a first in its class, with a built-in speaker – and offers riders a clean and large GUI when accessing Maps/Google Maps (or their Spotify playlist).

On the topic of speakers, the P1 can be customized with an attachable, battery-powered speaker system, to transform it into a mobile boombox.

An optional rear trailer system offers extra hauling capacity.

The P1 is built around app integration, allowing remote locking/unlocking, theft prevention, tracking, and the all important ability to check on remaining battery power.

Two removable batteries power the P1 for up to 60 miles of range, with the option to add two more batteries for even more power.

The P1’s seat lifts to offer storage underneath, alongside other storage opportunities below the steering cluster, and between a rider’s legs, with the option to add additional side-saddle cargo modules.

With a top speed of 55 mph and estimated range of 60 miles per charge, the Infinite Machine P1 – available in Silver or Black – has its aspirations to appeal to urban commuters, bringing riders from point A to point B daily with the occasional C or D entering the equation without any range anxiety. At $10,000, Infinite Machine is putting out a pricey proposition, and you’ll need a Class M driver’s license to access Performance mode speeds past the standard 35mph. But you’ll be guaranteed plenty of attention riding upon this knife-like moped alongside the fact only 1,000 First Editions will be made to launch.
