Bird Rolls Out New Scooter, The Bird Three

Santa Monica-based micro-mobility company Bird has rolled out a new scooter, the Bird Three, which it claims is the "world's most eco-conscious scooter." According to Bird, the new scooter was specifically developed to offer up carbon emissions which are as low as possible, and features a new, 1kWh battery, which it says fixes the problem with current batteries, which it says require more frequent charging and leads to higher overall manufacturing emissions and require more vehicle miles traveled to retrieve, replace and recharge scooters. Other enhancements include dual independent brakes, self-sealing pneumatic tires, and more.
