Back in February, it was announced that Best Buy will start carrying the Brammo Enertia motorcycle at some of its West Coast locations this month. Now, it seems, the box store will not only be carrying the electric motorcycle, but a whole range of personal electric vehicles in the near future.
According to the BNET Auto Blog, Best Buy has confirmed this new business venture.
"We can confirm that Best Buy will be piloting electric-powered personal transportation products at some of its stores on the West Coast later this spring. The selection will include Brammo."
The Brammo Enertia is made of carbon-fiber, has a top speed of 50 mph and has a 45-mile range on a full charge. It costs $12,000, but is eligible for a 10 percent federal tax credit. Best Buy will treat the Enertia like any other consumer electronic sold by the store. The Geek Squad will perform repairs and maintenance,and electronic upgrades like on-board cameras that link to the internet will likely be available.
We'll be anxiously waiting to hear more details on this story, particularly the exact vehicles that Best Buy is looking to carry.
