There’s something kind of wild about an electric vehicle called “Boomerbeast.” Maybe it’s just that the name conjures up images of some insane three-wheel contraption concocted for the first “Mad Max” movie released in ‘79. Though, it’s clear from a PRNewswire release, highlighting the second iteration of the mobility scooter, that the Daymak Boomerbeast 2 is more akin to something you’d find in the rumored next sequel of the road warrior franchise.
- The Daymak Boomerbeast is the first mobility scooter capable of recharging in just 20 minutes with a lithium battery.
- The new Boomerbeast comes in three new models – Standard, Deluxe and Ultimate.
- The Daymak Boomerbeast Deluxe features 60v40ah lithium-ion battery and has a driving range of about 37 miles.

Building on its commitment to light electric vehicles, Daymak has introduced its new Boomerbeast 2.
The latest model of the electric mobility scooter is the first vehicle of its kind to feature fast-charging battery technology. Available in three different models, the Daymak Boomerbeast 2 can reach a full charge in just 20 minutes, using a regular power outlet. The new Boomerbeast Deluxe model, features a 60-volt/40-amp-hour lithium-ion battery pack, with a driving range of about 37 miles. The Standard model is equipped with a 60-volt/30-amp-hour lead acid battery pack with about a 31-mile driving range.
The premium Boomerbeast Ultimate Titanate model is powered by a 60-volt/25-amp-hour lithium-titanate battery, with a driving range of 31 miles. Engineered to be the most capable off-roader of the three models, the Ultimate Titanate’s motor puts out 1200 watts, giving the electric scooter a lot of torque to tackle tougher terrains and climbs.
The Boomerbeast has also been lowered and shorten a tad bit to make the ride more stable and comfortable.
Pricing for the Boomerbeast 2 starts at around ($2,647 US) for the Standard model and around ($4,161 US) for the custom-built Deluxe model. Pricing on the Ultimate Titanate model, due in 2020, has not been announced yet by the Toronto-based Daymak.
WHY THIS MATTERS
“Mad Max” references aside, the Daymak Boomerbeast 2 is a true testament to how far light electric vehicle technology has evolved over the years. The mobile electric scooter’s fast-charging capabilities also hint at the potential for even greater innovations with personal EVs in the future.
