PHOENIX -- Forget those slow cumbersome scooters your grandmother used to get around. Mobility scooters by EWheels are speedy, sleek and stylish.

Andi Barness gave 3TV's Javier Soto and April Warnecke the lowdown as they took the sassy scooters for a spin around (and around and around) the 3TV parking lot.

Starting at $1,999, the scooters are equipped with front and rear lights, turn signals, a reverse switch, a horn and an alarm system. The seat is large and adjustable. There is locking storage underneath it, as well as a storage basket behind it.

As for speed, the scooters can go up to 15 mph, which means you'll almost be a red, blue, silver, orange, camo or hot pink blur as you tool around.

There is even a two-passenger model.

Custom versions are available, as well, including a Pretty in Pink model that has seriously blinged out rear-view mirrors and a back bumper that sparkles with Swarovski crystals.

EWheels is based in Phoenix and ship its scooters all over the county.
