There's an electric scooter revolution happening in Europe. 

In the past year or so, the rentable, battery-powered, two-wheeled vehicles have swarmed European cities like Paris, Brussels and Madrid. And Berlin, with some 5,000 e-scooters operating and more to come, is gunning for the title of Europe's e-scooter capital.
