Sure, there are electric skateboards, but most of them are not designed to go off-road, that is unless…you’re talking about the Cycleage. It’s an innovative lightweight all-terrain electric skateboard with a super high ground clearance, patented multi-link independent suspension, and an ultra-light aluminum board sheathed in carbon fiber for the ultimate in portability with unmatched durability.

Sporting four 1000-watt brushless electric motors, each of them driving one of the board’s independently-suspended rubber-tired wheels, while power comes from a detachable lithium battery pack good for a maximum range of 14 miles on a single charge and top speed of 27 mph. A wireless handheld remote is used for acceleration and four-wheel braking.
Right now, the board is being crowdfunded, so a pledge of $1,980 reserves a 4WD model and $1,480 for the 2WD. However, if you want to be on the safe side and wait until actual production is completed, the MSRP is $3,699 / $2,699, respectively. Check it out here.
