Hyundai has developed a new prototype electric scooter that boasts rear-wheel drive, a highly-capable lithium battery and stylish front and rear lights.
The latest concept features in future Hyundai’s plans to enable first- and last-mile mobility through integrating the scooter with future Hyundai and Kia vehicles. When mounted on a vehicle, the scooter is charged automatically using electricity produced while driving, ensuring that the user can complete their journey seamlessly.
The electric scooter features a 10.5 Ah lithium battery. This enables the scooter to achieve a top speed of 20km per hour and is sufficient to power the scooter for around 20km on a single charge.
Weighing around 7.7kg, the scooter is portable, while its unique and compact tri-folding design means it is lighter and more compact than any similar product. Enhancing its usability further, it features a digital display that shows battery status and speed; while, for nighttime riding, the new scooter is equipped with two stylishly-curved front LED headlights, and two rear tail lamps.
Looking at further potential development, the Group plans to install a regenerative braking system to increase the scooter’s range by 7%.
