Thanks to the MOVEO, Electric scooters just got cool again. For those who hate leaving their car parked in a side street, the company will let you rest easy while you’re off. When fully extended, the folding electric scooter features a traditional cushioned seat with back, two wheels, carbon-composite body, left and right side mirrors, and a handlebar. The lightweight vehicle also measures in at approx 55 pounds, with a top speed of 28 mph and a battery range of 21.75 miles per charge.
Designed by Hungary-based Antro Group, the scooter can fold up in approximately two minutes – making it ideal for urban dwellers who live in walk-up apartments or homes with no garages. MOVEO also features “closed design,” meaning users won’t come in touch with the greasy bits when extending and folding the vehicle.
After unveiling the final prototype since initial designs in 2008, Antro Group is currently in talks with potential partners to help bring MOVEO to consumer market. It is expected to produce 4,000 units per year with an estimated retail value between $3,100 to $4,600. No locked down availability date yet given. MOVEO will come in various colors, such as orange, blue, silver, and black.
