The scooter will be powered by a 10.5 Ah lithium battery which gives it a range of 20 kilometres and a top speed of 20 kmph. All the power is sent to the rear wheels, and the company also has plans to install regenerative braking that could increase the range by seven per cent. The e-scooter is equipped with suspension in the front.

We want to make our customers' lives as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our personal electric scooter makes first- and last-mile commuting joy while helping to reduce congestion and emissions in city centres."
