Ultra light-weight, foldable, electric scooter    

An ultra light-weight, foldable, electric scooter which could revolutionize urban traffic.

Overview

The ultra-light weight foldable scooter - environmentally conscious and economical, individual transport is becoming increasingly important. This is particularly facilitated by a foldable bicycle-weight scooter that becomes an everyday commodity by its flexibility, its simple storage, security, comfort, aesthetics and its ease of recharging. It is easy to use, it is efficient even in crowded urban traffic. It operates silently, with minimum energy consumption and does not pollute the environment directly.

The max. speed the scooter is capable to operate with is 45 km/h, and its range with a single charge is approximately 35 km (with double battery pack 70 km). It has in-wheel-motors in both wheels (two-wheel drive). Its folding can easily be mastered. In its folded state the scooter is the size of a large suitcase and it can be pulled similarly. Its weight is less than 25 kg, without the saddlebag that can be used as a back-pack. It requires no parking space; in a folded state it can be stored anywhere and no dirt will be released from the tyres or the drum. It is unique, no such compact solution scooter is available on the market today.

Primary Application of the Technology

Urban transportation, recreational purposes.

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Nowadays, environmentally conscious and economical, individual transport is becoming increasingly important. This is particularly facilitated by a foldable bicycle-weight scooter that becomes an everyday commodity by its flexibility, its simple storage, security, comfort, aesthetics or its ease of recharging. It is easy to use, it is efficient even in crowded urban traffic. It operates silently, with minimum energy consumption and does not pollute the environment directly.

Competitive Advantage

All similar vehicles contain only some of the main features of this scooter. In addition to the uniqueness, so far unseen innovative solutions -such as the monocoque body, the compact and dirt-free folding -, the product offers a wide range of positive features at the same time (light weight, comfortable sitting position, two-wheel drive, etc.). Its consumption is much lower than the recent state-of-the-art electric scooters: 2-2.5 kWh/100 km. The batteries can be charged from standard electric network as in the case of any household appliance. As such, it will be feasible in the near future, with a small investment, to ensure the operation of the scooter from renewable energy sources (solar, heat, wind energy) only: The scooter would therefore be autonomous, independent from the electricity network.
