Fresh off the heels of its first serious try in electric vehicles, Audi has declared that the E-tron scooter, also a concept electric scooter that you ride like a skateboard. The four-wheeled rideable could hit a max speed of 12.5 mph, weighs 26 lbs (12 kg), also has a range of approximately 12.5 miles (20 km). Audi intends to launch the scooter in late 2020 for approximately €2,000 (approximately $2,240).
Combining components of an e-scooter along with a skateboard results in a fairly unique-looking riding adventure. Rather than standing with your torso facing forward like you would with a regular scooter, you stand with your torso to the side, and then you only hold onto the front desk with one hand. Twisting this wheelchair controls acceleration and braking, leaving your other hand free to provide spinning signals, if you’re so inclined. Audi says that the riding experience feels like watching a wave, however we believe that should you’re not careful you might end up looking as if you’ve connected a Zimmer frame to the front of a Boosted Board.
Audi says that you could control the E-tron scooter in the trunk of your E-tron automobile.
The scooter’s battery has been built into its own handle, in which there’s also a little display that shows you its remaining fee level. There are also front and rear lights onto the scooter (like brake lights and a daytime running light), and Audi is promising Bluetooth connectivity that will allow you to customize the scooter and will offer theft protection.
Audi is the most recent automaker to get in the micromobility industry. VW comes with an electric scooter for its , General Motors is creating e-bikes, also Ford just acquired its very own dockless scooter firm .
Snark aside, Audi’s announcement indicates that it needs its e-scooter to match its lineup of E-tron automobiles. The business says it might give the scooter as an optional accessory for E-tron buyers who may then control the scooter inside their car trunks and then utilize it in order to scoot the final leg of their journey. But using a cost that’s higher than Boosted’s premium Rev scooter, and a top speed that’less than Bird’s frustratingly slow leasing scooter, Audi might have to do a bit more to receive its debut electrical scooter off the floor.
