Hyundai foldable electric Ioniq scooter will make your commute awesome

Comments Off on Hyundai foldable electric Ioniq scooter will make your commute awesome

Hyundai is taking an inventive approach to mobility with a foldable electric Ioniq scooter . The cool “first and last mile mobility” Ioniq vehicle that makes your 2000 Razor scooter jealous can be stored in the Ioniq Electric car’s front door. Unveiled at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the shiny scooter is targeted for transportation after parking or en route to a public transit station. Hyundai’s tackling hybrid and electric travel through Project Ioniq , and the new scooter is one of their latest concepts. There’s scant information on the scooter as of now, but Hyundai used the terms ‘lightweight’ and ‘portable’ prominently in their announcement. We don’t know how fast or far it will travel, or how much it will cost. Related: Hyundai’s new hybrid Ioniq is the first car to take on the Toyota Prius Hyundai did dangle a few tantalizing details, such as the digital dashboard on the scooter’s handle. Users can check their battery life, speed, and range on the digital dashboard. Scrolling up or down on a thumb switch lets a rider accelerate or brake, or they can brake via a rear wheel pad. Riders can unfold and fold up the scooter with one hand. Front and rear lights keep a rider safe, and there are even sensors incorporated so the scooter only switches to riding mode when a person is safely on the device. The scooter can be charged while in the electric car’s front door. In a statement, Head of Hyundai Motor Central Advanced Research and Engineering Institute Tae Won Lim said, “As we look ahead, our vision is to be a world leader in hyper-connected living and to offer our customers seamless, end-to-end transport solutions.” We don’t yet know when – or if – Hyundai will release the Ioniq scooter.

Smartscooter maker Gogoro launches faster, more powerful electric S model

Comments Off on Smartscooter maker Gogoro launches faster, more powerful electric S model

The Gogoro S model features a new G1 S motor with an output of 7.2 kW (at 5,000 RPM) compared to just 6.4 kW from the company’s regular model. The Gogoro S is also a speedy little sportster, with the ability to accelerate from zero to 31 mph (50 km/h) in 3.7 seconds, shaving a full half-second off the previous model’s time. This powerful electric scooter could get a rider into real trouble (and fast), so Gogoro capped its max speed at 59 mph for safety’s sake. Related: Gogoro launches electric scooter sharing in Berlin; teams up with Bosch’s Coup Gogoro first made a splash in the transportation world in early 2015 when it launched early models of electric smart scooters featuring fast-swappable batteries. In an effort to further boost sales, the company installed a series of GoStations across Taiwan (240 in total) where riders can grab a fully-charged battery and leave their drained battery behind to be charged for another scooterist. In the short time since its launch, the company has achieved booming success and the future is bright. Gogoro has already sold over 15,000 Smartscooters in Taiwan and estimates its customers have racked up 18.6 million miles on the battery-swapping scooters. Gogoro estimates that 9,000 battery swaps take place each day, proving that riders are keen to take advantage of the on-the-go convenience of the company’s GoStations. So far, the company estimates its riders have saved the equivalent of nearly 400,000 gallons of gasoline and 2,700 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, thanks to the scooters’ rechargeable batteries. + Gogoro Images via Gogoro
