British company builds “super run” for electric scooters: starting at $ 5,000
According to foreign media reports, hypercar (supercar) is a term used in the automotive field, which refers to a sports car with high power output and outstanding appearance. So what does it mean when the prefix of the word --hyper is added to another means of transportation, such as a scooter? For D-Fly Group, headquartered in London, this means "introducing 'automotive-grade' manufacturing, advanced materials, cutting-edge engineering and technology into the field of micro mobility."
The company claims that its new electric scooter, Dragonfly, can do just that.
So what makes it known as a hyperscooter? Obviously, high-quality materials such as carbon fiber, 7000 series aviation-grade aluminum, and paulownia wood cannot run away. And its power system is naturally very powerful. Its twin engines can achieve speeds up to 38mph, traction control gives each wheel 1800 watts of power and very large torque. Buyers will have the option to upgrade to 28.5 miles. In addition, it will be equipped with a patent-pending "Full-Tilt" patent, inspired by Formula 1 racing.
In addition, Dragonfly will also be equipped with a 4.5-inch ultra-high-definition 4K display. Users can access applications, check the speed of scooters or turn to GPS navigation after pairing with a smartphone via Bluetooth. Speaking of Bluetooth, Dragonfly also has a "high quality" sound system.
Unfortunately, D-Fly has not yet announced the full price of this ultra-skateboard, only sharing the price of the basic model-$ 5,000 (three-round version) and $ 6,000 (four-round version). The company said that they will release full pricing between 2020 and 2025, when the product is close to market.
D-Fly was founded by British entrepreneur Jez Williman, who led one of the world's largest crowd control and cohort management companies. He later sold the company to a private equity group in 2008. His goal is electric scooters.
