Bird introduces a more affordable, foldable Air electric scooter that costs $599
If the premium Bird One does not meet your commuting needs, Bird will offer a more reasonably priced electric scooter in the store.The travel company has released a custom-made Bird Air electric scooter that costs just $599 but offers only a few extras.The foldable design is a clear selling point and makes sense for urban commuting, but it also has' never deflated 'tires and an aluminum frame that is reportedly strong enough to withstand daily use.
You can expect a moderate top speed of 16MPH and a range of 16 miles.So, it doesn't last as long as 25 miles.But it should cover urban travel.
The Air is now available through Target in the U.S. and will arrive in Bird's official stores "in the next few days."International service will begin sometime in November.
The new scooter fills a gap in Byrd's lineup and will make it easier to use if you want your own two-wheeler instead of renting a car.For Bird, it is also a defense against the changing world of electric scooters.It was cheaper to buy a low-cost scooter directly than to continue to rent Byrd's machine for regular trips.The Air ensures that Bird gets at least some of your money, even if you miss out on future rent.
