Mercedes has launched a new electric scooter to make last mile travel greener
If you have always wanted to use your own Benz style, it is likely to be much cheaper.Mercedes-benz today announced the unveiling of their latest model, which happens to be a folding electric scooter.
The scooter design was produced in collaboration with Swiss company Micro Mobility Systems AG.
Micro has been active in the field of micro-transportation for many years, and this is not even their first collaboration with a German car company.Last year, they teamed up with BMW to help the company create its own last-mile electric scooter.
But the model they developed with Mercedes seems stronger.It has a 500W peak rated hub motor in the front wheels, a dual wheel suspension, and even a 280Wh battery pack.While it's not necessarily the highest battery capacity in the world, it's normal for a last-mile scooter, which the company says should have a range of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles).
The range may be good for the last mile, but a top speed of 20 km/h (12 MPH) will make many riders beg for more.
The Mercedes-Benz eScooter also gets wheels that are a little bigger than some, and we've seen scooter wheels that measure 20 centimeters (8 inches) in diameter.
The scooter is even designed to be sturdy, and the company claims it can withstand up to 5, 000km (3,000 miles) of use.Assuming it's a true last-mile vehicle, you could make 1,500 trips.
