Will a model like this turn into a near future best seller? Of course that’s still the question. Fact is however, that a great future is predicted for light e-scooters. And even more when they come foldable...
What you see here comes from Hungary. With a subsidy from the EU as well as other grants, design bureau Move in cooperation with the Antro Group designed a foldable light e-scooter which is called Moveo. It is equipped with lots of carbon parts and thus weighs only 25 kilograms.

The electric scooter is foldable into a (roll) suitcase size that can easily be pulled. Not only easy in public transport, but also at home for charging the Li-Ion battery.

The Moveo technical data indicate a top speed of 45 km/h. The range with a full battery is about 35 kilometers. Riding is comfortable with the backrest that simultaneously serves as a luggage rack. The retail price is expected to be around 3,000 euro. Move, the Hungarian (nonprofit) design company, is looking for investors that are able to take Moveo into the production stage.
