Hyundai aims to make the journey from A to B easier and more seamless than ever. That means going beyond great vehicles, to getting you right to your exact destination. Last Mile Mobility refers to this last stretch of your journey, which can range from walking, micro-mobility vehicles, bike-sharing, transit and so on.
and fully electric.
Hyundai’s vision of Last Mile Mobility is a solution that fits effortlessly into your lifestyle. The Personal Electric Scooter fits neatly into compartments within our vehicles and is wirelessly charged via the vehicle, so that you can simply park, unfold and ride.
According to a recent study by McKinsey & Company, the ‘last mile mobility’ market in China, Europe and the USA is expected to grow to $500 billion by 2030. The possibility of a more connected city through these e-scooters is just around the corner.
The lightest foldable
The latest version of Hyundai Motor Group’s electric scooter features a 10.5 Ah lithium battery. This enables the scooter to achieve a top speed of 20km per hour and is sufficient to power the scooter for around 20km on a single charge.
Weighing around 7.7kg, the scooter is highly portable, while its unique and compact tri-folding design means it is lighter and more compact than any similar product. Enhancing its usability further, it features a digital display that shows battery status and speed; while, for nighttime riding, the new scooter is equipped with two stylishly-curved front LED headlights, and two rear tail lamps.
The 2019 model’s shift from front-wheel drive to rear-wheel drive is key in enhancing safety and stability as it positions weight near the rear. Additionally, the Group’s engineers have added suspension to the front wheel to provide a smoother ride, even on rough surfaces.
A regenerative braking system is being developed to increase the Personal Electric Scooter’s range by 7% (equivalent to about 1.5km).
