car models from Hyundai and Kia are likely to come with a personal electric
scooter that will enable first and last mile connectivity. So will India see
such an e scooter with your Hyundai or Kia car? Well, only time will tell.
Motor Group has developed a new prototype electric scooter. Building on its
initial concept presented at CES 2017, the new model boasts rear-wheel drive, a
highly-capable lithium battery and stylish front and rear lights.
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.
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
at further potential development, the Group plans to install a regenerative
braking system to increase the scooter’s range by 7%.
latest concept features in future Hyundai Motor Group plans to enable first-
and last-mile mobility through integrating the scooter with future Hyundai and
Kia vehicles. When mounted on a vehicle, the scooter is charged automatically
using electricity produced while driving, ensuring that the user can complete
their journey seamlessly.
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.
Hyun, head of Hyundai Motor Group Robotics Team, said: “This is the
vehicle-mounted personal scooter which could be featured in future Hyundai
Motor Group vehicles. We want to make our customers’ lives as easy and
enjoyable as possible. Our personal electric scooter makes first- and last-mile
commuting a joy, while helping to reduce congestion and emissions in city centres.”
ongoing efforts to provide customers with last mile transportation align with
trends highlighted in research data by global consultancy, McKinsey &
Company. It showed that the ‘Last Mile Mobility’ market in the US, Europe, and
China is expected to grow to 500 Billion USD by 2030.
