Today is the time for real product. Audi is stealing the spotlight with their first electric four-wheeled scooter, also named the E-Tron. Half skateboard, half scooter, the E-Tron scooter will take you approximately 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) and has a top speed of 20 kmh (12.5 mph). Fitted with the legally required LED lights: a headlight, daytime running light, rear light and brake light, the Audi e-tron Scooter weights twelve-kilogram (26-pound) and can be pulled like a trolley or if preferred folded up and conveniently stored in the back of the car.
“With the Audi e-tron Scooter, we appeal to customers who are on the move in cities, sustainably and multi-modally – and for whom style and functionality are important,” says Thorsten Schrader, project manager for micro-mobility at Audi. Although riders keep one hand on the handlebar, they control the scooter like a skateboard with their feet by shifting their weight. The movable axles with four wheels allow unusually tight curves. “Of course the e-tron Scooter also moves straight ahead. But the feeling of flow only comes when you start carving on asphalt – and that is surprisingly easy with our new concept.”
Priced at a whopping €2,000 EUR, or roughly $2,225 USD, the E-Tron scooter should go on sale at the end of 2020. And don’t forget to check 10 smallest folding electric bikes.
