The Hyundai Motor Group has developed a new prototype electric scooter with rear-wheel drive, a highly capable lithium battery and stylish front and rear lights. It also has suspension on the front wheel in order to provide a smooth ride, even on rough surfaces.

The latest concept features in Hyundai Motor Group plans to enable first- and last-mile mobility by 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 users can complete their journeys seamlessly.

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 20 km per hour and is sufficient to power the scooter for around 20 km on a single charge.

Weighing around 7,7 kg, the scooter is highly portable, while its unique and compact tri-folding design means it is lighter and more compact than any similar product.

The 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 United States, Europe, and China is expected to grow to US$ 500 billion (around R7,4 trillion) by 2030.

My friends call me a glomad (a global nomad lest you don’t get it). That’s a particularly apt word, because I am always trawling all corners of the globe, looking for stories. As a result, I have slept in some seriously strange places – on a bed of ice in the Arctic circle, on the floor in a traditional Japanese hotel, on the sand dunes in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan … and even on the floor of a Thai cargo ship. Mostly however I tend to sleep on aircraft (if I had a dog, he would bark at me when I eventually come home). I am passionate about trucks, cars, travel, food, wine, people and hugs – so I write about all these things. Except the hugs.
