• Smart finally unveils electricity-powered two-wheeler, the eScooter

  • Smart.jpgNot too long ago, we came across a few sketches of what would soon be Smart’s smallest creation ever, an electric scooter. It’s finally time for the real thing. The company unveiled the scooter before the Paris Motor Show, earlier than expected. The eScooter, by Smart, a division of Daimler, is powered completely by electricity and uses a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack cozily nestled behind the paneling in the foot area. Once charged up fully, this scooter can go a whole 100 kilometers (over 60 miles). Taking just three to five hours to juice up from a standard household power socket, the scooter uses a disc-shaped wheel hub motor in the rear wheel with an output of 4 kW. The eScooter is capable of reaching speeds of up to 45 km/h or 28mph.

    And like every other vehicle that rolls out with an electric engine, we love the clean and green eScooter too!
