Smart to produce its eScooter

The 2010 Paris Motor saw several scooter concepts well-known automotive manufacturers. MINI came the Scooter E (which actually inspired very website), and from the eScooter concept. While were too clever in the naming, companies brought something interesting with them to

Since then, scooter have wondered when machines might come to While word is still out on Scooter E, Smart has announced their eScooter concept indeed see production.

While the original concept an all-you-can-eat technology buffet of an airbag, and even an iPhone for a it’s unlikely any of much of fancy gadgetry will it to final produciton. is that the production version go on sale in 2014 and be more and refined” than the concept at the 2010 Paris Motor

In a statement, Dr. Joachim Schmidt, Vice President of Sales and for Mercedes-Benz Cars, said decision in favor of the eScooter has made. With this we are adding a further important to our smart mobility concept for mobility in the future.”

As we have reported, the concept featured a lithium-ion battery which a 4 kW (5 hp / 5 PS) electric wheel hub motor. enabled the escooter to travel up to 100 km (62 at speeds up to 45 km/h (30 mph).

Smart hasn’t been on financial footing, well, . They’re having a tough time selling their so the R-D investment it would take to even a mediocre production scooter seems ripe for cuts, even if it is green-lit for the I hope it happens, but color me I’ll believe it when I see it.
