Sexy Electric Vehicle: Vespa Meets Tesla And Apple

by: Sharai Hoekema

One will be hard-pressed to go out on the street and not see one of them whizzing by. They are almost as common a sight as cars and bikes: scooters. Not rarely produced in crisp, eye-catching colors, and equipped with all kinds of attractive extras, this new model of electric transport is enjoying ever-increasing popularity.

Two Wheel Vehicles: Dubious Reputation

The romantic image of new, sexy Italian-blooded scooters has undoubtedly captured the imagination of many. Although just as many would be quick to highlight their not quite so attractive side: the riding style of the owners, sometimes showing a rather shocking absence of any kind of adherence to traffic rules, is frowned upon in most areas of the world. 

Most people will be familiar with the absolute chaos that reigns on the roads in South-East Asia, in countries such as Thailand and Vietnam, where entire families - including family pets - are crowded together on one tiny scooter to travel 'to and from.'

Not only worryingly hazardous for those riding these Motorised bicycles, but also dangerous for society as a whole. Road safety, the constant exhaust of fossil fuels, and other harmful emissions related to the production and use just a handful of the issues that accompanied the rising popularity of scooters.

New Sexy Electric Vehicle: The Appscooter

About the time that someone stood up and changed something about this. That ‘someone’ is the Dutch electric scooter company Bolt Mobility. Their mission? To protect those on the scooter, as well as those directly around it ánd the environment. Their brainchild? The AppScooter, a fully electric scooter that uses modular batteries - which provide it with a 240 km range. 

And while some electric scooter companies forgot about the essential part of their branding - the look and feel of the scooter itself -, it is clear that Bolt did not skimp on its design stage. This is probably why their end product is best described as the lovechild of a full-blooded Italian Vespa and a bold, adventurous Tesla. At the same time, it boasts some high-tech, smart features that would not be out of place in a James Bond movie.

Smartphone On Wheels

The AppScooter is a fully connected device and can be integrated with an iPhone or Android smartphone through a touchscreen. Through this connection, it provides its rider will all kinds of information and data, including turn-by-turn GPS navigation, easy music selection, and a hands-free call answering option.

Some might fear that this is making them more of a road hazard, but rest assured that this will not be the case: to control those functions, you do not have to let go of the handlebars. The controls are built-in those very same handlebars, allowing you to manage your display and smartphone for those functions that you need on your journey. Only when your scooter has come to a full stop, all other options offered by the system - including a wide range of Android apps - will be available to you.

And, in the true explorer’s spirit: the scooter has two integrated cameras that can be used to capture high-quality footage of your journeys. After finishing your recording, you can easily upload the video to your social media channels. Are you planning to go on quite a long ride? Rest assured that the 65L (2.3 cubic feet) storage area is more than enough (at about 4x the storage of a Vespa) to bring along all the things that you need.

Fully Electric Vehicle:  Vespa Meets Tesla And Apple

Most importantly: the AppScooter is clean. It is innovative in its ability to include up to six modular battery packs, each of those would provide it with a range of roughly 67 km - adding up to the total capacity of 240 km mentioned before. These batteries are made up of Panasonic cells that closely resemble those used by Tesla, as well as a similar double fuse design. To fully enjoy this range, you would have to be cruising somewhere around 20 km/h. It will not be your fastest scooter, but probably your most reliable and cleanest one.

What Lies Ahead?

While it is too early to say whether AppScooter is, in fact, that perfect product - the final production and delivery are slated to start sometime next year -, its unique mix of the cold, sophisticated Tesla attributes with the cute, authentic Vespa appeal and the hi-tech functionalities of the latest iPhone make it a product to watch. And with its competitive price of about $3,500, it does not quite require you to break the bank either. The AppScooter has a bright future ahead of it.

WhatsOrb embraces innovations. Electric bicycles are a ‘transit innovation’ from which the battery is still a hazard for the environment. With mining lithium and cobalt in the DR of Congo is often child labor involved. Currently, a conventional bicycle without motor and battery is still the environmental way of transportation.

Dear Sharai, please update your the article? The company which unveiled the scooter changed name to Etergo and the scooter received some designing updates (which did bring the range down to 240km at 20km/hour)...
The information mentioned in the article is 6+ months old, the 'real' scooter was launched in July, I was there (together with a few hundred others). Nevertheless fantastic concept & scooter! (with 60L storage :))
