Smart will unveil the new purely electrically driven escooter at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. This vehicle is a further solution for intelligent urban mobility. The Escooter will be painted in white with green accents like its four-wheeled big brother, and is introducing a fresh and surprising element into urban traffic.
The Escooter is driven by a disc-shaped wheel hub motor in the rear wheel, which offers a powerful 4 kW and transmits its power directly to the rear wheel. The smart escooter has a top speed of 45 km/h and offers an autonomy of up to 100 kilometers. The escooter can be charged at any standard household power socket, within three to five hours.
“With the escooter, we consistently continue our “vision smart”: even more driving fun in the city, even more adaptability to the respective living environment, even more flexibility - not least because it offers the possibility to be integrated in our car2go concept”, says Annette Winkler.
