Hyundai is Planning to Make An E-Scooter


Hyundai is planning to get into the electric scooter business real soon. With emphasis on first- and last-minute mobility in the future, the parent group of Hyundai and Kia came up with a prototype e-scooter that boasts rear-wheel drive, front and rear lights, and a high-capacity lithium battery.

Hyundai says that shifting from front- to rear-wheel drive enhances the e-scooter’s safety and stability as it positions the weight near the rear. Additionally, engineers have added suspension to the front wheel to give it a smoother ride, even on rough surfaces.


The latest e-scooter features a 10.5 Ah lithium battery giving it a top speed of 20 km/h, and a range of 20 kilometers on a single charge. At 7.7 kilograms, it’s also lightweight and thanks to its unique and compact tri-folding design, it’s more compact than any similar scooter. Finally, it features a digital display with a battery status monitor and speed; while for nighttime riding, it has two LED headlights and two taillights.

Impressive as the Hyundai’s e-scooter is, they’re not done yet. They plan to install a regenerative braking system to increase its range by a further 7 percent.
