CityGo Urban is a stylish electric scooter with a sleek design that’s activated with a single kick. It uses an onboard battery that powers a 300-watt motor at a speed of 24 km/h. There’s no throttle, key or switches involved.
Using an accompanying smartphone app, the scooter can be set in three modes:
- Novice – 10 km/h.
- Normal – 19 km/h.
- Sport – 24 km/h.
The app can also track routes, battery life and tell you how much carbon dioxide you’ve saved. E-scooter will come in two versions:
- A standard battery that is supposed to provide two hours of runtime and cover a distance of 20 km,
- and a beefed-up battery that ups the runtime to three hours and the distance to 26 km.
Those metrics apply to riding the scooter at about 10 km/h. Braking is accomplished by pressing a lever above the back wheel which, provides a power boost to the battery. It weighs in at 9.8 kg and the front of the scooter has a built-in LED lights.
The Indiegogo campaign has already exceeded its goal of raising $50,000 and still has about three weeks left. The scooters are expected to ship in January 2017.
