Hyundai To Introduce Foldable E-Scooter With 'Last Mile' Rides

This Hyundai's e-scooter will directly compete with Audi's E-Tron.

In 2017, the world's leading automaker Hyundai merely talked up about its own production of electric scooters at CES 2017. But after two years, this now seems like a serious and long-term ambition. However, the largest automotive manufacturer in South Korea has recently introduced a prototype electric scooter that can be equally compared to a car.

You can even attach an electric scooter to the EV and charge it

The scooter has taken the preeminent features of Hyundai and Kia cars and is capable of running as similarly as Audi's E-Tron, with a range of 12.4 miles and a maximum speed of 12.4MPH. You can even attach an electric scooter to the EV and charge it, in which the electricity is generated while driving. 

The new version of the scooter possesses some functional adjustments. First, it can switch from front to rear wheels for stability enhancement. Second, the front suspension will result in less clashing drives on rough surfaces. Also, the scooter has an additional regenerative braking system that can add 7 percent (about 0.9 miles) of range.

This e-scooter is foldable.

So far, Hyundai has yet made an official announcement on when the foldable e-scooter will be available. This depends on how fast the product can charge with electricity with its lineup. And like Audi, Hyundai will have a challenge finding an answer on how to attract potential customers as there are now many ways to move around in the changing transportation context. If Hyundai does not produce its own e-scooter, it can use outsourcing services from Lime, Bird and other companies. At the same time, Hyundai will also face the increasing issue of users neglecting car ownership.
