Audi has unveiled the e-tron scooter, its answer to Peugeot’s electric bike and BMW’s E-Scooter.
Combining an electric skateboard and scooter, the four-wheeled concept is Audi’s response to the growing trend towards multi-modal mobility.
Fitted with LED head-, tail-, brake- and daytime running lights, the user can adjust the ride characteristics through a a Bluetooth system, which also acts as an anti-theft device.
Acceleration and braking are taken care of a twist grip on top of the handlebar, while changing direction is done by the rider shifting their weight, much like a skateboard.
The battery is stored in the steering handle with a display showing the battery status.
On a full charge, the e-tron scooter has a range of 20km, which is helped by a regenerative braking system, and can reach a top speed of 20km/h.
Slated to go on sale in late 2020, European pricing will be around €2000 (AUD$3323) and it may also be offered as an optional extra to customers who purchase any Audi e-tron model.
There’s no word yet if the scooter will be coming Down Under.
