Hyundai bets on a scooter you can mount to your car
Nowadays, every car brand seems to have a “last mile” commute solution. Hyundai came up with a concept isn’t like any others.
While some brands are betting on micro-cars and shared buses. Hyundai and Kia are working to integrate a foldable scooter into their cars.
Hyundai said the scooter would have a 10.5 Ah lithium battery. It would power the scooter for 12.4 miles on a single charge. The scooter has a top speed of 12.4 mph.
Hyundai showed the company plans to mount the scooter in car doors, and under the hood. The car would charge the scooter using the electricity produced while driving.
Hyundai updated the front-wheel-drive design to rear-wheel drive for better safety. The company said it added suspension to the front wheel to let the scooter handle rough surface.
Weighing in at 17 pounds, Hyundai definitely makes the scooter seem lighter than it really is. The folding design does enable users to store it in tighter space
Hyundai didn’t announce a timeline for the scooter. It would take a while to update the car design and get it approved from regulating bodies.
