Mercedes launches 500W full suspension electric scooter for greener last-mile trips

  • Date: 10/02/2020

Mercedes-Benz announced today the unveiling of their latest vehicle, which just happens to be a folding electric scooter creatively named the eScooter. The scooter was produced via a partnership with the Swiss company Micro Mobility Systems AG.

Micro has been active in the micromobility space for years, and this isn’t even their first partnership with a German automotive company. Last year they worked with BMW to help that company create their own last-mile electric scooter.

But the model they’ve developed with Mercedes seems to be a bit stronger. It features a 500W peak rated hub motor in the front wheel, suspension in both wheels, and even packs in a 280Wh battery pack. While that’s not necessarily a chart-topping battery capacity in the e-bike world, it’s par for the course when it comes to last-mile electric scooters, and the company says it should be enough for a range of 25 km (15.5 miles).
