Electric scooters are an everyday sight on our urban roads. There is no doubt about their popularity or easy convenience, whilst users here need to make sure they are compliant with Road Traffic regulations, which are undergoing some amendments to include this new mobile phenomenon.
Ever the innovators, Audi Ireland has introduced their Audi Electric Kick Scooter, which is powered by Segway. Boasting a 65km range on a single charge, the Audi eScooter has a full recharge time of 6 hours. With a 350W motor, the 19.1kg scooter delivers a top speed of 20kph and comprises a convenient folding design.
The Audi eScooter comes with a recommended retail price of €999.00 and is the latest product to be added to the Audi Genuine Accessories family, which is available in Ireland online at AudiShop.ie from Friday November 27th.
Coinciding with Black Friday offers, the launch of the Audi eScooter means it is included as part of a site-wide discount of 15% with online purchases over Black Friday weekend, valid until November 30th.
The Electric Scooter has an eco-friendly system in place offering more safety and stability and includes both front and rear LED lights. It contains two independent and regenerative brakes – a drum brake on the front wheel and an electrical brake on the rear wheel.
A further highlight is two 10-inch tubeless tyres which means less maintenance while also offering more comfort and durability. The tyres also contain an additional jelly layer to provide a lower puncture risk.
Three driving modes
Three driving modes are available including Eco for energy saving mode which includes a smooth acceleration and is suitable for beginners. D is the standard drive mode while S offers sport mode which is more powerful and only recommended for skilled riders. A pedestrian mode is also included which makes it more convenient to push.
Jason Mallon, Head of Aftersales, Audi Ireland commented at the launch of the eScooter, “We are very excited to be launching the Audi eScooter, something that we believe will be much sought after based on customer feedback and the trend towards multimodal mobility.
eScooters have become very popular recently and we are thrilled to offer a 65km range which we believe will be very well received. It also comes with a 2-year warranty which provides additional peace of mind. The Scooter will initially be available to purchase on AudiShop.ie, our Audi Genuine Accessories, parts and merchandise online shop and we aim to get these into dealerships before Christmas.”
