UJET debuts new folding electric smart scooter with innovative design features
UJET has introduced a smart connected electric vehicle (EV) --- a futuristic-looking foldable electric scooter. The cost of the scooter will range between $8,900 and $9,900, depending on the size of the battery.
Introducing its folding electric scooter, UJET said that it plans to commence the initial deliveries of the scooter in Europe in the coming months, and will likely make it available in the US later in 2018.
Boasting several innovative design features, the UJET’s electric folding scooter will be barely 95 lbs (43 kg) in weight, which means that it will not be difficult to walk around with the scooter, even when it is folded. The electronically-limited top speed of the scooter will be 28 miles per hour.
The new UJET scooter will be controllable by the users through their smartphones, thanks to its smart connectivity resulting from an onboard GPS, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth equipped computer. With the help of their smartphones, the users will be able to lock/unlock the scooter, as well as access location features and receive tamper notifications.
The app for the UJET scooter will facilitate the users in real-time monitoring of the scooter’s systems by using an array of 20 sensors positioned at different parts of the scooter, and will also be able to guide the users to service locations. The scooter also has an onboard camera for recording all rides, and a sleek integrated flip-up display which shows the speed, battery life, efficiency, and other driving parameters.
