Vodafone Germany announced a partnership with Egret Scooters by Walberg Urban Electrics to launch a connected scooter. The ElektroRoller2Go will target the vehicle sharing market, with the Vodafone Sim allowing users to locate a free scooter with a smartphone app. The foldable scooter is similar to an electric bike and able to travel up to 22 miles on a single charge.
"We want to introduce a completely new vehicle class," said Florian Walberg, CEO of Walberg Urban Electrics GmbH
Perfect in connection with public transport
The big advantage of the Electric Scooters compared to all other common vehicles is its portability. Without taking more space than a sports bag you can simply fold the scooter and take it with anywhere. The EGRET scooters are not only an alternative to public transport but also the perfect complement.
"We assume that scooters will be as much in traffic as the electric bike or the moped," said Walberg. Unlike big electric scooters (moped), "Egret Scooters " are ultra mobile and is perfectly suitable for short distances. " Last Mile"
Zero Emission for the environment
Another advantage of the e-scooter2Go program is to make cities become cleaner. Instead of using your own car every time for inner city short journeys and eternal traffic lights, you can simply swing to the next emission-free electric rocker. This is better for the environment and makes your trip even more fun.
How does it work?
The telecommunication partner wants to equip the scooters with Sim cards to network them. "We want to network everything that has wheels," said Vodafone boss Hannes Ametsreiter then, you start the app, look for a scooter in your area, use the app to switch on the scooter and enter your target point. The electric scooter can drive up to 21 miles before it has to be recharged and with speeds up to 20 mph gives you plenty of fun and convenient transportation A to B.
Congratulations to the team @ Egret for this extraordinary achievement.
