The development and improvement in alternative energy power sources is proving to be a huge boon for start-ups that want to create innovative transport tech, such as the URB-E – an electric scooter that could make urban commuting a lot more enjoyable and environmentally friendly.
Check it out in action, below:
A great benefit of the URB-E is that it’s collapsible, so you can store it in the boot of your car or carry it onto a bus or train. It’s mostly ideal for people who work in or commute to city centres frequently, or people who use public transport and need something to make the distance to the office a little more manageable.
There are four different models, although they’re just slight variations on the same core fold-up scooter platform. The URB-E Pro is $1,699 (around R19,800) , the Pro GT is $1,999 (around R23,280), while the Sport and Sport GT are $899 (around R10,500) and $1,099 (around R12,800) respectively.
Large cities all over the world are doing whatever they can to decrease their volume of fossil fuel emissions, so the adoption of vehicles like the URB-E will likely go a long way over time.
