Folding electric scooter goes anywhere

This compact, sleek-looking Moveo electric scooter has a surprise: when you hop off, you can fold it neatly into a moveable package, somewhat akin to an oversized roller suitcase.

The Moveo is the design brainchild of Antro, a non-profit Hungarian organization that has also designed the wood-framed hybrid Solo car.

Moveo goes up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) on a charge, and can re-charge in just an hour. It has a maximum speed of 45 kilometers (28 miles) per hour. An integrated handle and hinged parts allow the scooter to be nearly folded and rolled (or perhaps more accurately, pulled) to a secure parking area.

At a weight of 25 kilos (63.75) pounds, it isn’t likely that Moveo owners would want to lift the scooter up a long flight of stairs, or roll it much further than anyone would want roll an equally heavy roller suitcase (let’s say at most two city blocks).

It’s nice to know that if you really want to, however, you can take the Moveo with you. That versatility would make it a great plus on ferry rides, for example, up short staircases, or around unwieldy corners.
