Moveo, foldable electric scooter designed and manufactured by Hungarian Antro Group. Production start is scheduled for 2014 – pre-orders are accepted. The city scooter, Moveo weighs as much as a regular e-bike (about 25 kg), it is foldable and so it does not need any parking spot.
It can be folded in two minutes – without getting greasy fingers – and the seat can be taken off to carry it as a rucksack. The company behind Moveo foldable scooter is the Antro Group (Alternative Resources and Vehicles Development), a Hungarian company specialized in development of environment-friendly means of transportation.
Vision of the company is to develop concepts using state-of-the-art materials and technologies to substantially reduce the weight of vehicles while keeping safety and comfort level very high that we are generally accustomed to. “Antro’s mission is to create a truly human and environmentally friendly, full value alternative to current means of transport – that is developed and manufactured in Hungary.”
Production start is scheduled for 2014 in Hungary and the short-term target price of Moveo is said to be about EUR 3.200 in the first year. However, on the mid-term – given the higher number of ordered and produced units and lower average costs – price will be reduced to about EUR 2.400, which is clearly a competitive price point compared to the currently available e-bikes. Having said that, the time of trendsetters has come, if they want to stay ahead of the pack: Moveo already has an order list and takes further pre-orders for its first lot of production.
