‘this is the vehicle-mounted personal scooter which could be featured in future hyundai motor group vehicles,’ says dongjin hyun, head of hyundai motor group robotics team. ‘we want to make our customers’ lives as easy and enjoyable as possible. our personal electric scooter makes first- and last-mile commuting a joy, while helping to reduce congestion and emissions in city centers.’
