the ‘electricmood’ scooter by the self-named entrepreneur team, is a lightweight, fast and portable mode of urban transport that aims to bring high levels of fun to commuters’ driving experiences. weighing just 10kg, the aluminum alloy framed product has an instantaneous folding system to make it ideal for mobility when not in use. when ridden, it can reach a top speed of 15.5 mph and has a range of 12 miles, thanks to its in-house developed 500W e-motor.

‘we wanted to make a portable and universal transportation vehicle that could be used in cities globally, rechargeable anywhere and accessible to everyone. to achieve this challenge, we needed big inflatable wheels, an efficient folding system and a simple recharging system that connects directly to a wall plug. these elements are reflected in the design from eliumstudio and gave the ELECTRICMOOD its aesthetic that’s radically different from other scooters.’ said david libault, founder of electricmood.

the integrated charger which re-energizes the 33.6V lithium battery in less than an hour, connects to standard electrical wall sockets. the supplied support powers not only the scooter’s performance capabilities, but also its set of LED lights and its digital display that indicates autonomy, speed and the kilometers traveled. the ‘electricmood’s research and development has been completed, and is available for pre-orders on indiegogo, with deliveries expected to arrive in june 2015.
