Ujet Electric scooter

The Ujet seen here looks, unlike anything we’ve seen before. It is constructed from an asymmetric frame that is articulated in the centre, giving it the ability to fold easily in just 5 seconds. The folding nature has been developed expressly so that you can carry it anywhere along with you, in the same way, you would wheel a travel bag around. Ensuring ease of manoeuvrability, it is constructed from carbon fibre and lightweight alloy parts. Several of its components are interchangeable and can be customized to your liking as well, with two seat heights and two body designs to choose from.

The battery pack itself can be detached from the scooter and wheeled to an electric point for easy charging.
