The Volkswagen concern decided to join a stream of fresh trends in the field of personal mobility and presented at a motor show in Geneva not only traditional autonovelties, not only beach the electrobuggy, but also a couple of electroscooters.

the Device under the name Streetmate can transport you on averages to city measures of distance and is designed to replace the car in the city, and the device under the name Cityskater - what is called "means of the last mile" - for movement of absolutely close distances.

it is possible to go By Streetmate which is similar to the increased scooter with very big front wheel that is characteristic, both standing, and sitting. And to park - everywhere where the small motorcycle will be located. It weighs only 65 kilograms, it it seems is a little, but anyway not so it is not enough then to take it in hand and to carry away with themselves. The second novelty from VW - Cityskater is for this purpose intended.

the Electric motor of Streetmate is built in a back wheel and gives 2.7 hp. Energy goes from 1.3-kW-ache the Li-ion battery which was placed under a scooter floor. The maximum speed - 45 kilometers per hour. The maximum distance of driving without recharge - 34 kilometers.

the Battery can be loaded as on the scooter, and having removed it and, for example, having carried away to the room. In either case time of a full charge from the ordinary socket is about 2 hours, and from the 500 Watts express charging - 15 minutes. The scooter also easily connects to the smartphone and can show the remained charge, the card and to serve as an electronic key. The charge and other data can also be looked on the waterproof display 5.3 inches, located between handles.

the Cityskater model has no opportunities of connection with the smartphone and the screen, its haytekovost is shown only in design. It has two supports for legs, but not one, it three-wheeled, and it is possible to turn on it, just moving body weight to the left or to the right. Cityskater weighs only 15 kg and it can be carried easily with itself. Motor power - only 0.5 hp, too in a back wheel. The maximum speed - 20 km/h. Without recharge can pass up to 15 kilometers. The Li-ion battery of 200 kW, is recharged from the ordinary socket - up to a half of a charge less than for an hour. At first sight, not really impressive figures.

Now both scooters dorazrabatyvatsya. When they begin to be issued and will go on sale, is not specified. Anyway, when and if sale begins, the market of distribution will be limited to the countries of Europe.
