Urb-E – Meet the World’s Most Compact E-vehicle

UrbE

Personal Mobility is finally starting to take off. Using the Lithium-ion battery, Urb-E or the world’s most compact e-scooty is focused on connecting the last mile – from a train, a bus or even after parking your car. It claims to go for 20 miles on single full charge that takes up to 3 hours. A mini-Tesla is what its founder Grant Delgatti calls it.

Urb-E can be folded up like a small suitcase and can be rolled on its wheels like a suitcase – it is small enough to fit in between your legs while sitting on a train or a bus or a car. And because of its size and its portability, it’s theft proof as it doesn’t require locking in an outside environment.

Would you get one for yourself…?

  1. It’s just great to see such brilliant innovation providing solutions to current and future mobility challenges. I’m afraid Wellington will be too windy – and hilly! – for this particular model, but it’ll be just about right in other, less demanding environments.

    1. People are not short on ideas – there are products that we wish must be a hit, but they never take-off. I think a lot depends on how such “off beat” products are marketed…I hope not like a green product but something that’s cool and looks logical for people.

      1. Thank you for the enthusiasm, Pankaj and Florian! Our team, that is developing the URB-E, are “solutionist” and also know that an emotional connection must be present for a successful product. We aim to solve the “first / last mile” for the urban commuter and the URB-E is our first step. It has to be fun and practical, and the “green” aspect is the cost of entry. It’s not an either / or anymore. BTW, the parent company behind URB-E is called Egological Mobility Solutions. Keep an eye out for our Indiegogo campaign next month.
        Cheers!

      2. Thanks to you Todd for bringing out such products and more importantly positioning it appropriately. First/last mile connectivity is a major challenge in most places and different cities do come up with city-specific solutions. But something like this seems a more universal choice.
