This utilitarian electric scooter is economical and faster way to move cargo in urban locales

As businesses are shifting focus from more polluting and space-consuming cargo vans and cars to cargo-hauling bikes for the last-mile approach, there is a huge demand for better options. Tapping on the opportunity, a Vancouver-based startup is designing what it calls the Scootility – precisely a portmanteau of scooter and utility. A reasonable and compact alternative for last-mile delivery; the cargo-hauling Scootility is for now in the prototype stage with production to begin in the next 12 months.

Given its unique design, the Scootility is not another electric bike. In fact, it draws design inspiration from a segway with a column handle for maneuvering it. By virtue, however, it is an electric scooter that allows the rider to stand up and ride while the cargo remains intact in the covered box right in front of the eyes.

Designer: Scootility

In the design then, a lockable cargo box with a standard load-bearing capacity of 140 liters is the biggest takeaway. This weatherproof box becomes even more beneficial for the delivery guy with the swappable feature. The cargo box can be taken off and replaced with a swappable option on the fly minimizing time between pickup and delivery.

The e-scooter with its compact size and narrow footprint in the traffic, can also be used for delivering medication or supplies in affected areas where access to other forms of transport may be hindered. Interestingly, Scootility has full suspension and wheels measuring 16-inches on the front and 13-inches on the back. The smaller wheel size allows more space for a cargo box on this scooter with utility as its basis over a simple mode of commutation.

For the safety of the rider, it’s installed with LED lighting and has a small turning radius, the manufacturer claims. A foldable leg rest of the Scootility can double as a glove compartment, and the long steering column and handle can fold down for easy storage. Powered by a swappable lithium battery offering a 100 km range in the standard variant, the Scootility is easier to ride (no license needed) and more economical (as opposed to cargo e-bikes on the market).

Since Scootility is only raising funding for its utility scooter at the moment, there is no definite word on the retail price. Given its benefits of minimum parking space requirement, swappable cargo box and battery, and substantial drive range, we are sure many businesses already have their eyes out for the Scootility.

This electric bicycle turns into a kick scooter but lacks the comfort one would desire

\Personal mobility vehicles come in various genres and form factors depending on the specific needs of the user. There is a wide array of options from the upbeat Segway and kick scooters to the more conventional bicycles and unicycles. The creative Asian market in Japan and China is also witness to the more futuristic personal pods that are a cross between a Segway and a scooter.

This electric bicycle further takes the hybrid nature of personal commuters to the next level with Cake bike-inspired aesthetics. The modular nature of this commuter makes it a good option for every kind of user. It can be your scooter, a Cake bike, or an electric ride.

The ride also draws inspiration from everyday gadgets, adapting their sleek form without compromising on the robust aesthetic that’s vital to support the body weight. Talking of supporting the rider’s weight, the saddle takes an awkward-looking shape that’ll not keep the rider comfortable for long. This form factor flows with the slim character of the bicycle but is somewhat of a comfort killer I have to say.

The rear middle section of the Electric Mobility bicycle can be detached for the kick-scooter functionality. A pretty big kick scooter it has to be said, perfect for above-than-average people. Would anyone fancy riding this? Well, this commuter has many bases untouched that should have been taken into consideration while designing the blueprint.


This Gen-Z electric scooter has ultra-customizable skin and community driven NFT art

Designed in close association with BMW Designworks Munich, Germany, the electric scooter is heavily centred around the likes and aspirations of Generation Z. The commuter is crafted with the bottom-up approach, addressing the communication element with the ride, and providing the tools to shape up their own culture.

The designers of this thorough concept decided to go with RTFKT as the co-brand since they are known for unique experiences when it comes to phygital fashion, sneakers and digital artifacts in the metaverse and NFT realm. What RTFKT wanted them to pursue is the idea that “the most personalized is the most unique.” This coincides with the desire of Gen-Z to be themselves.

The starting point was the creation of NFTs and the collection of personalized digital identities, with the best representation of the two-wheeled mobility in their subconscious. One highlight of this is the ability of Omini electric scooter to change the colors and graphics in real time. This is done from the dashboard of the vehicle itself, and the users can toggle it to any pallet they desire depending on the mood, likes and place. Everything right from the body frame to the wheels of the electric scooter has a color-changing surface for extreme customization.

The next trending look popular with users can also be imported and applied in an instant on the smartphone. Thus, giving the Gen-Z another way to showcase their lives and express themselves. The owners can share their designs with the community or pin them to their mood boards to create a personal collection. With this process, the next generation gets the opportunity to interact with others in the online world. Eventually, the active community begins to value the NFT art and rankings start to increase, making it monetarily desirable for those who want to apply it on their own Omni.
