Electric Scooter Folds Into Rolling Suitcase

Electric Scooter Folds Into Rolling Suitcase

Moveo scooters remove the hassle of parking with a design that is fully foldable and portable.

Driving in the city can be a tricky business and finding a parking space can be even trickier. Although scooters may be convenient for weaving in between traffic, like cars, finding a place to store them in an urban environment can be a problem. Moveo, a scooter created by non-profit group Antro, is lightweight, electric and solves your parking problem: it can be folded up into itself and dragged on its wheels, like a piece of luggage. You can drive to work, then park your scooter by your desk.


The scooter weighs 55lbs so it is not the lightest of loads, but it is certainly portable. It can go up to 28 mph and has a battery range of 21.75 miles. This is not a vehicle to be taken on a road trip, but is certainly convenient for city-dwellers who zip from place to place and don’t want to waste time parking. The design is fully enclosed, so there is no chance of getting oil stains on your khakis, and unlike other folding scooters, it has a traditional full-back seat that is mounted on the chassis.


As a non-profit organization, Antro focuses on developing eco-friendly transportation. The scooter pictured is a fully functioning prototype, but the company needs to raise the funds to bring it to the masses. There are hopes to begin with a medium production line of 4000 scooters per year, with potential growth to 15,000 scooters a year. They will cost between $3600-$4600 and the company plans on beginning production next year.
