After spending five years in development, a new Estonian-designed electric scooter was launched on September 20 at the 1,000 Pionniers event in Paris. The Stigo has a top speed of 25 km/h (15 mph) and a range of up to 40 km (25 miles) per charge, and is folded up and ready to roll in just two seconds.
The Stigo features twist-grip acceleration control, a 250 W hub motor, and a 36 V liFePO4 battery (which can be charged from a regular all outlet). There’s LED lighting front and back, side-mounted reflectors, caliper brakes on each wheel and a center-mounted display on the handlebars that shows remaining charge and speed.
At the end of a ride, locking mechanisms in the seat and frame are released to collapse the seat support down towards the back wheel (while raising the footrests at the same time), and allow the front wheel and handlebars to fold into the body of the scooter. When folded, it’s reported to be about the size of a golf bag and tips the scales at 17 kg (37.5 lb). Small stabilizing wheels at the rear come into play when the Stigo is being dragged behind, and also act as support when the scooter stands upright.
