Unbeatable in the city. The Streetmate is a clever alternative to a car in a city, as it offers flexibility like no other vehicle when it comes to medium-range travel. The electric scooter also solves traffic problems by simply avoiding them. Parking is a breeze, as the compact and agile Streetmate can fit into even the smallest parking space. This avoids stress and saves time. The Streetmate scooter also benefits the environment with an electric drive system that boasts zero local emissions and is extremely quiet. It makes users feel good about being on the road, reduces the generation of air pollution in inner cities and transport stress for urban residents. At the same time, the Streetmate makes a visual statement with its clear, bicycle-like product design that stands out strikingly from the sluggish appearance of conventional scooters. This visual impression is reinforced by the fact that the Streetmate’s small motor (output: 2 kW) is integrated into the rear wheel hub.
Fast, light and agile. The Streetmate, which has a top speed of 45 km/h, is driven comfortably in a sitting position. Depending on vehicle registration regulations there is also a function that enables the seat to be folded away, allowing the electric scooter to instead be driven in a standing position. The concept scooter is light (65 kg) and also has a particularly low centre of gravity, as the lithium-ion battery is integrated into the floor structure. The battery has a rated capacity of 1.3 kWh. It can be fully recharged in two hours and 15 minutes at a charging station with a charging power of 500 watts. Alternatively, the battery can be removed and then recharged at home or at the office. The Streetmate can travel up to 35 km on a fully charged battery, which gives it an optimal range for urban driving, also in larger cities.
Easy to drive and operate. It’s easy to drive the Streetmate and use its features. For example, electric power is called up by pressing a switch on the handlebar with your thumb. Perforated disc brakes and an anti-lock braking system (ABS) ensure safe braking deceleration, whereby the rear wheel-hub motor recovers energy through regenerative braking. The range of the Streetmate can also be extended via an Eco mode. Users would need to have a driving licence and wear a helmet in Europe, and the scooter would also have to be registered and insured.
Extensively networked. The Streetmate stands out with its clever connectivity. A 5.3-inch display (resolution: 1,440 x 2,560 pixels) in the middle of the handlebars serves as the control centre. The display is weather and waterproof. The light-green monitor shows general operating parameters such as the battery charge state and the remaining range. The display can also be connected to a smartphone from which it can then obtain navigation data too. The linked smartphone uses an app to also show information such as the Streetmate’s current location. The app triggers an alarm if an unauthorised individual tries to start the scooter. The scooter can only be started if the app confirms that the user is an authorised driver, thereby transforming the smartphone into a digital key.
