It's widely accepted that electromobility will ultimately put paid to fossil fuel drives. It seems there is more to eMobility than just that, however, as the concept of using electric power to get from A to B is increasingly inspiring entirely new concepts, with successful approaches being taken all the way to series production. Elon Musk and his Teslas and Hyperloops were only the beginning, and the stylish electric scooters from Xiaomi are anything but the last word in eMobility development. Take a small startup in Cologne, for example - a company that emerged from the innovation hotbed that is Germany's higher education sector and is bringing the first ever eScooter with all-wheel steering to the world's roads. PLEV Technologies GmbH is now finally unveiling its cherished product to the public - at CEBIT 2018.
The idea for the "Steereon" eScooter was dreamt up in 2015 and has since blossomed into a concept that ticks all the boxes when it comes to short-range travel. Thanks to patented all-wheel steering, "Steereon" is incredibly agile and its light and foldable construction makes it easy to transport. The scooter's powerful motor and long-lasting battery are set to ensure a fun ride and impressive range at more than reasonable running costs. What's more, "Steereon" has something that lots of other more exotic solutions have so far lacked - the all-important approval for road use under Germany's road traffic licensing laws (StVZO). If you like the sound of all that, then you don't have too long to wait - the first "Steereons" should be coming to a road near you in 2019. But of course, you can get a good look at this impressive new eMobility solution much earlier - in June 2018 at CEBIT.
