XO2 Urban Transformer – Brilliant folding electric scooter

XO2 a

The XO2 Electric Scooter does what folks have dreamed about since we first saw the Jetsons cartoons – it folds in on itself.

Called the first “Urban Transformer” scooter, the XO2 is a series of lightweight, electrically-powered scooters with a low saddle, large backrest and are easy to use. Manufactured by French company XOR Motors, it folds into a quarter cubic meter luggage cart in seconds, small enough to drag onto a train or upstairs to the office for a recharge. Speaking of recharging, it’s a snap – just plug it into any outlet and the onboard charger does the rest. Come back in 2 hours and you’ll have 80 to 100% power.

Each of the three different XO2 models can travel at 70km (45 miles) per charge while the sportiest XO2 125 Urban has a top speed of 105km/h. They can carry two people, are equipped with hydraulic brakes, halogen headlights, a removable and swappable battery and a 3 year warranty that also covers the batteries. [Via Designboom]

XO2 is the first URBAN TRANSFORMER scooter – With its clean (electric) and powerful propulsion, its light weight, its blistering accelerations, its large flat deck, its low centre of gravity, its lowered saddle, its tight turning radius, its exceptional ease of use, the XO2 scooter is ideal for city commuting.
