Frankfurt, Germany – 13th September, 2017 – Today at IAA 2017, the world’s leading provider of electric personal transportation, Segway shows a new concept of efficient, green and smart transportation with the announcement of the CityGo Last Mile System. A smart electric kickscooter network that could reshape the future landscape of transportation within cities.
“With the concept of CityGo Last Mile System, we will enable commuters to travel the last mile in an effortless and elegant way, not to mention environmental friendly. When not in use, CityGo scooters can be locked and charged at conveniently positioned “Charge‘n Go“ stations or in cars’ boots with the “Boot‘n Go“ car storage units,” said Tony Ho, Vice President Global Business Development at Segway. “We are currently actively working with cities, car manufacturers, car-hiring companies, and EV charge networks to roll out this new concept to the mass market. We certainly welcome more partners to join us.”
Safe and green ride for future daily commute
The elegantly designed CityGo scooter will be lightweight and easy to fold which allows users to store it in their cars or conveniently carry it on and off public transport to make it the ideal vehicle for daily commute.
Features like the unique adaptive power assist system enables users to activate and adjust speed intuitively, and to personalize riding preferences accordingly. With a maximum speed of 25 km/h and three different riding modes, Novice, Standard and Sport, the CityGo scooters will fit the needs of all kind of users.
Segway CityGo App
All CityGo scooters are mobile phone ready, and can be lock/unlock, personalized and monitored via Bluetooth communications. In addition, The CityGo apps will be powered by a cloud based management system, which allows all scooters, charge stations and car trunk storage units to work together seamlessly. When applying big data analysis, the deployment of the CityGo scooters and network build-out can be optimized. As a result, auto companies, charge networks, and cities will be able to integrate their current infrastructure readily as a turn key solution.
