Volvo-owned Polestar has developed a fully-functioning prototype of its Re:Move electric cargo scooter concept revealed back in March.
Made from recyclable aluminum, the Re:Move’s chassis is fitted with an electric tilting mechanism to lean into corners and allow for a tight turning circle. A damped rear swing arm should make the ride smoother for both the riders and items onboard.
The stretched e-scooter is powered by a 2.2kWh battery pack and a compact electric motor, which offers a top speed-limited velocity of 25km/h. Disc brakes ensure adequate stopping power. With a slim profile the Re:Move is designed for use on most bike lanes
The prototype is the result of a collaboration between Polestar, e-bike-maker Cake, aluminum manufacturer Hydro, Wallpaper magazine, and industrial designer Konstantin Grcic.
“The passion and expertise our partners have brought to this project shows the power of great design,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “Electrifying vehicles is the start point, not the end game. Our engineers have proven that this kind of open collaboration will accelerate innovation and the shift to truly sustainable mobility.”
