Scooters used to be a toy for children. But some of those children grew up to pioneer technology that is revolutionizing last-mile transportation. Electric scooters sit at the forefront of this evolution of urban transportation. One company pushing the movement forward is Unagi, and they’ve created the ‘Tesla’ of electric scooters. The Unagi Model One E500 Electric Scooter has a value of $1399 CAD. One very lucky GetConnected fan will be winning it in our newest giveaway!
Sleek and elegant are just some ways to describe the Unagi Model One E500, a unique dual-motor electric scooter. You’ll notice the sculpting on the stem, which is manufactured from TORAY carbon fibre from Japan. It’s strong, lightweight and dampens vibration from the road. A single button mechanism allows the Model One to go from folded to flight-ready in seconds.
The controls integrate into a one-piece machined aluminum handlebar. An intuitive display is daylight viewable and offers critical data like battery life and cruising speed. An integrated 47 lumen LED light provides safety after dusk. The rear fender doubles as a braking system and a tail light.
Like Tesla, the Unagi Model One houses an advanced battery pack with its own management system. Using cells manufactured by SONY, each charge and discharge is carefully monitored, allowing the Model One to give a lifetime of range, performance and enjoyment. This battery system is housed in the chassis deck that is machined from a single piece of aluminum making it rigid, strong, and lightweight. The kickstand smartly retracts into the chassis and disappears when not needed.
The Unagi Model One has a maximum cruising speed of 32 km/h and a range of up to 25 km on a single 4 – 5 hr charge. Three settings offer performance suitable to the rider. Propulsion is handled with a set of front and rear motors dressed with a pair of innovative 19 cm tires. The design uses a spoked solid rubber design that is puncture-proof. The space between the spokes allows the tires to flex with the road’s imperfections providing a compliant yet supple ride. Smooth acceleration is accessed with a single kick-off.
