Residents of the Netherlands has long been made for their selves the choice between public transport and bicycles in favor of the latter. And this country is a leader in the number of two-wheeled vehicles per capita. But soon the streets of Dutch cities may see another type of compact personal transport – ultramodern electric moped Qugo.
Today will tell about one more individual means of transportation, which is designed to wean us to pedal – electric moped Qugo. Created this ultramodern electric moped Dutch company Silvestris. Their goal for this was to develop a compact, economical and highly mobile vehicle through the city, which will be a great replacement not only cars and public transport, and bicycles.
Moped Qugo weights only 25 kilograms. Its length is 115 cm, width – 58, and the height can vary between 78-135 cm.
This is an individual vehicle has front-wheel drive and two small rear wheels, which play a stabilizing role. Moreover, all three wheels Qugo passively respond directly to the driver’s behavior, so that no electrical interference for balance while riding this transport is not necessary. Electric moped Qugo powered from lithium-ion batteries, which charge enough for it to travel about 25 kilometers (quite normal distance for the needs of the urban population). Their complete charging, as creators of this transport vehicle assure, lasts 3-4 hours.
