Daimler’s Smart division, best known for small cars, has announced that it will bring an electric scooter to the market in 2014. Smart first unveiled the escooter along side its electric-powered bike at the Paris Motor Show in September 2010 and said the scooter would have a single-charge range of 62 miles with a top speed of 28 mph.

The two-wheeled Smart eScooter packs a 4kW punch through its rear-wheel-mounted direct hub drive motor and 48-volt lithium-ion battery. The eScooter also feature a smartphone interface that acts as an instrument ‘dashboard’ and doubles as an anti-theft device as the vehicle will not switch on until the phone is connected. The smart escooter is especially designed for European markets where low power scooters can be ridden without motorcycle licenses.
