Electric vehicles are really hitting their stride this year – and we’re not just talking about cars. The world’s first road-charged bus and an electric tricycle also made their debut, and now an all-electric scooter seems like the most logical next step. Enter the Stigo, a new foldable, ultra-lightweight electric scooter that collapses down to a mere 18 by 16 inches – just about the size of a golf bag but taller – and weighs only 37 pounds.

The Stigo more closely resembles an electric Vespa than that razor scooter kids often put around on. While it’s not a speed demon that you’ll need motorcycle license to legally ride around, the Stigo isn’t a push over either. The 250W hub motor equipped electric scooter can still top out at a speed of 15 miles per hour. With a 36V LiFePO4 battery on board, it’s possible to cruise up to 24 miles on a single charge.

Stigo electric scooters are rolling out in Europe with just 200 models that you can pre-order for a price of 2,370 euros ($3,205) directly from its website. Stigo plans to introduce the scooter in San Francisco and Boston by Autumn 2014. Also if you happen to be in Paris, you can check out the scooter in person when it is presented to the public for the very first time today at the “1000 Pionniers” event.

    Interesting concept, indeed, bravo for demonstration! – in production or prototype only? Somehow, I would need a “tricycle” model of it to better control when stationary – as I have rather stiff legs… also to keep it standing when leaving or mouting the beast.. ;)
    Cool design!
