Folding mechanism allows Skoda last-mile scooter to be stowed in car

Two Skoda models will be able to carry a folding scooter in the boot for improving the commute and avoiding car use for small trips.

Skoda is attending the Geneva Motor Show to present its portable scooter for sustainable mobility in the city. The new scooter concept comes with a patented folding mechanism that can be stowed in the spare wheel recess in the rear of the Skoda Octavia and Skoda Superb.

The new Skoda scooter concept is a practical and efficient way to address the ‘final mile’ from the parking space to the destination and the ‘first mile’ back to the vehicle. It provides environmentally friendly and uncomplicated mobility on the commute to work, on a shopping trip or on the way home.

The scooter’s patented ‘Simply Clever’ folding mechanism allows the scooter to be stowed under the luggage compartment of the Skoda Octavia and Skoda Superb without comprising the total luggage volume. Thanks to the modification of the storage, it can be placed above the spare wheel, the wheel brace, the car jack, the tool box or the spare bulb kit. When the new Skoda scooter concept is folded up, it only measures 41cm high and 48 cm long.

The scooter concept is made of aluminium alloy weighing just five kg but is capable of carrying a weight of up to 100 kg. High-quality bearings and wheels in polyurethane guarantee an equally fast and comfortable riding experience. Rubberised steering grips ensure agile and safe handling.

The new Skoda scooter is expected to be available for the Skoda Octavia and Skoda Superb in the second half of 2018.
