⚡Ujet electric scooter on hubless wheels and carbon nanotube tires CES 2018


The Ujet
electric scooter looks vaguely like your average scooter, but perhaps something else entirely. Ujet calls it a sculptural, asymmetrical design,
and it’s driven by distinctive equipment like the center-less orbital wheels, alloy-composite
construction and full connectivity. Enjoy a little extra flash and tech while
scootering your way around the city. The Ujet is just one in a long, ever-growing
line of folding scooters designed for nimble urban mobility. But it’s one that absolutely stands out from
the pack. Ujet’s description of a sculptural, asymmetrical
frame is spot on, especially up front. The single-sided fork shows a twisted form
and crisp edges that appear crafted for visual impact, more than traditional functionality. Similarly, the rear wheel is attached on just
one side. The asymmetrical construction of the mixed
magnesium and carbon fiber frame is helped along by the 14-in hubless wheels, which are
really the heart and soul of the Ujet. It’s here that you’ll find the integrated
suspension and large-diameter disc brakes. The rear wheel houses the 5.4-hp 65 lb-ft
motor that keeps the scooter rolling forward for up to 93 miles (150 km) per charge and
provides regenerative braking. The frame construction, powertrain and removable
battery are just the start of the Ujet’s impressive technology suite. Its 7-in fold-up dash computer keeps connected
via GPS, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and offers voice and touch control. A series of conveniently mounted buttons provide
easy-access hard control, when the rider is gripping the handlebars, while a smartphone
app offers remote monitoring, tracking and control. The Ujet scooter looks like a rigid frame,
but it’s actually a folder, compacting down in three simple steps. At 95 lb (43 kg) with the small battery and
108 lb (49 kg) with the large one, you probably won’t want to lug it around on your shoulder
too far, but its wheels line up side-by-side for easy rolling.

  1. Nice and fine transportation, but it cost 8000 euro and for that money you can buy a new small car. Eco transportation for the 1% in the world. This is not realistic with the perception of the world today.
