Multimodal transport operator, Bolt has introduced its latest in-house e-scooter model: the Bolt 6.

The new scooter is equipped with a range of sensors, microprocessors, data mining capabilities and precision technologies to enhance safety, sustainability and the user experience.

It is compatible with all Bolt SafeRide System features including detection of tandem riding, skidding and abrupt braking.

Based on the accelerated lifetime and rigorous fatigue tests Bolt expects its newest model to have a lifespan of 8 years thanks to the efficient design and the high quality of materials used

The new model can also identify collisions in real-time and will automatically generate warnings and maintenance schedules to ensure the scooters remain in their best technical condition.

In addition, the Bolt 6 communicates with customers through its in-built LED display, supplying information about its speed and battery level.

Dmitri Pivovarov, VP for Rentals at Bolt said:

Our new Bolt 6 scooter was created by our team of engineers to address the needs of cities and riders. Designing a scooter in-house gives us full control of software and hardware, enabling us to continuously upgrade the safety features that we provide to riders and pedestrians.

The Bolt 6 is also equipped with Bolt’s Smart Parking 360 solutions package which includes an AI parking system that verifies photos of parked scooters at the end of a ride. In addition, the scooter’s sensors detect if the vehicle has a tilt of more than 15% upon parking and will alert riders to repark the unit to avoid it falling over.

The scooter is equipped with a 1.1kWh vandalism-resistant swappable battery, which provides a range of 90 kilometres on a single charge. This underfloor battery ensures a low centre of gravity to provide the vehicle with more stability and better weight distribution.

Meanwhile, the new model features wide floorboards and swept handlebars to help customers maintain a comfortable posture while riding.

The first 1,000 Bolt 6 units will be deployed in Lisbon, Riga and Tallinn by the end of July 2023 with plans to expand this rollout elsewhere over the next year.
