Unagi has released details for its Model Eleven e-scooter that will be available later this year. The futuristic lightweight e-scooter features an advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS), alongside an integrated audio system.
Unagi’s Model Eleven weighs just 14kg, as it is the first two-wheel device to be made from long carbon composite, making the foldable e-scooter easier to carry. In addition, the scooter’s elastomer-based suspension system combats bumpy and uncomfortable rides caused by cobblestones or broken roads.
The e-scooter’s integrated audio system provides scooter-first turn-by-turn directions thanks to Unagi’s partnership with Google. The scooter can also be connected to the user’s device with Bluetooth to play music through the audio system.
Furthermore, the integrated audio system is used to alert riders of potential hazards. The Model Eleven’s integrated ADAS sensor detects objects in the rider’s periphery and delivers audio and visual alerts. This AI technology can identify stop signs, red lights, people, cars, potholes, inanimate objects, and lane departure.
Unlike other e-scooters, Model Eleven features swappable, foam filled tyres that can seamlessly be detached and replaced, thus ensuring the scooter is not rendered useless if a puncture occurs.
The Model Eleven also has a swappable battery that is designed to eliminate range anxiety. Each battery offers a maximum range of 15 miles per charge, but additional batteries can be purchased and used as replacements for longer journeys.
For security, the Model Eleven is fitted with a motion sensor and alarm to prevent thieves. The inbuilt GPS tracker and remote kill feature also allows the scooter’s location to be determined and the engine to be shut down remotely from the Unagi app. The scooter’s location can then be shared with the police for recovery.
This upcoming model therefore highlights the growing capabilities of e-scooters as they rapidly increase in popularity as a practical and sustainable mode of transport.
