When you hear the term “folding electric scooter,” you likely think of a stand-up scooter along the lines of the Zümaround or the MyWay Compact. At best, you might picture something with a bicycle-style saddle and seatpost, such as the Voltitude. MOVEO, however, features a full traditional seat that’s mounted directly on the chassis. Although the scooter isn’t in production yet, it hopefully will be by next year.

The vehicle was created by the Antro Group, a Hungarian non-profit organization dedicated to developing environmentally-friendly forms of transportation. Antro previously brought us the eye-catching SOLO human-electric hybrid car.

Work began on the MOVEO project in 2008. Five years later, a functioning prototype is on the road, and the group is seeking business partners to help fund commercial development of the scooter.

Most mobility scooters are limited to 4-8 mph, but at least one has been tuned up to be able to do 70 mph.
