Ujet introduces its first product, the Ujet electric scooter. Designed from the ground up, the first-of-its-kind scooter combines refined design, exceptional practicality, smart connectivity and high performance materials.
“Urban mobility shouldn’t come at the cost of individuality and independence,”
said Hugues Despres, CEO of Ujet International. “The Ujet scooter is a bold, design-led alternative. It is customizable to fit perfectly into your life and to suit your individual style. It looks and feels like nothing else on the road today.”
Moving around your favorite city shouldn’t feel like a chore. With this mantra, Ujet aims to bring style, practicality, and enjoyment to city lovers. Its 100% electric scooter has been designed with some of the world’s most advanced materials, many of them typically found in the aerospace industry. It is lightweight and can be quickly folded, so it occupies half of the space of a traditional scooter. It allows city lovers to go anywhere, anytime, in style – reducing city travel times and problems with parking. Its smart battery is safe, removeable and rollable. It can be charged from any socket, and is available in two sizes with estimated ranges up to 75 km or 150 km.
The Ujet electric scooter is equipped with the lightest tire in its class – the world’s first nano-augmented tire. Made with applied TUBALL™, containing single-wall carbon nanotubes, the tire provides unprecedented performance and safety.
The advanced materials within the tire increase the grip in wet or dry conditions. Additionally, the high-performance materials in the frame, which include magnesium alloy and carbon fiber (up to 40% lighter than aluminum), allow the Ujet electric scooter to be robust, durable and secure whilst weighing just 49kg.
Ujet’s high performance and clean technologies are combined with disruptive design. It was inspired by the organic shapes in nature, paired with contemporary architecture. The asymmetrical and sculptural frame are designed to be bold, while the orbital wheel, used for the first time in mass production, gives it unique style.
The Ujet electric scooter is available in a Diamond or Curved shape, with a low or high seat and small or large battery, in six colors, including Concorde White, SoHo Grey, Piccadilly Blue, Uptown Black, Bel Air Blue, and Shibuya Gold – giving every city dweller the ability to enjoy the urban mobility experience, the freedom to travel with distinctiveness, and to express themselves individually in a crowded area.
The Ujet scooter is also a smart connected device.
The Ujet app allows the rider to fully control and monitor the scooter with their smartphone, which includes the ability to receive directions to where it is parked or to share its location with friends and family.
A 7” touch screen interface also provides easy access to navigation, music playback, telephony functions, and the front-facing camera which can take videos to be downloaded later.
Ujet plans to launch in five cities in Spring 2019. However, to offer Parisians a unique way to celebrate this Christmas season, a limited number of the scooters will be available for sale exclusively at Paris’ Le Bon Marché (October 26 – December 31).
