Complete the last mile with a tool battery
Emission-free riding, the possibility of leaving your car at home for a while, completing the last mile: with these characteristics, e-kick scooters quickly gained popularity as a new form of e-mobility. GOVECS and Einhell unite to add another innovation to this concept within their core competencies. As part of the cooperation, an e-kickscooter has been developed, in which batteries from the Einhell Power X-Change battery platform are used. Currently, the batteries already supply energy to over 100 devices in workshop and garden tools as well as in home and leisure.
"With our expertise as the leading manufacturer of electric scooters in Europe, we offer together with Einhell the climate-neutral ELMOTO KICK, which combines remarkable riding pleasure with intelligent features," says Thomas Grübel, CEO of GOVECS AG. The Power X-Change batteries are intelligent because they sustainably reduce electrical waste. "The platform expansion in this dynamic segment brings us one step closer to our vision of using Power X-Change to transport the feeling of freedom into every household with a garden," says Andreas Kroiss, CEO of Einhell Germany AG. "We are delighted to have found such a competent partner in GOVECS".
The ELMOTO KICK: Safety Meets Performance
With a nominal output of 300 watts, the e-kickscooter is a pioneering solution for urban mobility. Einhell's high-performance rechargeable batteries enable a legally permitted top speed of 20 km/h and a maximum range of 20 kilometres without any problems. Two 10-inch pneumatic tyres (25 cm) as well as two hydraulic disc brakes and a particularly stable frame have been installed to ensure optimal ride comfort and the highest level of safety. The LCD display shows speed and battery status in real time. The ELMOTO KICK easily handles inclinations of up to 10 degrees. To make the ELMOTO KICK even more suitable for everyday use, it weighs only 15 kilograms and has a folding handlebar with snap-in and carrying function.
