Electric Commercial Scooter hopes to Thrive in Fuel Crisis

An electric scooter manufacturer is hoping to cash in on the fuel price crisis by launching a model aimed at struggling businesses needing last mile urban delivery solutions.

Sunra UK has created an Utility model based on its Robo-S leisure scooter claiming it can offer the same ease of use and budget saving efficiencies plus with additional functionality and carrying capacity. The vehicle claims a range of more than 60 miles and a maximum speed of 50mph and boasts fast charging batteries that can be swapped out for fresh ones in less than 60 seconds.

The Robo-S Utility also claims considerably reduced service requirements and costs, along with an additional 24-liters of under-seat storage, finger-print recognition and its own alarm and immobilizer system. Logan Black of Sunra UK said: “We wanted to bring a cost effective EV solution to small business and fleet operators alike. While the Robo-S is already being used for this application in standard form, our goal was to offer a machine off-the-shelf that fits the needs of this ever increasing segment of users.

“With the Utility model, we’ve developed and tested key accessories that can allow business users to deploy the Robo-S for a variety of uses and jobs. The large rear rack can be used in isolation or with an array of different sized top-box options, while the addition of a large, full-size windshield and phone holder keep staff much better protected and connected too. We also plan to offer communication solutions, location trackers and extra weather protection from tried and tested partners.”
