The e-scooter sharing provider Bird announces a tenfold increase in its e-scooter fleets in Europe and the Middle East. From this spring, expansion in more than 50 new cities is planned. In its European development, Bird will be supporting on a new model called Bird Zero.

Bird Zero is said to offer a 60 percent longer battery life than its predecessors. It was designed specifically to meet the requirements of the e-scooter sharing service. In addition to the more extensive battery life, he is expected with better lighting and prolonged life.

“World class brands and companies have the perfect formula of economics and the ability to grow and scale. As we expand Bird’s global footprint, we will demonstrate unmatched innovation, commitment to riders, neighborhoods and cities and operational excellence while generating an explosive run rate. This formula will drive great impact and progress on our mission to make our cities and communities more livable,” said Travis VanderZanden, founder and CEO of Bird. 

Less than a year ago, Bird launched in Europe and the Middle East for the first time, launching sharing places in Paris, Tel Aviv, Brussels, Antwerp, Vienna, Zurich, and London. During this year, new locations in Malaga, Lisbon, Warsaw, Lyon and Madrid were added.

Bird Zero's specifics benefits include: Extended Range: 60% more battery life for longer rides and serving more riders every day; Improved ride stability and durability; Integrated digital display plus improved GPS.
