Volkswagen Streetmate and Cityskater at the Geneva Motor Show



Volkswagen presented two micro mobility concepts at the Geneva Motor Show: the two-wheeled Streetmate e-scooter and the three-wheeled Cityskater. While the first is up to 45 km / h fast, the latter is designed for up to 20 km / h.

The Streetmate - an e-scooter - is a clever alternative to cars, bikes and public transportation in the city. The Volkswagen Streetmate solves traffic problems. Difficult parking circumstances, for example: with its minimal traffic surface, the Streetmate fits into the smallest gap. And it relieves the strain on the ecosystem: thanks to the electric drive, the e-scooter moves emission-free and extremely quiet. At the same time, however, it is a visual statement as well: With its clear, bike-like product design, it stands out clearly from the awkward look of conventional scooters. Contributes to this with the small, integrated in the rear wheel hub motor. The Streetmate it develops 2 kW and accelerates up to 45 km / h. Range: 35 kilometers.

The Cityskater was conceived shortest distances - for example from the parking lot, the bus or the train to the destination. Unlike a skateboard or scooter, the collapsible Volkswagen  Cityskater has one footboard each with its own wheel for each leg. A control rod provides the necessary support, is steered intuitively by weight shifting. Volkswagen  Cityskater speeds of up to 20 km / h, and crosses distances that are too far for a hike. Range: around 15 kilometers.
