Audi Develops an Electric Scooter to Store in Bumper

April 26, 2016

In this active world that we live in, bicycles, scooters and other forms of transportation have become a popular alternative for those that don’t have a car. However – for those that do want to continue to stay on top of the newest trends, the new Audi Q3 is perfect.

Audi debuted their new connected mobility concept, which combines smartphone integration along with an electronically-driven longboard/scooter to help with the commute. The connected concept connects to a smartphone calendar, and can pinpoint exactly where the driver is headed. Once synced, it calculates the fastest route to the destination.


When the fastest route doesn’t include the Audi anymore, it recommends a parking spot for the driver to pull into. Once parked, the driver can open up the rear bumper to retrieve the scooter and scoot the rest of the way. The scooter can travel up to 7.4 miles and goes up to 18mph.


With a simple clip of a smartphone to the handlebars, the Audi MMI connect app can help you get to your final destination quickly and efficiently.


Although this is just a concept that was featured, the idea behind it is one that will depict the mobility of the future. It’s fascinating to see these ideas come to life – and that can be a successful integration into how we travel.
