The Japanese company Honda announced their new foldable mini electric scooter titled Motocompacto, a modern version of their 80s vehicle, which will go on sale in November for ¥147,065.
The mini scooter folds into a rectangle of 3.7 inches wide, 21.1 inches tall, and 29.2 inches long, taking the shape of a small briefcase. The vehicle is an environmentally friendly way of reaching the desired destination as it produces zero carbon emissions.
The lightweight scooter weighs 19 kilograms and can charge fully in three and a half hours. The maximum speed of the electrical vehicle is 15 miles per hour.
The sleek, minimalistic design can be customized with stickers, skins, or decals to reflect every individual’s personality.
A Motocompacto mobile application will be available in the future, allowing owners to adjust their personal settings or change ride modes via Bluetooth.
In 1981, Honda launched a folding scooter titled Motocompo in Japan; however, it was disconnected after two years. The scooter became incredibly popular during that time, resulting in a television advertisement with Madness, one of the most popular British bands in the late 1970s.
