Bird One: an electric scooter class, but expensive


The manufacturer Bird has lifted the veil on Bird One, a high-end electric scooter that individuals can buy. This is a change of strategy for the company, whose main activity is to provide self-service scooter networks.

Resistance in the city

The Bird One has it all. The aluminum frame is reinforced to withstand shocks in the most demanding urban environments. 9-inch tires are also very durable. In the front and back there are two lights with a brightness of 40 lumens. The device is IP67 certified for resistance to debris and water.

The engine provides a maximum speed of 30 km / h; the battery, with a capacity of 12,800 mAh (473.6 Wh) will provide a range of approximately 48 km. It will take 4 to 6 hours to fill the battery, compatible fast charge. The scooter is also equipped with a GPS, which will be very useful to follow in case of theft.

Obviously Bird One connects to the smartphone via an application with all kinds of information: battery remaining, battery life, unlocking. The scooter is available in three colors (white, black, pink), at a rather salty price of $ 1,299. Pre-orders have started, shipments will begin in the United States and Europe this summer.
