An Ann Arbor-based startup recently unveiled the 'GenZe 2.0' at CES 2016. The debut coincides with a growing demand for alternative forms of transportation that help consumers navigate the urban environment in a way that is efficient and eco-friendly.
The GenZe 2.0 is a lightweight scooter that is entirely electric. The frame of the scooter is made from aluminum, which gives it a lightweight yet sturdy feel. Although the top speed that the scooter can reach is only 30 mph, the vehicle is efficient and easy enough for a driver of any skill level to operate. To make it commuter-friendly, there is even a roomy trunk that can be used to accommodate groceries or other cargo.
Unlike other scooters on the market, the GenZe 2.0 also features a smart touchscreen interface and a PIN-based ignition system. These connected features are designed to meet the needs of younger consumers who may be considering alternative forms of transportation.
