The Volkswagen Electric Scooter Hopes to Compete Against the Segway

It was only a matter of time before something like the Volkswagen Electric Scooter came about. The Segway is holding strong in the market, if for more niche needs and experiences, so a little bit of healthy competition is definitely needed. Taking on a three-wheeled design rather than the more typical two, the Volkswagen Electric Scooter is not only sleek, but foldable as well.

Supposed priced much lower than a Segway, the Volkswagen Electric Scooter takes its design cues in-house. The white and grey look is inspired by the Volkswagen XL1. The Verge reports, "There's no definitive word on a US launch just yet, and those wheels look as though they could run into some trouble on city terrain. But Segway's hold on the mall cop market may be facing some fresh competition."
