With its equity crowdfunding campaign set to close on Seedrs next week, Netherlands-based scooter company, Bolt Mobility, has raised more than €2.3 million from over 2,000 investors. The company launched the initiative earlier this summer, seeking €1.5 million for its new scooter, AppScooter.
As previously reported, the AppScooter is described as a scooter that accelerates 150% faster and goes up to 400km with our modular electric drivetrain. With a 7″ touchscreen and handlebar controls, Bolt Mobility claims that the AppScooter is the first scooter in the world to safely run Android apps in its cockpit. The company reported:
“AppScooter is the first scooter in the world with a completely modular battery pack. It has the capacity to fit up to 6 battery modules, giving you the choice of a range from 60 to 400 km on a single charge. The modules are packed with commercial automotive grade Lithium-Ion cells from Panasonic to ensure efficiency and reliability, taking you wherever you need to go quickly and safely. Not sure how many modules you need or worried that your living situation may change? No problem, up- or downgrade your range on demand whenever you want and we will come to you and install or remove the battery modules that you requested.”
Funds from the campaign will be used for the development of the AppScooter, which will be available starting at €2990. Bolt added:
“We don’t just redesign the scooter, we redesigned the entire value proposition. From the way it’s manufactured and engineered, to the way it’s sold and serviced. Everything we do has one singular purpose: make personal smart mobility as effortless, efficient and fun as huma(chi)n(e)ly possible. To deliver a high-quality product at an affordable price, we are actually building our own large-scale fully automated production line with the capacity for up to 100.000 scooters per year.”
The funding round will close on October 13th.
