After winning the Gadget Show Live British Invention of the year 2016 the eFOLDi personal electric vehicle has now taken to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website to raise the £90,000 it requires to make the jump into production.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about this award winning multi-functional electric scooter that folds up into a suitcase size package providing a compact and lightweight solution that is easy to assemble and ultraportable.
The eFOLDi personal electric vehicle has a top speed of roughly 12.5 mph and a range of 14 miles as well as being able to transport a load of up to 100 kg or 220lb. Its designers explain more about the inspiration and construction of the eFOLDi.
The eFOLDi was designed for multiple applications but mostly for one simple purpose: To help get people around easily! eFOLDi is perfect for commuters, whose work places take them beyond public transport links, along with the elderly and those with limited mobility who are unable to walk for long distances… eFOLDi is for everyone!
eFOLDi is a durable, lightweight, safe and folding personal transporter, allowing you experience a variety of different options: from a battery powered electric scooter, a portable chair to a traveller’s suitcase. Made up of a father and daughter team with a combined 66 years of engineering experience and after 4 years of prototype development, we’ve finally been able to have the opportunity to work together and launch eFOLDi!
We are the winner of the prestigious “British Invention Of The Year 2016” at The Gadget Show Live on 31st March 2016.
