Dubbed as the Volkswagen Last Mile Surfer, it is a foldable electric scooter that weighs just 11 kg. Its compact proportions and foldable feature allow for storage in a vehicle’s boot. This is a boon for car owners who work in congested cities where a parking space can be tough to find. Consider its operation similar to that of the Segway.

Running purely on electricity, torque is supplied by an unspecified electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery. VW claims that the electric drivetrain has a battery range of 19.95 km.
