Audi Ireland has today introduced the Audi Electric Kick Scooter powered by Segway, the ideal choice for a high-quality and comfortable riding experience. Boasting a 65km range on a single charge, the Audi eScooter has the longest range within its class, with a full recharge time of 6 hours. With a 350W motor, the 19.1kg scooter delivers a top speed of 20kph and comprises a convenient folding design.
With an RRP of €999.00, the Audi eScooter is the latest product to be added to the Audi Genuine Accessories family and is available in Ireland online at AudiShop.ie from today (Friday November 27th). Coinciding with Black Friday offers, the launch of the Audi eScooter means it is included as part of a site-wide discount of 15% with online purchases over Black Friday weekend, valid until November 30th.
The Electric Scooter has an eco-friendly system in place offering more safety and stability and includes both front and rear LED lights. It contains two independent and regenerative brakes – a drum brake on the front wheel and an electrical brake on the rear wheel. A further highlight is two 10-inch tubeless tyres which means less maintenance while also offering more comfort and durability. The tyres also contain an additional jelly layer to provide a lower puncture risk.
Three driving modes are available including Eco for energy saving mode which includes a smooth acceleration and is suitable for beginners. D is the standard drive mode while S offers sport mode which is more powerful and only recommended for skilled riders. A pedestrian mode is also included which makes it more convenient to push.
Announcing the launch of the Audi Electric Kick Scooter, Jason Mallon, Head of Aftersales, Audi Ireland said “We are very excited to be launching the Audi eScooter, something that we believe will be much sought after based on customer feedback and the trend towards multimodal mobility. eScooters have become very popular recently and we are thrilled to offer a 65km range which we believe will be very well received. It also comes with a 2 year warranty which provides additional peace of mind. The Scooter will initially be available to purchase on AudiShop.ie, our Audi Genuine Accessories, parts and merchandise online shop and we aim to get these into dealerships before Christmas.”

The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. Therefore, the usage of CO2 emission values measured according to WLTP for vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018 on can cause changes in this regard as well. For further information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC, please visit www.audi.de/wltp.
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such times as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle. Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the guide “Information on the fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).
