One can never have enough folding electric scooters, and here’s one more neat concept from Chinese manufacturers XOR Motors. The first thing we loved about their ET Scooter is the ultra-clean design, one of the habitual troublemakers when it comes to drawing a folding scooter.
Because of their very nature, creating and building a folding scooter is not an easy task, at least not if the manufacturer wants to deliver a clean, neat, good-looking bike in the showroom. We can’t even start to count how many fugly folding scooters we saw these years… but we’re ever so happy to see the utterly stylish ET Scooter.

More options are better

Another cool feature is the fact that XOR Motors is offering multiple power options for the ET Scooter. The base version comes with a 250W motor, but things can gradually grow to 1000W. Accordingly, the top speed of these nifty two-wheelers will increase from 25 to 70 km/h (15 to 43 mph), while the range could reach 40 km (25 miles).

Currently, the XOR Motors can only do 20 km (12 miles) but for close-range urban commuting, this is more than enough. The battery needs 3 to 4 hours for a full recharge and this makes it convenient. Imagine riding some 15 km (9 mi) to work, plugging the ET Scooter in and having it ready to roll when you leave.

Made from aluminium tubes joined together by a patented locking system, the XOR Motors ET Scooter rolls on tiny wheels with nice, sticky tires, whose entire diameter reaches 12 inches and has dual disc brakes. The vehicle tips the scales at 30 kg (66 lb) and can carry up to five times its own weight, rider and luggage together.

The ET Scooter should make appearance in early Q2 2015, for a price of $2,990. Not exactly the cheapest alternative, but one of the sleekest, by far.
