In case you're wondering what's so amazing about yet another e-scooter... well, the XO2 is something more than "yet another scooter". The first great thing is the fact that the battery is removable and can be pulled to the office or home thanks to its wheel system, just like you's carry a roller case.

A full charge takes only 1 and a half hours, while 1 minute of emergency charging provides a 1 km (0.62 miles) at a 100 km/h speed (62 mph). Now then, it really begins to sound interesting, doesn't it? The XO2 comes in 4 kWh and 8kWh versions, with a 2000 battery cycle life. The bigger version offers 75 km at 90 km/h (46.6 miles at 56 mph) or 130 km at 45 km/h (80.8 miles at 28 mph). The small battery gives you 100 km at 45 km/h (62 miles at 28 mph).

Take the battery out an the XO2 can be folded into a minimal shape, easy to store in an office corner or so. And if you worry about charging costs, you can clearly tell your employer to keep €0.4 ($0.54) from your wage for each full charge. Rumor has it that the XO2 versions will retail for €2,290 ($3,100) and €3,100 ($4,200). And you can even rent a battery for the likes of €50 a month ($68), with no distance limit.
