Today, San Franciscans have a new way to ride around the city with the addition of 10 all-electric Nissan New Mobility Concept vehicles to the Scoot Networks mobility service.
The Nissan New Mobility Concept, also known as a Scoot Quad, is a 100-percent electric, two-seater compact vehicle with a range of 40 miles and top speed of 25 mph — perfect for driving in urban areas.
“As large cities continue to grow into megacities globally, we need to understand how transportation is changing and look ahead to anticipate what transportation needs will look like in the future,” said Rachel Nguyen, executive director, Nissan Future Lab. “Scoot Networks is an ideal partner in this research project because they are fulfilling a need that has emerged in the San Francisco market, and they share a similar commitment to zero-emissions mobility.”
The Scoot Quad joins the Scoot family of light electric vehicles — including a classic electric moped and a larger cargo outfit — and it is Scoot’s first foray on four wheels. The Scoot fleet is currently comprised of 400 customized electric scooters that go up to 30 mph and have a range of 20 to 25 miles. San Francisco residents use Scoots for a variety of activities such as quick commutes across town, running errands or as a fun way to explore the city.
“Scoot isn’t just for scooters,” said Michael Keating, founder and CEO, Scoot Networks. “If it’s small, electric and fun, you will be able to find it in the Scoot app and ride it all over the city. We are proud to partner with Nissan to make a new form of urban electric mobility available to our riders.”
