If you wanted an automobile to drive over sand, dirt and rock, as well as pavement, you’d probably start and end your search at models with 4WD. So why shouldn’t the same apply to your scooter selection? The eGroov scooter uses an all-wheel electric drive to keep you rolling forward and a modular hardware set to keep you comfortable.
- If we were writing a list of “top vehicles we’d like to take off road,” we think we’d run out of ink long before ever making it to “modestly powered electric scooter.” But the minds behind Paris-based startup eGroov Mobility Systems think there’s a place for a scooter that can go anywhere, over any type of terrain, with the quiet, peaceful operation that only an electric drive brings.
The eGroov reminds us a bit of the Daymak Beast without the suspension and solar power and with an extra electric motor over the standard model (Daymak does have a dual-motor model in the “Beast D”). The eGroov has a 250-watt motor in each wheel, providing all-wheel drive that helps it tackle pavement, dirt, and even sand and mud. Those massive tires are sure to help in those mixed environments.
