COMODULE is launching the most durable and eco-friendly e-scooter in micromobility

Europe, Estonia based telematics provider is applying their market expertise of connecting more than 200 000 e-scooters worldwide by launching and testing their own e-scooter in their backyard in Tallinn, under a local brand. The launch took place 19.05.2020. The e-scooter is developed and produced in Europe, Estonia and specially tailored for the shared mobility use-case.

We are so excited to share the epic milestone of COMODULE. We are launching the most durable and eco-friendly e-scooter on the shared mobility market!  It is 90% recyclable, developed and produced in Estonia with clean energy, and with a lifetime expectancy of 60 months or 5 years. This is currently 2-20 times longer than other e-scooters on the market.

 

COMODULE has been connecting light electric vehicles to the internet since 2014, with a mission of empowering emissionless transport. “During the boom of shared e-scooters in 2019, we saw very closely how poorly the scooters were made, and this resulted in very bad unit economics for our customers. Although the scooters ran on clean energy, there was nothing clean about the way they were being built and recycled. Since our team are mostly engineers, with a background in building electric racing cars, we decided to design, build and develop the most durable scooter with all the IoT capabilities already built in. Now that we have an e-bike and an e-scooter for the sharing industry, I feel we have made the shift from not only providing connectivity for micromobility, but to a company that actually makes micromobility” said the Co-Founder and CEO of COMODULE, Kristjan Maruste.
 

COMODULE e-scooter is built with steel and is 92% recyclable after its lifetime of 5 years is over. Only clean energy is used to build it and it is manufactured from 42% recycled materials. With its unique swappable dual battery design, it has a range of 40 kilometres (25 miles). Its top speed and safety equipment can be customized to local regulations. 

The e-scooter itself is very good to ride. It is equipped with large pneumatic tires, a wider standing area (can ride feet parallel to each other), wider handlebar and lower centre of gravity for more comfort and stability especially in the rain and on uneven terrain. In addition, the braking distance of the e-scooter is significantly shorter than the market standard. 

 

“As with different car brands, e-scooters have different levels of quality and comfort. Our scooter is like the Volvo of the car industry, safe and durable” said Kristjan.

 


COMODULE connects light electric vehicles to the internet to enable new mobility services. The company manufactures and offers electronic telematics hardware, mostly for fleet operators and vehicle manufacturers. COMODULE has connected over 200 000 e-scooters and has helped to launch fleets in over 60 cities worldwide.

 

Using its market knowledge, COMODULE has now developed its own connected vehicle for the shared mobility use-case. “We are all so excited to be able to test our precious Co-Scooter in our backyard under a local brand Tuul” in order to improve and develop it further. At the moment the scooter is not available for other markets; our goal is to quickly test it in a smaller market, so that it will be ready to scale when the global situation has normalised” said Kristjan.
