200 electric scooters are to arrive in Switzerland to form a new rental fleet in Zurich. Built by Etrix and managed by Mobility, the two-wheelers will free float and can be booked without reservation and every minute counts.
The electric scooters can be spotted easily in their all-red design. The national touch continues as they are made by Swiss Etrix AG which specialises in electric two-wheelers. The fleet will be available all around town as they follow the free floating principle.
Users may pick them up and leave them where they stand, given it is on a designated scooter parking lot that Zurich introduced. Operator Mobility requires no reservations and the pay-as-you-go system counts per minute. One minute costs 0,25 CHFm, that is about 20 euro cents.
The Etrix S02i electric scooter has a range of up to 150 kilometres and a top speed of 45 kph. To rent, you need an A1 driver’s license and Mobility offers 30 francs to those taking scooter lessons. Each scooter has two helmets on board.
