Electric scooters are in demand not only in India, but also worldwide. Mob-ion is a French mobility startup that has been in the news quite often lately. They have now unveiled their new electric scooter called AM1.

AM1 is one of the first electric two-wheelers made entirely in France and has AFNOR accreditation, one of the strictest in the industry. It stands for Association Fran├žaise de Normalization and to get this accreditation, at least 50 percent of production must be in France.

About 70 percent of all electric scooter parts are produced in France. With the installation of more production lines, this percentage is expected to increase in the future. The AM1 is L1e certified, which means that it is classified in the moped category.

Specifications Mob-ion AM1 electric scooter

According to specifications, AM1 is powered by a brushless electric motor rated at 3 kW. This motor draws power from two removable batteries located under the seat, providing a range of 140km on a single charge.

The company claims it takes two hours and thirty minutes for the batteries to be fully rejuvenated. The scooter can reach a top speed of 45 km/h. When it comes to features, AM1 is loaded with all the modern amenities expected in a battery powered scooter.

This includes LED headlights, a GPS-based location system, reverse gear and an anti-theft system with remote shutdown via computer or smartphone. It also gets a digital instrument console that displays crucial information such as battery level, remaining range, etc.

Price electric scooter

The scooter weighs 92 kg, which is very manoeuvrable for a battery-powered two-wheeler and has a total load capacity of 260 kg. AM1 is offered in two iterations: a single-seater and a two-seater. The former will likely be mostly used by last-mile services.

Mob-ion has priced the AM1 at EUR 3,582 (equivalent to INR 3.04 lakh), making it quite a bit more expensive than most electric scooters for sale in India. The French EV startup also offers the electric scooter for a monthly subscription fee of 99 euros. It’s pretty obvious that at this price point, it probably won’t make it to Indian shores for the foreseeable future.
