Audi unveiled its combined electric scooter and skateboard, the e-tron Scooter, in August. It has a range of 12.5 miles and can go up to 12.5 mph. The scooter, which a rider can operate with one hand, can be folded and stored in the back of a vehicle.
Audi said the scooter could also be available as part of a fleet in urban areas or offered as an extra to customers who buy Audi e-tron models. With specific models, the e-scooter could be charged in the vehicle's trunk through a socket. The scooter is set to be available late next year.
