Honda is reviving a quirky '80s concept with a modern twist—say hello to the Motocompacto! It's an electric scooter designed to fit neatly in the trunk of your compact car, and Honda is bringing it back as part of their push towards electrification and carbon neutrality.
The Motocompacto is like a briefcase-shaped scooter that's perfect for that last leg of your commute.
It's powered by a 6.8Ah battery, giving it a range of around 12 miles on a single charge, and it recharges fairly quickly in just 3.5 hours from a regular 110V plug. It has a 490-watt motor that has a peak speed of 15 mph, and because of its small size and folding construction, you can simply transport it inside or store it in the trunk of your car. If you need to store more than one, it may also be stacked.
The carmaker did not forgo durability or safety. It contains reflectors, LED lights, and a strong frame made of heat-treated aluminum. Even though it weighs 41.3 lbs, it's still doable. The best part is that it is reasonably priced, beginning at just $995. In addition, Honda provides a variety of branded shirts, backpacks, and accessories. Get ready to travel the city in eco-friendly style!
