Scoot Networks adds two-seater Nissan EVs to San Francisco car sharing fleet
The Nissan New Mobility Concept, also known as a Scoot Quad, offers a range of 40 miles and top speed of 25mph and is being evaluated on a number of car sharing services across the globe.
“As large cities continue to grow into megacities globally, we need to understand how transportation is changing and look ahead to anticipate what transportation needs will look like in the future,” said Rachel Nguyen, executive director, Nissan Future Lab. “Scoot Networks is an ideal partner in this research project because they are fulfilling a need that has emerged in the San Francisco market, and they share a similar commitment to zero-emissions mobility.”
The Scoot Quad joins the existing 400 customised electric scooters on the Scoot fleet and marks its first four-wheel vehicle.
“Scoot isn’t just for scooters. If it’s small, electric and fun, you will be able to find it in the Scoot app and ride it all over the city,” said Michael Keating, founder and CEO, Scoot Networks. “We are proud to partner with Nissan to make a new form of urban electric mobility available to our riders.”
Scoot members can use the Scoot Networks app — offered on both iOS and Android devices — to find the nearest Scoot Quad. Rides start at $8 per half-hour or $80 per day.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
