AARHUS, DENMARK – 12 Sep, 2017 – A small team of three tenacious and entrepreneurial souls have attempted to bring the idea of an electric scooter for city transportation to life – for instance intermediate commute between the metro and work or home.
Together the team developed moodbik, a portable scooter for the city dweller, manifested through a clean, stringent and Scandinavian design.
The idea arose from a despair towards the immense traffic density in Shanghai, where Alexander Schandorff and Anders Ellegaard both have lived for the past 3 and 5 years respectively.
–It is precisely a product like moodbik one needs as a typical city dweller in order to be able to get from A to B effectively, says Alexander, who through his working experience in Shanghai contributes significantly to the business development aspects of moodbik.
Having resided in China for many years, the guys behind moodbik have on their own account witnessed, and felt the substantial pollution circumstance that rests in China first hand. Therefore, it has been of the outmost priority for the team that the driving technology of the scooter was to be electric, in thread with the worldwide EV wave that currently moves to make our planet greener.
–With our Chinese manufacturing partner, we have tried to create a mean of transportation that will satisfy urban citizens need for intermediate transportation without compromising on the solid Scandinavian design values, says Anders Ellegaard; who holds a background as M.sc. in industrial Design.
With a weight of only 8 kg. and with its collapsible design, the moodbik offers easy handling for the user.
The team behind moodbik has produced a presentation video of the scooter, recorded in the ever vibrant metropolis of Shanghai to emphasize that it is a transport vehicle for urban use and to acknowledge the place where the idea was originally born.
The team’s vision is to offer moodbik to residents in all major cities via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
