‘The Rise of Enclosed Electric Scooters in Personal Mobility’

E-bikes and e-scooters are becoming increasingly popular in today’s world of personal mobility, offering a wide array of options for consumers. While many of these new vehicles share similarities, some are breaking the mold and introducing unique features that cater to different needs.

Enter the Avvenire Tectus, a three-wheeled mobility scooter that offers a distinctive enclosed design. This enclosure provides riders with the comfort of amenities like air conditioning and heating while shielding them from the elements. While the interior of the Tectus may seem basic compared to luxury vehicles like Mercedes-Benz, the scooter makes up for it with a range of impressive features.

Despite a modest top speed of 20 mph, the Tectus boasts throttle acceleration with a reverse function, a storage compartment, a stereo, a navigation system, an “alarm clock” feature, and even a back-up camera with some autonomous driving capabilities. One standout feature is the option for trickle charging using solar power, with the potential for a quick two-hour fast charge and a remarkable 99-mile range.

Additionally, the Tectus offers various configurations, including a cargo-oriented model with open storage in the back. However, these unique features come at a cost, with prices starting at around ,000 and potentially increasing with added extras.

Avvenire plans to begin shipping the Tectus this year, adding to their lineup of unconventional electric scooters and bikes, such as the Spiritus half-car. While some may view these vehicles as ambitious concepts, the Tectus stands out for its blend of innovation and functionality, making it a compelling option for those seeking a truly unique riding experience.
