What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Inspired in the car industry, with elegant yet dynamic and sportive design lines, the AKTIVO Scoot looks like no other. Finally a powerful scooter to hit the roads in style. 

Built to perform.

 Elegance meets performance. 

The AKTIVO Scoot has the perfect balance between elegance and performance. It is built out of a single-piece magnesium frame, and is propelled by an astonishing empty wheel electric motor. With a 1000W brushless motor, the AKTIVO Scoot is the most powerful scooter in the market. 

AKTIVO Scoot’s 1000W hubless electric motor is by far the most powerful motor in an electric scooter of this category to date. This innovative brushless motor uses a set of 60 magnets to deliver an unprecedented torque output and speed control to take you literally anywhere. Besides looking out of this world, the system features position lights, and braking lights together with a high efficiency ceramic brake. 

Forget about pushing your scooter uphill, the AKTIVO Scoot handles 20 degrees slopes like a champ. Our engineers have spent countless hours developing a true vehicle to take you anywhere. From going to work, to getting quick errands done; from catching that gym class on time, to lunch break escapes; AKTIVO Scoot is the perfect personal transporter. 

AKTIVO Scoot’s 13kg and quick folding mechanism create a fully portable last mile vehicle. Easily stored in the trunk of your car or sideways in the subway/train, the AKTIVO Scoot is always ready to help you commute to your next destination. 

Check your speed and battery levels while riding. Control your position and front headlight as you cruise at night. Connect to the AKTIVO App to get full access to extended functions such as riding modes, travelling distance, statistics, hardware health, and more. 

The AKTIVO App gets you real time insights on your vehicle’s condition, battery charging status, information about your trips, and complete data log. Through the AKTIVO App you can select the riding mode that best suits your need: FUN or ECO. Furthermore, you can update the AKTIVO Scoot latest software, learn how to properly ride your vehicle or check the remaining autonomy while planning your day trips. All of this is possible from the AKTIVO App. 

*Note that the app is still under development and will be ready by August 2018.

 While most scooters in the market offer 1A chargers performing a single battery charge in about 5 hours, at AKTIVO we believe recharging as fast as possible is key to completing your daily journey. That's why we offer 2A or 3A chargers with our Scoot packages charging the battery in 3 or 2 hours

At AKTIVO we develop futuristic electric transporters, that are efficient, look stunning and are a joy to ride.

At AKTIVO we have been always in the forefront of innovation in the electric power systems space for personal transporters: from the first micro brushless motors, to creating the compact hub motor wheels fitted in most of the electric skateboards around the world, to the current AKTIVO Scoot hubless wheel. Our engineers have been leading the breakthroughs until today. 

Our team 

Our international team unites real experts on electric motors, engineers and product developpers. Acquiring know-how through research and development of electric aviation power systems. Some of us were in the team creating the ultralight electric skateboard, E-Go Cruiser, in 2013. And from there, we have manufacture more than 100,000 electric skateboards since 2015.

A partnership with EWHEELIN to guarantee the success of our project. 

At AKTIVO we control every single step of the manufacturing process. We want to deliver high quality vehicles with the latest technologies and streamlined cost structure. To ensure this, we took the decision to conduct all the adding value processes in-house together with EWHEELIN, one of the biggest manufacturers of electric motors for personal transporters. 

AKTIVO Scoot motor prototypes. 

AKTIVO Scoot has been in development for over 18 months. We are currently developing the AKTIVO App, Beta testing 10 scooters in real life conditions and setting up our supply chain structure. We will be posting more details about assembly and last software updates before the campaign ends. 

Why are we on Kickstarter? 

During the last 18 months we have invested all our passion, time and budget in creating the most stunning looking scooter in the market. This campaign is our window to the world, in order to help us set up our marketing strategy, and build a community online, reaching people all around the world. While creating and developing high technology products is our strength, we hope kickstarter will gives the kick-start to expand our mission worldwide.

Risks and challenges

Thanks to our 10 years experience in developing electric power systems for electric aviation and small personal transportation, we are confident we can execute this project in time and at the best standards possible.

Manufacturing:
A team of product designers and engineers (some of whom were in the team developing the renowned E-GO Cruiser), have teamed up with electric skateboard manufacturer E-WHEELIN to ensure every single step of the manufacturing is achieved successfully.
We have our own manufacturing plant, we produce our own power systems and assemble each scooter in our facilities in China.
Also the entire supply chain and supplier portfolio has been confirmed and tooling plus moulding have also been finished.
The AKTIVO App is being developed and fine tuned, and the scooter's software is being tested to maximize the riding confort.

We will ship the scooters to our backers in badges making sure each vehicle is bullet proof and if any problem occurs, the next badge is updated with the latest improvements.

Every single scooter comes with 6 months warranty on any manufacturers defects.
