About

Introducing: ORCA Mark I Electric Scooter
Introducing: ORCA Mark I Electric Scooter

We designed ORCA Mark I with the riders in mine. We were looking for a scooter that can be used for daily commute, not just fancy electric scooters that can only travel 3-4km. On a single charge, the ORCA Mark I is able to travel up to 60 kilometres, equivalent to 37 miles.

The ORCA Mark I is made of aircraft-grade aluminium alloy, it's light, most importantly, it is very durable. 

The dimensions of the ORCA Mark I, compact yet pack lots of battery juice. It does the job of covering your last mile travel, you really never have to get stuck in the traffic again. No more charging of electric scooter every single day when you had only used it for 1-2km. 

Fit it in the trunk of your car easily. Bring it everywhere with you. Many of us have that dreadful last mile travel, right? Where the last mile journey consists of bumpy, inconsistent roads. Small scooters just don't cut it. 

Go over humps comfortably with your triple suspension systems.

Secure your ORCA with our built in internal anti-theft alarm system. An alarm will be triggered if someone tries to:

  • Unplug the power cord
  • Shake or touch the ORCA scooter
  • Turn the handle bar
  • Sit or stand on the ORCA scooter
  • Remove the battery

Battery is included in each remote control key, the alarm is 120dB loud. Alarm is highly noticeable. Power-cut feature will be enabled if someone turns on the scooter.

User-friendly, ORCA Mark I is really easy to use. You don't even need a manual. This is suitable for riders of all ages.

Comes together with your ORCA Mark I packaging.

Risks and challenges

Despite our detailed planning, developing and manufacturing a high-tech product is a great challenge, as you can imagine. That is why we have worked relentlessly for the past year and will continue to work this way. We are also partnering with world renowned parts suppliers including matured factories in order to reduce production risks to a minimum. We love our vehicle and we think that everybody should get the chance to ride the ORCA.

The final product will be assembled by a contract manufacturer under our supervision. The ramp-up of the production for a new product requires a lot of attention to details. Tolerances may need to be adjusted or tools may need a redesign. These changes will become necessary during the planned sampling phase when we receive the first vehicles from mass production. These changes contain the potential to delay the production and delivery in the order of weeks to months. Of course, these are regular challenges of manufacturing a new hardware product. There can be unforeseen issues leading to delays, but we promise to do everything in our power to reduce the impact of such events as much as possible.

Even a simple light electric vehicle involves many components and services that we source from other suppliers, and supplier credibility and quality is always a challenge in the world of manufacturing. We leverage the influence our manufacturing partner has over component and service providers to ensure a steady stream of quality components. Although our partners have strong track records working with their suppliers for many years, we’ve separately identified multiple suppliers for the same components during our two-year design phase. We have established testing methodologies and metrics for our components, and have quality control programs established for volume production.

Our partners, who have years of experience delivering excellent products in large quantities, have enough confidence that our design will be liked by customers that they are willing to work with a small team at very reasonable price. There may be some surprises as we begin manufacturing, but we believe any challenges will be overcome by combining experience and dedication, and our overall goal of making the best possible product.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to making the ORCA Mark I a reality and a boon to commuters and the environment. Help us make your commute fun and clean by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page and helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

Most importantly, our priority is to be fully transparent in our communication to you, our backers. We only have one interest: delivering the best and most convenient electric vehicle to you.

THANK YOU.
