Volkswagen to Sell Folding 'Last Mile Surfer'

It folds and stows in your truck, yet offers up to 12 miles of 'last mile' travel range.

EV World normally doesn't spend much, if any, time on electric kick scooters. They are pretty much a 'dime a dozen,' along with electric skateboards.

What's different this time is who's hawking one: Volkswagen. Called the 'Last Mile Surfer', it's a folding kick scooter that weights 11 kg and offers a range up to 12.4 miles. You stand on the two foot rests and steer it with the joystick, as shown in the two images below. Supposedly, it will go on sale in 2016 and sell for €1,000 in the EU or £700 in the UK.

And then there's our K15 that's nearly as light and far more versatile, but no, you can't fold it up and lock it in the boot.
