Jeep unveils the Razor RX200 electric off-road scooter for riders weighing less than 154 lb
More and more reputable automakers are entering the electric kick scooter market segment. Just a few months ago, we reported on the French luxury brand Bugatti which opted to release its very first EV in form of an electric scooter rather than a supercar like the iconic Veyron. An American company is now following suit and has revealed its new and upcoming two-wheeled EV.
In collaboration with Razor, Jeep has announced the fittingly named Jeep Razor RX200 electric off-road scooter, which does not seem to differ much from the already available Razor RX200 that is currently sold for US$318 on Amazon. Jeeps offering will also be powered by a rather weak 200W electric motor, which can accelerate the electric scooter to a top speed of comfortable 12 mph. According to the official spec sheet, the maximum rider weight for this scooter is apparently limited to just 154 lb, which could be an issue for many adult riders.
The fairly outdated 168 Wh lead-acid battery in the Jeep Razor RX200 battery provides a ride time of around 40 minutes, and the overall weight of this electric off-road scooter comes in at slightly under 40 lb. Even though this EV does not feature a legitimate off-road suspension like for example the Okai ES800, its beefy 8-inch tires and the dual LED headlights should ensure that the Jeep Razor RX200 can tackle more or less rough terrain with relative ease. Pricing for this new electric off-road scooter will start at US$499.
