Our aim

     - To attract the widest range of customers, we need to create a machine with a strong personality, avoiding any association with the buggy, and not a pale imitation of an automobile. The scooto is a new approach to urban mobility situated between the scooter and the micro-urban vehicle.

Our choice

          - Roof protection / bubble (type BMW-C1) tilting (maximum accessibility)
          - Plastic heat-formed bodywork
          - Boot / drawer for storing a folding bicycle

Mechanics :

          - Aluminium tubular chassis
          - Engine fitted in the central bar (type T-Max Yamaha)
          - Clean energy: twin-cylinder hot gas or electric motors + battery
          - Drive by universal Cardan joints to the rear wheels
          - Drive-by-Wire type steering
          - 4 arms (longitudinally interacting springs / shock absorbers)
          - Sequential gearbox

Main uses :


          - From 16 years of age as preparation for driving cars
          - Journeys to school, leisure, second or third vehicle

And its numerous variants:
