Each new vehicle will be equipped with directional arrows, a phone holder, a bag holder, a long-lasting battery with a range of 50 miles, improved front suspension, and a disc caliper brake. Additionally, each vehicle will have LED lights on the side to increase safety, solid tires to allow for better adaptability to different surfaces, and a resized riding platform to reduce and avoid two riders using the vehicle simultaneously. In line with local regulations, the speed of the vehicles is set remotely at 12 mph. In addition, the scooter is equipped with a cutting-edge IoT system that allows greater precision in GPS location to prevent theft and increase the accuracy of geo-fenced parking. Moreover, each scooter will be equipped with an identification label to be easily recognizable and a double kickstand to ensure greater stability and a fall sensor.
The first vehicles will be deployed in Milan, Pescara, and Naples, and Helbiz will host meetings with citizens and institutions next month for test drives and safety training.
