Volvo’s Polestar brand showed renders of an electric hybrid of a manual wheelbarrow and an electric scooter in early spring this year. Unlike many projects, it turned out that the company brought the idea to a technical implementation and presented a working prototype of Re: Move.
Externally, the three-wheeled carriage has changed little since March – with the exception that now it is not a 3D render, but a real and very useful transport in some cases. In fact, Re: Move is a typical electric scooter with a speed of up to 25 km / h and a battery with a capacity of 2.2 kWh.
At the same time, Re: Move is capable of transporting about 180 kg (previously the manufacturer promised a carrying capacity of about 270 kg). In many cases, the model can serve as a better alternative to vans – the model is about 70 cm wide, so it will easily fit on some tracks designed specifically for motor vehicles and easily bypass traffic jams. The user can count on always-on lights, brake lights and the ability to sound an audible signal.
So far, Polestar, which makes not the cheapest electric cars, has not announced how soon it will begin mass production of Re: Move, whether it will happen at all and how much the model will cost in that case. In theory, the novelty can be in great demand in places with warm climates or in the summer for delivery of all kinds of orders by couriers.
