The Scrooser Electric Scooter Hits the Market

It took years, but now German Scrooser GmbH is finally releasing this unique electric scooter.

The Scrooser an electric scooter, which provides a completely new driving experience with its fat tires and its unique frame geometry. The electric motor is installed in the rear wheel and is powered by a 36V lithium-ion battery. The Scrooser has a range of up to 34 miles (55 kilometers).

It took the team around Jens Thieme, inventor and innovator of the electric scooter, several years to get the Scrooser ready for production. The startup had a Kickstarter campaign back in 2013 raising close to $200,000.

"You get little goosebumps. We have been working hard for this moment. Now the Scrooser is ready for the market," says Thieme.

The Scrooser impresses through its clean lines and hidden user interface. To start the Scrooser you just push off with your foot. Like magic the scooter accelerates automatically. The intensity of the push determines the speed of acceleration. The extra-wide tires give the Scrooser the unique driving feeling of gliding.

The Scrooser is available in three engine versions. To drive the strongest and fastest version you need a driver's license, insurance and must wear a helmet. With this version you can drive up to 15.5mph (25 km/h) on the road. However, there is also a version that you can drive on sidewalks, therefore you wouldn’t need any special requirements, insurance and or helmet.

The German company offers different models and engines of the Scrooser starting at 4,490 Euro (~ $5,000). Coolness has its price.
