Scoot Quad – the First Four-Wheel Vehicle
Sarah Buhr meets with Mike Waltman, VP of Fleet at Scoot, to check out the Quad.
Scoot, the San Francisco-based electric scooter ride share network, has teamed up with Nissan to create a four-wheeled two-seater enclosed vehicle onto the streets of San Francisco. Starting today, Scoot members have the option to rent one of these little cars to get them anywhere in the streets.
Known as the Scoot Quad, this is an all-electric vehicle that you can turn on with the push of your smartphone. Just 10 of these little vehicles are ready to hit the road… However, that’s just the beginning.
The Quad is a bit of an experiment for both Scoot and Nissan. “As large cities continue to grow into megacities globally, we need to understand how transportation is changing and look ahead to anticipate what transportation needs will look like in the future,” Nissan Future Lab executive director Rachel Nguyen said.
