Archos has announced its Android-powered Citee Electric Scooter. The transport features an integrated Android device with 3G connectivity right in the handlebars for for the use of navigation apps such as Google maps.
The all-aluminium construction gives the Citee strength in a lightweight package; the whole scooter only weighs in at 12KG. It features 8.5-inch puncture-proof wheels mated to a 250-watt motor and 36-watt battery. Archos claims that it can last “over 25 kilometers in urban areas” on a single charge. It can also recoup some of the power through regenerative braking. On the move the Citee can support loads of up to 100KG and go up to 25KM/h.
The integrated Android device is powered by an unknown “quad-core processor”, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. At least it comes with Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box and a 5-inch screen to display maps and navigational information. Other important stats shown includes distance travelled, as well as the charge status of the on-board battery.
Archos will be shipping the Citee from April onwards with a sticker price of €499.99 (RM 2,410). Currently there are no news on availability outside of Europe.
