Tips on how to choose the best e-scooter for your fleet

As the first scooter boom has blown over, we are seeing a change in scooter-sharing. At first, time to market and expansion was the number one goal. Hundreds of millions of VC money flowed into scooter-sharing companies and in exchange, those companies needed to show they can multiply their fleets quarter after quarter. That is no longer the case.

Case study: SURF

Surf opened its service in the autumn of 2021 in Oslo, Norway. In August, the city government decided to strongly limit the number of scooters in the city and Surf was one of the operators to establish the fleet. Until then, Oslo used to be one of the most scooter-populated cities in Europe with a staggering 30’000 e-scooters. That was now limited to 8’000 pcs & a dozen of operators. Not all of them did manage to launch their service in a given short time frame, but Surf guys certainly did. 

Case study: Tuul

Tuul, wind in Estonian, launched its service in spring 2020. As we saw how destructive the e-scooter fleet business is for the planet, we knew we wanted to change that. We teamed up with the most sustainably produced kick-scooter brand Äike to challenge the first thing that was wrong in this field – the scooters didn’t last.
