Naon Zero-One electric scooter prototype revealed in two variants
German automaker Naon has revealed the Zero-One e-scooter prototype in its home country. It is available in two variants: L1e and L3e. As for the highlights, the vehicle sports a futuristic design and offers a single bar LED headlamp as well as a flat seat. It is fueled by an electric powertrain and promises a range of up to 140km.
Why does this story matter?
The Naon Zero-One is made of recycled materials and its manufacturing process is eco-friendly, too. Its unique looks and decent range should attract a lot of buyers in the global markets. The two-wheeler is unlikely to arrive on our shores as it is too costly for the market. If it does come here, it will rival the Ola S1 Pro and Ather 450X.
The scooter has a windscreen and small storage compartment
The Naon Zero-One sits on an aluminium frame and has a transparent windscreen, a large footboard, a wide handlebar, a single-piece seat, and a rear tire hugger-mounted number plate holder. The scooter packs an LED headlight, an under-seat taillamp, and uses the rider's smartphone mounted onto the handlebar to serve as an instrument cluster. A small underseat storage compartment is also available.
It hits a top speed of 100km/h
Naon Zero-One packs an electric motor, two detachable 2.4kWh batteries, and delivers a range of up to 140km. The L1e variant has an output of 3kW and a top speed of 45km/h. Meanwhile, the L3e model generates 7kW and attains a top speed of 100km/h.
It gets dual-channel ABS
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Naon Zero-One is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the electric scooter are taken care of by inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
