After last month's announcement of Audi acquiring Ducati, It was just a matter of time that Benz also got into some kind of action in this space, as BMW is already present in this segment. But unlike BMW and Audi, Mercedes is not going to launch some super,hyper sport's bike instead they will be launching this futuristic ally designed scooter which runs on battery and not on any liquid. This product will be launched under the Smart brand,it will be called E-Scooter with a target launch date in 2014. This is what the exec VP of Mercedes Benz has to say:
“The decision in favor of the escooter has been made,” said Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President of Mercedes-Benz Cars, on the sidelines of the international dealer meeting in Davos, Switzerland. “With this step, we are adding a further important component to our smart mobility concept for urban mobility in the future”.
