Car enthusiasts will know that Audi has been working on an EV for quite some time, but while the GT is still in its concept stages, the German automakers have decided to roll out another electric vehicle instead, but it’s not a car — it’s the brand’s first electric four-wheeled scooter, also named the E-Tron.

The E-Tron can be described as an electric scooter combined with a skateboard, carrying four wheels instead of the two that you normally find from services such as Lime, Bird, or Skip. Performance-wise, the E-Tron scooter can reach up to a maximum speed of 12.5 mph, with a range of also 12.5 miles. The gadget weighs around 26 pounds, with the battery built into the handle bar accompanied by a charge indicator. Much like a motorcycle, acceleration is achieved through twisting the bar, and to brake, you simply twist in the reverse direction. For safety, front and rear lights have also been included, with the rear lights capable of acting as brake lights. As a next step for the E-Tron scooter, Audi has announced plans to build in Bluetooth connectivity.

For those interested in an Audi EV and don’t want to wait years for the Concept GT to turn into a reality, the E-Tron scooter will be available some time in 2020, with a price tag of around €2,000 EUR, or roughly $2,240 USD.

Elsewhere in automotive news, Royal Enfield has released its Classic 500 in a Stealth Black makeover.
