A SPACE-AGE e-scooter has been revealed with F1 tech, built by the same people involved in supercars and F1.
Lavoie is a new brand born out of McLaren Applied Technologies and its first model is this, the Series 1.
It's an e-scooter, but probably the most advanced e-scooter on the market today.
Lavoie is made up of automotive designers and F1 engineers, so naturally, the Series 1 is made of automotive-grade magnesium.

That makes it tough but also light for an e-scooter at 16.5kg.

Hence its patented 'Flowfold' feature, which allows it to fold up smaller than any of its rivals.

It does nearly 30mph where allowed and even has special wide tyres designed to withstand potholes and bumps on our tired British roads.
But that's not all – the Series 1 illuminates the rider so they're better seen at night.
And rather than having to take a dodgy look at Google Maps on your phone while on the move, the scooter has a built-in turn-by-turn nav.
If your Series 1 gets stolen, it has an alarm and as a fully connected scooter, you can even track where it's off to on your phone.
How much for all this? Well, prices aren't confirmed, but when the order books open in January it'll cost between £1500-£2000.
Not cheap, but not surprising given the design, tech and people behind it.
It's the supercar of e-scooters after all.
