E.ON decided to support the launch of an electric scooter service in Budapest.In the summer of 2018, the company supports an outstanding initiation in Hungary together with a Hungarian startup called blink.city: they are going to give 50 new electric community scooters to the city of Budapest.
The new vehicle sharing system makes the city transport cleaner, faster, quieter and more cost-effective at the same time. It is also a 100% environmentally friendly solution for traffic jams and parking problems.
Blinkee.city Ltd. is the first foreign partner company of the owner of blinkee.city which is a Hungarian startup founded by a Hungarian family. They all believe in a special model that is based on such a technology development which can fundamentally influence the future of transport, while helping to promote environmentally-friendly vehicle use. Blinkee.city’s Hungarian team is open for innovations and they are fond of challenges, while they are also committed to providing added value to the city.
The new community electric scooter system can be handled via a mobile application. After registering, the user can select the closest available vehicle using the application map. Users have to pay per minute, and student discounts are also available. The blinkee.city electric scooters can use up to 3,1 KW engine power and can be used up to 60 km with their 35 Ah batteries. Anyone can use the community scooters above the age of 16 and with at least a AM category license which is older than 6 months. Wearing a helmet is required on the electric scooters, but this is part of the service, too.
