Modern, eco-friendly cities try to encourage people to use cars as little as possible. To encourage people use cars less, cities must impose more taxes on cars. They must also provide a good infrastructure for public transportation. However, even in the cities that have the best public transport in the world, people are still faced with a major problem: the last mile solution. No public transportation system will ever be able to get you directly from where you are to your destination. So how can we solve the last mile solution? Well, the answer has been right in front of you for more than 7 years: the E-TWOW ultraportable scooter!
A better understanding of the last mile problem
The last mile problem is inevitable. You may need to walk a few minutes until you get to a means of transport or walk a little when changing different means of transportation. Depending on how big a city is or how developed the public transport system is, you may need to walk a few minutes or half an hour. The last mile solution can be a problem even for people with cars. As parking places become more and more scarce, it becomes increasingly difficult to park next to one’s destination.
How to deal with the last mile?
There are only two viable ways in which you can deal with the last mile. The first option is to walk it. Let’s assume that you are in shape and you enjoy walking. Wouldn’t you much rather use that time to walk in the park at the end of the day, than to walk during rush hour? So, there’s gotta be a better solution to the last mile problem. An adequate solution is an ultra-portable vehicle. The vehicle must be big enough so that you can take it on a means of public transport. Bikes are out of the question because they are too big and heavy and they are not even allowed on many public transport systems. Skateboards are only an option if you are young, fit, and can wear sports attire all the time. The solution that can fit all people is an ultra-portable e-scooter.
Why the E-TWOW scooter is the ultimate last mile solution
Nowadays, are several electric scooters to choose from. Most people must make a compromise between power/range and portability. Commuters dealing with the last mile will always choose portability to the detriment of power and range. But what if you didn’t have to choose?

Our scooters kept getting more powerful over the years but we never compromised portability for power. This is why our scooters have the best torque for their weight category.
