OjO Electric to bring sit-down electric scooters to Austin

OjO Electric will bring sit down scooters to Austin that have a range of 50 miles on a single charge and top speed of 20 mph.

OjO Electric announced their launch for a commute-focused electric scooter rideshare in Austin on Jan. 8, in a partnership with Austin Commuter Scooter, LLC., which operates the Austin B-cycle System.

The company's scooters are a bit different from most of the electric scooters you have seen around town, due to the fact they are sit-down scooters.

"OjO Electric is taking shared-use scooters to the next level, greatly improving the accessibility and range of scooters with our groundbreaking commuter scooter, equipped with a seat, so riders can stand or sit," said Max Smith, CEO of OjO Electric. "This is truly a scooter for everyone." 

The new scooters will be able to go 50 miles on a full charge and have a top speed of 20 mph.

The company said their new scooters will also have navigation, traffic alerts, construction zones, geo-fence approaches, speed reduction zone alerts and nearby docking location alerts that are all run through the on-board speakers. The speakers will also allow the rider to have the ability to play music through Bluetooth.
