All of this can be a fuss, as patents often do not reach the production stage.
Vehicles are placed for redundancy
Hyundai Motor Co., Ltd. has revealed the concept of a foldable scooter that can be stored in the trunk of a car. The Korean giant has issued a patent application, which is now being discovered by Drive. Although classified as a foldable personal mobility vehicle, the patent application dates back to 2017, even though it was published in 2019.
As shown, the new device is so small that it fits under the floor as well as inside the trunk. The patent application reveals the folding mechanism of the scooter and shows an additional battery that suggests that it probably has an electrically driven train.
There are also illustrations for charging and pedestrian safety. The charging mechanism is under the trunk with a fake engine sound so that pedestrians can know its presence. It’s also small enough to fit inside a Tuscan and Santa Cruz pickup.
All of this can be a fuss, as patents often do not reach the production stage. Anyway, this looks like a complex system to implement.
