Škoda introduced its Klement mobility concept at the Geneva Motor Show, providing an insight into the car manufacturer’s vision for the future of micromobility in cities: electric, innovative, and modern. The integrated 4-kW rear hub motor accelerates the Klement to a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph), and the throttle and brake control are performed via pivoting pedals to improve handling. A hydraulic brake at the front equipped with ABS as well as LED lights integrated into the concept are designed for a safe ride at all times. The Klement also traces back to the company’s roots 124 years ago when the story of Škoda began with the manufacture of bicycles under founding fathers Laurin and Klement.
Guido Haak, Head of Product Management at Škoda Auto, said, “Micromobility is becoming increasingly important in cities. By presenting the Klement at the Geneva Motor Show, we are showcasing our vision for the future of micromobility: sustainable, innovative, electric, and with a pure, modern design. The Klement is a state-of-the-art, dynamic, and easy-to-use vehicle, and allows the Škoda brand to further appeal to a younger target group with a heightened sense of environmental awareness. The concept is perfectly aligned with our customers and our eMobility strategy. We are therefore assessing whether, and how, this exciting, new mobility concept can be added to our portfolio in the future.”
