The e-Kick scooter

• PEUGEOT and MICRO have teamed up to design an integrated mobility solution
• The e-Kick scooter is being announced as part of the launch of the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV
• e-Kick can be used to extend journey mobility and charged-up when carried in the vehicle’s boot

PEUGEOT and MICRO have teamed up to design the e-Kick – an electrically assisted scooter to meet the challenge of a constantly evolving urban environment. e-Kick provides an unprecedented multi- mobility experience, helping to provide a fully independent transport solution to cover the ‘last-mile’ of any journey. Unveiled today during the launch of the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, e-Kick will be sold by both PEUGEOT and MICRO starting in the last quarter of 2016.

PEUGEOT has historically placed mobility at the heart of its mission. It is the only brand in the world that sells bicycles, and two and three-wheel scooters to complete its wide range of passenger and light commercial vehicles. MICRO is the reference for kick-scooters, and it has offered customised family mobility solutions for the last 20 years.

PEUGEOT and MICRO share a common vision of future urban mobility solutions and combined their expertise to design the e-Kick. The e-Kick electrically assisted scooter offers an active, natural, and flexible user experience, created to optimise intra-city journeys by adapting to any circumstances and desire.

Compact, and with a contained weight of only 8.5kg, the e-Kick includes multiple major innovations:
– A ‘Motion Control’ electric assistance system developed by MICRO has a Lithium Ion battery built into the ultra-thin platform with the motor integrated directly into the rear wheel. The e-Kick optimises the level of electric assistance based on user movements and provides a range potential of 12km / 7.5miles
– It allows for speeds of up to 25km/h / 15mph, and is equipped with a foot-brake that is accompanied by a regenerative braking system that recharges the battery
– An innovative handlebar is designed by Peugeot Design Lab: the e-Kick’s mechanism allows it to be easily folded in a few seconds and to be rolled along on its front wheel so that the user doesn’t have to carry it.

Unveiled today at the launch of the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, the e-Kick is designed for customers who are looking for mobility solutions that go hand in hand with their vehicle. A ‘dockstation’ allows the user to store the e-Kick in the boot of the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, and it also recharges the battery while the vehicle is driving. Outside of the car, the scooter can also be recharged in about an hour.

“e-Kick is a truly multi-modal designed not just to be a mobility solution in itself but also to link all the other solutions together. The two handles used in driving mode fold up into a single handle that allows the scooter to be rolled along on one wheel, making it effortless to hop from your home to your car to a train to your work” explains Cathal Loughnane, Peugeot Design Lab Manager.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
