The Be.e is the first frameless bio-composite electric scooter designed by Dutch design studio Waarmakers and developed in collaboration with InHolland, NPSP composites and van.eko. The bike has been built with monocoque body made from flax and bio resin, which makes it extremely sustainable, lightweight and durable.
“We were responsible for the overall design of the scooter, it’s monocoque and detailed parts. A task which challenged not only our engineering skills, but also our abilities to design a shape, an image, which communicates it’s unique configuration in an elegant but distinct way.”
Similar to the Bixi bike concept, the be.e scooter was presented as a pay-per use solution making it suitable for city commuting as well as long distance trips. While the concept would work great within city limits, it seems like it might be a bit of a problem on the highway or countryside with batteries allowing the user to cover a distance of approximately 60 km (which is roughly 2 hours of battery life). The e scooter comes with a 600 W charger, which can efficiently re-charge the battery in 3 hours.
Taking into consideration safety issues during bad weather conditions, the e scooter has been installed with a windscreen which is nano-coated with a hydrophobic layer that makes water droplets and dirt particles deflect off the surface, improving visibility in dark and rainy conditions…Comfy seating for two, spacious legroom for driver and above all intelligent design & use of materials makes this bike one of the greenest e scooters till date.
