Lenovo outs its own M2 electric scooter in the Philippines, priced

It's a light heavyweight

Lenovo recently announced the local availability of its M2 Electric scooter, its first in the country. As the brand expands its device portfolio from PCs and smartphones to more tech-lifestyle products, Lenovo aims to give you a reliable travel companion with the M2.

Riders of the M2 Electric Scooter can fully enjoy traveling without worrying about traffic, rising gas and fare prices, and even parking. It’s equipped with a powerful 350W motor and 7.5Ah high-capacity battery, and can move with a top speed of 25 km/h and can travel up to 30 km in one full charge. Lenovo also installed an intelligent battery management system that protects the battery against common issues facing electric vehicles: short-circuiting, overcurrent, overcharge, over-discharge, and extreme temperatures.

It also features a dustproof and waterproof IP54 rating, making it suitable for riding under light rain and on dusty terrain. It is also stable enough to support a load up to 120kg. Riders will also find its max incline of 15° useful when going through steep roads. The scooter’s frame is made from magnesium and aluminum alloy, which has a stronger impact resistance for further user safety.

It also has a cruise control function that automatically lets the scooter maintain and control constant acceleration and speed while moving. This can help in lessening hand fatigue, especially on longer drives as riders no longer need to constantly press the acceleration button. Moreover, the M2 Electric Scooter supports speed shifting that allows it to quickly change gears.

The handle houses an LED screen that displays vital information. Riders can reference it to keep track of parameters such as speed, mileage, gear used, and battery capacity. It also comes with mobile app control and Bluetooth support, making it possible for riders to connect the scooter with other devices or accessories.

For added protection and comfort on the road, the Lenovo M2 Electric Scooter has an innovative triple-brake and triple-damping system. Aside from its electronic brake that cuts the motor’s power, the scooter also has a disc and pedal brake for added protection against sudden accidents. Meanwhile, the triple-damping system (hidden shock absorption, spring shock absorption, and honeycomb tire shock absorption) removes any bumps even on rough surfaces, ensuring total comfort and stability while on the road.

“The M2 Electric Scooter is in line with Lenovo’s unwavering dedication to constantly innovate and challenge conventions through our products. The ongoing health crisis highlighted the need to connect and do things smartly and safely. Through the M2 Electric Scooter and our other smart devices, Lenovo continues to transform the way people live, work, and play as we reshape expectations and experiences to empower customers with smarter productivity, smarter entertainment, and smarter living for all,” said Michael NganLenovo Philippines President and General Manager.

The Lenovo M2 electric scooter is now on sale at Lenovo concept stores and authorized dealers nationwide for PHP 19,995.
