Terra Motors A4000i

Terra Motors will introduce the worlds first "connected" scooter with the ability to update and connect with the manufacturer. To be released in late 2013, the Terra Motors A4000i will use an integrated iPhone to inform the rider of things like electricity consumption, remaining battery life, average speed, mileage and navigation information.

In return, your iPhone will update and be updated through a Terra Motors app. This data will be communicated via normal 3G networks back to the manufacturer. The app will also record and allow the rider to follow their travels via the web. Other unique features include a removable battery that is said to last a massive 50,000 km's. The battery takes 4.5 hours to charge.

Terra Motors claim the A4000i will have a top speed of 65 km/h and a total range of 65 km's. All these figures come with a series of big "ifs". (i.e. vehicle status, weather, road conditions, maintenance, how you drive, and other factors)

The Terra Motors A4000i has been getting some significant attention around the globe for being the worlds first fully connected scooter. Built in Japan, the A4000i is yet to be given a recommended retail price. Doubt it will make it here in Australia and probably won't be that cheap either.
