Mahindra’s electric skate scooter ‘Kick’ is offering a host of mobility solutions in San Francisco, and now in Barcelona and Santiago in Chile. It’s a motorised skate-scooter and Anand Mahindra wants to pitch it as a last-mile electric mobility solution for small commutes.

Mahindra & Mahindra on Tuesday showcased the electric ‘Kick’ scooter, developed by San Francisco-headquartered Scoot Networks (in which it holds a majority stake) to ministers and other stakeholders, offering it as a one-person mobility solution that can be hired at dirt-cheap rates to easily navigate short distances across crowded streets.

Scoot is offering a host of mobility solutions in San Francisco, and now in Barcelona and Santiago in Chile. India, for which it appears to be a “perfect last-mile solution”, is now being explored as a potential market, Mahindra said.

“The goal in showcasing the Kick here was exploratory. The Kick should enter the discussions around last-mile mobility solutions,” Mahindra said.

Among others, the scooter was shown to Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
