bo company statement on inclusion of electric scooters to The Queen’s Speech.

9th May 2022. Bristol, UK.

  • Speaking to the transport select committee on 27th April Grant Shapps announced the inclusion of electric scooter legislation to the upcoming Queen’s Speech.

  • This marks a historic moment in the UK’s progression toward becoming a leader in zero emission transport solutions.

  • Having received the most innovation funding of any UK scooter company, bo mobility welcomes this opportunity to boost British investment to the sector.

Following news that electric scooter legislation would be introduced through The Queen’s speech, bo mobility CEO and co-founder Oscar Morgan said “Legalising people to transition away from cars to more efficient, enjoyable modes of transport will be seen as one of the great transport disruptions of this century.” 

“This validation of electric scooters as a vehicle category can finally release the chokehold on British investment that we and other innovators to the sector have been waiting for.” 

“e-scooters are the perfect urban vehicle: zero pollution, fun to ride, more convenient than an e-bike and easy to store at home.”

“The UK is uniquely well positioned to become a global innovation leader in urban electric vehicles, drawing on a wealth of relevant experience from the automotive and advanced engineering industries.” “With over 750,000 private scooters already estimated on UK streets, we are delighted to see this important and obvious step taken to create an appropriate framework for safe regulation.”

bo

bo was founded in 2019 by Formula One Advanced Engineering and Automotive designers to prove that zero emission can be the best way to travel. bo exists to create the first urban electric vehicles that fully empower people to transition out from their cars. 

bo is bringing a new concept to those people seeking a better way to move through the city. On June 2nd, bo will unveil its launch product, bo M, at the Micromobility World event in Amsterdam.

Leave everything you thought about e-scooters behind. bo has a clear mission: to give urban professionals a viable, rideable and attractive alternative to their cars. 

The founders asked themselves - which future do we want to be a part of, one in which traffic gets worse and worse, or a well designed, clean mobile future? We then asked, what is actually preventing us from leaving our cars behind, and transitioning to smarter ways to get around.

The answers came through constant innovation and imaginative design building on the founder's experience in Formula One Advanced Engineering and the Automotive Industry. The company is building a Vision that moves away from more traffic, high costs and pollution - to a future based on modern, light transport solutions that will never compromise on technology, comfort or design. We never stand still.
