US-based Micromobility firm Superpedestrian has launched its LINK shared e-scooters in nine new European cities over the past three months.
Superpedestrian first arrived in Europe last year, introducing shared fleets in Rome, Madrid and Alcalá de Henares.
It has since sped up expansion on the continent, launching fleets in cities and towns across Austria, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Sweden since the start of 2021.
Meanwhile, seven new locations are due in Italy before the end of June.
By September 2021 LINK shared e-scooters will be available for residents in more than 24 European cities, enabling around 100,000 miles of emissions-free travel every day.
Superpedestrian claims to provide the “world’s smartest and safest e-scooter”, with its LINK machine featuring Vehicle Intelligent Safety (VIS), which allows it to detect and respond to hazards in milliseconds.
“This achievement is confirmation that Superpedestrian’s shared e-scooters are now really taking off in Europe,” said Superpedestrian vice president EMEA Haya Douidri.
“Adding nine locations in just a few weeks, with a further seven to come by the end of June, and serving 24 European cities less than one year after entering the market, are tremendous achievements.
“It’s proof that our market-leading safe and smart e-scooters, with their robust design and advanced self-diagnostic and self-protection technologies, are ideally suited to Europe’s cities, riders and pedestrians.”
