Zero and Quadro team up to build four-wheel e-Qooder

Four wheeled electric scooter due by end of 2019

Zero Motorcycles has entered into a partnership with Quadro Vehicles and the collaboration will produce an electric four-wheeler by the end of 2019.

The e-Qooder maxi-scooter will utilise the California company’s Silicon Valley technology with the Swiss firm’s precision manufacturing.

A press release says that “the combined results will reset the standards of accessibility, performance, and safety in the realms of personal mobility and urban commuting”.

Zero has been designing and building electric components to propel their “category-defining” motorcycles for over 12 years. Quadro says it recognises that Zero is “the perfect choice” for its first electric vehicle.

Quadro’s four-wheeled tilting scooter, the Qooder, boasts a built-in hydraulic tilt system (HTS) design that allows it to bank upwards of 45 degrees into corners without losing all four wheels of traction.

“Quadro Vehicles stands for advanced mobility solutions and has already launched the Qooder in Europe, which is a new category of commuting mobility, patented and unique in the world. For this reason we wanted to partner with the best to enter decisively the ZEV (zero-emissions vehicle) market with a unique point of view by the end of 2019,” said Paolo Gagliardo, Quadro CEO.

“We enter into powertrain partnerships with an exclusive few companies that share in our values of innovation, leadership, passion and a commitment to quality,” said Jim Callahan, director of business development at Zero . “The electric Qooder prototype has been great fun to ride already. Electrifying the Qooder experience with a Zero powertrain is certain to be a game changer when it comes to describing options for individual mobility.”
