Stigo Electric Scooter - a beautiful ride
World's fastest folding electric scooter folds in 5 seconds!
Stigo was developed in response to the need expressed by many urban commuters for an electric bicycle or scooter.
However, there was always the problem of where to store the vehicle. It is not that easy to take a bicycle into a city apartment or find a place on the street to charge your electric scooter.
The Stigo solution is really simple – it folds into a wheeled suitcase-type package you can bring along anywhere and charge from a regular outlet.
Stigo quickly folds into a slim suitcase-style design that can be rolled along on two rear wheels. It neatly stands upright within a small footprint allowing it to be taken on public transport.
After your ride to the office, Stigo will go into the elevator with you and stand next to your desk occupying very little space.
If you live in an apartment, there's no need to leave it chained up in the lobby. Stigo will stand neatly inside your own home.

IS THE HANDLEBAR OR THE SEAT ADJUSTABLE?
The design of the Stigo allows the rider’s weight to be distributed between three supporting points: arms, legs and upper body – this reduces stress to muscles and back. The Stigo riding position is designed to support the natural S-shaped spine, allowing for even distribution of body weight, so there is no need for adjustment in seat or handlebar height.
DOES STIGO HAVE SUSPENSION?
Due to the ergonomic seat and the inflatable tyres extra suspension is not needed.

Electric Scooter FAQ
Stigo is a Class L1e street legal electric scooter.
Will my new electric scooter need to be registered?
If you intend to only use your electric scooter on private property, then no registration is necessary. When used on public highways however, your electric scooter must be registered as a new vehicle with the DVLA. You will need to complete a V55/4 application form which is available at your local DVLA office. The registration fee is currently £55.00. Stigos come supplied with a Certificate of Conformity (COC) and Import Document to help with this process.
Do I need to tax my electric scooter?
No, electric scooters are exempt from road tax.
Does my electric scooter require an MOT?
Yes, but only after 3 years, and then every year thereafter. Electric scooters have very few moving parts with virtually no maintenance required. But wearable parts such as brakes, tyres and lights will need to be checked regularly.
Does my electric scooter need to be insured?
Your electric scooter must be fully insured. Your insurance company will use the same classification as a 50cc motorbike.
Do I need to wear a helmet?
Legally you are responsible for wearing a motorbike helmet when riding an electric scooter.
Do I need a licence to ride an electric scooter on public roads in the UK?
Yes. You must have a valid provisional or full driving licence covering mopeds or motorcycles to ride electric scooters (which are classified as mopeds). If you already have a full licence covering cars you may be able to use it automatically as a licence for riding our electric scooters.
As with all mopeds and motorcycles you may need to complete a compulsory basic training course (CBT) to validate your licence before you can ride on the road.
- If you obtained your full driving licence before 1 February 2001 you do not need to complete CBT.
- If you obtained your full driving licence on or after 1 February 2001 then CBT is required after which you can ride without L plates.
- If you have a provisional moped licence then CBT is required and you must display L plates until you qualify for a full licence – provisional entitlement with CBT is valid for two years after which CBT must be retaken.
CBT can be completed in one day and costs around £70. More information about Driver Vehicle Licensing including CBT can be found at www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring.
