Designing useR centric E-kickscooters & business models for Enhancing interModality

2021 - 2023

The use of different and optimally combined transport modes in a seamless way is one of the key challenges to achieve greater sustainability in smart cities transport systems.

Each mode of transport has its own advantages and satisfies different mobility purposes and needs. The core of new electrified microvehicle concept is to combine design and user needs for an easier usage within traditional transportation modes (e.g. public transport) in both urban and suburban areas.

DREEM aims at finalizing and testing a safer and modular 3-wheel electric kickscooter for personal urban and suburban mobility in three different pilot cases: City of Torino, University of Gothenburg and Tractebel, while exploring the feasibility of innovative business models and circular economy.

The project presents two main innovation levels:

  • on the vehicle side with the development of new features in term of modularity, foldability and improved safety
  • on the systemic side, the consortium will study and present new business models for a win-win situation for all stakeholders.


DREEM objectives are:

  • Improve safety compared to existing micromobility vehicles
  • Offer a light and easy to fold e-kickscooter
  • Offer a flexible range adapted to user needs
  • A mobility solution integrated with existing networks
  • An innovative business model to offer a mobility solution adapted to different types of users
  • Develop a whole user experience around the DREEM service
  • Increase the sustainability of the vehicle and the business model
