Honda introduced the Motocompacto, an electric scooter that folds into a compact rectangle measuring only 3.7″ wide, 21.1″ tall, and 29.2″ long. In its folded state, it occupies minimal space and can be fully charged from a standard wall outlet in just 3.5 hours.

At 41.3 pounds, it’s somewhat heavy to carry around, making it less suitable for taking on a train and using it for last-mile travel. Instead, the compact design seems targeted at apartment dwellers in buildings with elevators. Honda highlights “campus cruising” as a use case, emphasizing its suitability for campus life due to its ability to be carried into classrooms.

The Motocompacto could be practical for European car commuters who drive to the outskirts of a city that restricts cars in the city center. In such cases, the scooter could be taken out of the trunk to complete the journey.

For security, Honda mentions that the kickstand has a steel welded lock loop compatible with most bike locks. Despite lacking a close-up shot, at a cost of $1,000, and given its appeal, some might feel uneasy leaving it secured outside. Regardless of its weight at 41.3 pounds, there’s a preference to find a way to bring it into the office each day.

For businesses, the form factor of the scooter makes it perfect for branding:

Honda says these will be available in the U.S. starting in November.
