Magdalena Krenek, General Manager Italia of Voi Technology states
Safety and sustainability are the founding pillars of Voi Technology. The vehicle updates were made by listening to our users first. A month ago we sent to the press the results of a survey carried out among our users, in which we asked what were the improvements to be made to the vehicle in order to guarantee them greater safety. We had already carried out this survey a year ago across Europe. The responses of Italian users confirmed that the Voiager 5 responds to their requests: larger wheels and more sensitive suspensions, to ensure better cushioning in the presence of non-smooth road surfaces, a wider platform and finally arrows with automatic shutdown, to allow users to concentrate on driving rather than on the handlebars to turn off the arrows at the end of the curve
VOIAGER 5: wheels, brakes and new design
For more safety and for a more stable ride on the cobblestone of Milan oi sanpietrini of Rome, the V5 has a larger front wheel than the previous model, a thicker tread and better cushioning. The distance between the ground and the platform has been increased to allow the wheels to better deal with any holes in the road surface, allowing to the user to move more easily in the city.
With you, safety always comes first. THE brakes of the V5 are optimized to be more durable and robust. The cables are of the latest generation, reinforced vandalism proof and guarantee an easier revision of the brakes.
To develop V5, Voi took into account the mobility needs of different communities and targets such as women, people with different abilities, seniors and parents with young children. The collaboration took place with organizations such as Open Inclusion e Women in Transport. This level of commitment is unprecedented in the industry micromobilità and, combined with Voi’s R&D, has allowed the company’s engineers to create solutions for different mobility needs.
VOIAGER 5: inclusive features of the new model
- A new dashboard design of the V5, thanks to the addition of a mobile phone holder integrated into the handlebar and placed in a central position, which allows users to move more safely
- A more ergonomic handlebar where the brakes, turn signal switch and bell are easier to reach, even for those with small hands
- Auto-clearing direction indicators to prevent users from having to look down while running to turn them off
Krenek he added
Traditionally, transportation services and products are designed by men for men, but more inclusive vehicles are needed to make transportation better and more accessible for all. That is why it was important to work with so many people and different organizations to make the V5 our safest and most inclusive vehicle
To make your service increasingly sustainable, Voi continues to improve its vehicles with the aim of creating a completely sustainable and circular electric scooter. Building on the strengths of the previous models, the new V5 has further increased its sustainability
- extending its lifespan to five years
- increasing modularity to counteract damage from vandalism, facilitate repairs and reuse of parts
- using a higher percentage of recycled materials
- ensuring the reuse and recycling of its components at the end of their life cycle
The V5 is built using the most sustainable solutions currently available on the market in terms of recycling. The percentage of recycled materials that make up the Electric scooter is now higher than 30%, more than double that of the previous model. This result was possible thanks to the close collaboration with the whole supply chain. Additionally, nearly 90% of the vehicle’s components have been redesigned to improve time and the repairability.
VOIAGER 5: further other advantages
The V5 has a better accuracy e precisionthe entire V5 fleet is equipped with the latest technology Internet of Things (IoT), thanks to which users will be able to finish their rides at designated parking points with less than one meter accuracy. On V5 scooters, users and non-users can report any incorrect parking directly to the Voi team by simply scanning the code QR with the camera of their smartphone. In this way, the company team will be able to intervene in a short time. You developed the V5 going to strengthen the points where the V4 required major repairs, with a view to increasing the life of the vehicle.
