September 15, 2023 - سكوتر هوندا الكهربائي الجديد القابل للطي موتوكومباكتو يشبه عند تخزينه قطعة أنيقة من الأمتعة، ويبلغ سعره أقل من 1000 دولار، وهو بمثابة إحياء لذكرى شقيقه محرك البنزين في الثمانينيات.

In the early 1980s, Honda launched a compact hatchback car in Japan called the City, which uniquely offered a factory add-on of a cuboid, folding petrol engine scooter, called the Motocompacto – designed to be stored in the City’s boot.

Forty years later, Honda has revisited the idea by unveiling the foldable Motocompacto e-scooter – a modern, sleeker, and some might say, cuter, reimagining of it's older sibling.

The Motocompacto (2023) resembles a piece of carry-on luggage, or perhaps a folding table, and weighs 19 kilogrammes (41 pounds) – less than half the weight of the 1980s original, which came in at 42kg (93lbs).

Capable of 24km/h (15mph) and with a range of 19km (12 miles), the Motocompacto features a folding seat, handlebars and rear wheel, and will cost $995 when it launches in November 2023.
