The Dualtron off road eScooter is a flagship model of Minimotors Co., Ltd. launched on February 2016. It was manufactured in a Minimotors China factory with technology and design from Korea. With the distinguishing feature of being the world’s first all wheel drive eScooter; with two BLDC HUB motors, two controllers, dual suspension for off road driving comfort, two disk brakes to provide stable and smooth braking, LED headlights and taillights and selection to operation in Single or Dual motor mode, the Dualtron quickly won over the market for being the most progressive eScooter.
Product development started from Spring 2014 with a series of late night brain storming and strategic meetings with a target in mind to develop the world's 1st all wheel drive off road scooter. Shortly after, a task force was created to select the materials that would be strong and light enough to construct the components for the eScooter. In the process, we compared and tested many different kinds of materials in order to arrive at the best ones. To ensure maximum stability and driving comfort in the most extreme riding conditions. All our prototypes were tested continuously with a checklist that included 5 criteria: Performance, Driving comfort, Safety, Durability, and Performance Scalability using different modules of motors or batteries. Development for the first generation Dualtron lasted 1 year and 6 months. The work doesn’t stop there, however; we are continuously pushing the boundaries and working to innovate and improve on range of odd road mobility products.
