“The long-term rental option is the perfect solution for the dilemma faced by car-conscious city dwellers,” said Wheels CEO Marco McCottry. “Wheels’ sit-down scooters are easy to operate and allow for the flexibility of car ownership in a way that is more sustainable and less expensive. This offering has been available in New York City for some time, and we see the same opportunity and need in Miami or any similarly dense, urban market.”
Wheels, which recently entered into a Merger Agreement with Helbiz, developed its new patented vehicle in-house. The sit-down scooter model is easy for new riders to learn how to use and easy to ride which makes it a safe alternative to other options on the market.
