SKODA electric two-wheel concept for sustainable micromobility in the city

By showcasing the KLEMENT mobility concept at the Geneva Motor Show, ŠKODA is providing an insight into the car manufacturer’s vision for the future of micromobility in cities: electric, innovative and modern. The integrated 4-kW rear hub motor accelerates the KLEMENT to a top speed of 45 km/h, and the throttle and brake control are made child’s play by the pivoting pedals. This allows for handling that is as innovative as it is effortless. A hydraulic brake at the front equipped with ABS as well as LED lights integrated into the concept guarantee a safe ride at all times. The KLEMENT also traces an arc back to the company’s roots – back to 124 years ago when the story of ŠKODA began with the manufacturing of bicycles under founding fathers Laurin & Klemen.

An ideal project to work on

The first ZIP by Premier Inn – a new ‘no frills’ offer from the hotel chain has opened in Cardiff. Designed by PriestmanGoode, the rooms are for travellers looking for outstanding basics at a low price. Luke Hawes, Director at PriestmanGoode says: „ZIP has been an ideal project to work on. Whitbread has been really visionary in looking at how our expertise in maximising small spaces could help create the perfect budget-friendly hotel room. “The design is focused to offer travellers all the basics, but brilliantly done, with a good quality of finish. We’re delighted with the end result.“ Premier Inn had conducted extensive consumer research and found that customers were willing to forego space and central location in favour of outstanding basics at a lower price. PriestmanGoode was brought onboard for its expertise in maximising small spaces. From designing small studio cabins for solo travellers on cruise ships to creating multi-functional seat environments in aircraft interiors, the London and China-based studio has consistently been at the forefront of innovation in the design of compact environments. “Our process is very hands on, and we worked closely with Premier Inn to construct and test mock ups of the room” Hawes continues.
