TGA is set to launch a powered folding version of its Minimo mobility scooter next month when it exhibits its range at the Naidex show.
The new Minimo Autofold is an enhanced version of the original model, which launched in 2013.
TGA’s range of Minimo boot scooters now includes a choice of models for varying lifestyles and mobility needs.
The latest addition to the family incorporates all the features and benefits of the range with the added advantage of powered folding. This technological development is designed to offer better convenience for users with limited dexterity or mobility.
Complete folding and unfolding can be activated in seconds, according to TGA, allowing owners and partners to deploy or store the Minimo faster.
When riding the 4mph Minimo Autofold, users benefit from a design that provides day-long comfort and reliability, for up to 15km on a single charge.
A turning radius of 820mm delivers the manoeuvrability to negotiate public transport and shops, while the 60mm ground clearance and pneumatic tyres and four-wheel configuration provide off-road stability.
With a maximum user weight of 115kg (18 stone) the Minimo Autofold is suitable for a wide variety of owners seeking a transportable lightweight solution.
Daniel Stone, TGA’s managing director, said: “The success of our Minimo family is testament to the quality of TGA design. Our ethos for safety, innovative technology and advanced ergonomics have culminated in the new Minimo Autofold.
“Powered folding combined with lightweight handling means more people with restricted mobility can benefit from freedom further afield.
“The need for reliable, comfortable and transportable scooters continues to grow as individuals seek the opportunity to travel away from home. With the Minimo Autofold, TGA has once again raised the bar in terms of flexible, hassle-free independence.”
