Jeep has joined the ranks of automakers releasing branded, two-wheeled electric vehicles to its mobility lineup. The go-anywhere automaker today unveiled the RX200 electric scooter made by Razor.
Since it’s a Jeep, it has to be able to handle more than a sidewalk and has thusly been fitted with eight-inch, air-filled tires that are perfect for off-road terrain. A high-torque, 200-watt motor is powered by a 24-volt battery system that allows the scooter to get up to a top speed of 12 mph (19 km/h) and provides 40 minutes of ride time per charge.
“Razor is always looking for creative ways to excite our riders and provide an exhilarating adventure,” said Jim Wagner, president of Razor Scooter. “We are thrilled to collaborate with the iconic Jeep brand to create the RX200, which is powerful enough for the off-road capability to go explore the outdoors.”
The Jeep RX200 features a wide, comfortable standing platform and riser-style handlebars. A mark on the side also proudly denotes that, like other Jeep branded vehicles, it has been “Trail Rated.”
Finished in army green, it gets a white star, a Jeep decal and badge, as well as big headlights in case you’re riding at night. Like many larger Jeep vehicles, the standing platform is also finished with a topographic-style tread plate.
“Our collaboration with Razor to introduce its new electric scooter is a natural extension for the Jeep brand’s licensing portfolio,” said Kim Adams House, head of licensing and merchandising – all brands for Stellantis. “With its rugged Jeep brand style-and-feel attributes, the Jeep RX200 is made for adventure, capturing the spirit of the brand’s core DNA to go anywhere and do anything.”
The scooter is recommended for riders who are 18 years of age or older. Those interested can order the Jeep RX200 at Razor.com for $499.
