Recognising talented design teams
The European Product Design Award aims to ‘recognise the efforts of talented designers and design teams who aim to improve our daily lives with a practical and beautiful creation, designed to solve a problem, make life easier or simply spread joy’.
In their award entry, Zapp said of the scooter: ‘We have created the new design language for the next generation scooter and created a revolution in electric high-performance personal transportation. It’s simple – we offer scooters with style and relevance to urban lifestyles.
‘At Zapp, we always knew that urban commuting and getting to your destination quickly and efficiently was achievable through electric technology. We also knew that with the right design and engineering, it would be possible to bring high-end motorcycle performance to the scooter ride in a way that was fun and city-stylish, responsive to those with urban lives.’
This award proves Zapp’s dedication to the entire two-wheeled experience, as they hope to revolutionise both the design and performance of electric scooters. The award isn’t the first time Zapp has been recognised for their design initiatives. Both Electrek.co.uk and Motorcycle News named Zapp’s i300 scooter as one of the best electric bikes to look out for in 2019.
