What has been dubbed by its manufacturer as being the “e-scooter for everyone” — the Terra Motors A2000 — was recently unveiled in Tokyo, Japan.

The new A2000 e-scooter builds on the success and design of the company’s earlier A4000i model — and was developed with the intention of cracking the global scooter market.

Terra Motors has noted that, with the competitive pricing of the new A2000 model, it was “hoping” for its success — as there seems to be an empty niche there for a high-quality, straightforward electric scooter with a “reasonable” price.

“September 29th, 2014, we launched A4000i, the world’s first e-scooter with smartphone connection as our flagship model. Terra has received more than 300 orders of A4000i from Japan, Vietnam, Italy, and Iran, in the first 3 months. Following this success, today we are pleased to launch A2000,” stated Toru Tokushige, the current CEO of Terra Motors.

A recent email sent to CleanTechnica outlined the new model’s offerings (and the company’s sales strategies) thusly:

There are several changes between A2000 and A4000i. A4000i has single shock rear suspension, lithium-ion battery, iPhone connection, and only with white color. A2000 has double shock rear suspension, Lead-acid battery, without iPhone connection, and three colors including white, green and red purple.

A2000 will first be available in Vietnam from January 2015 as Terra Motors Vietnam will open 15 showrooms until March 2015. Terra Motors is planning to make distributor agreements in 10-15 countries until this summer to market A2000 worldwide. Suggested retail price is approximately US$2,000, depending on duties and taxes in each country. Terra Motors will continue to launch the product line of electric bikes with competitive prices to satisfy more market demand this year.
